Chocolate Covered Strawberry Jello Cookies

I’ve been baking again! That’s right, and these came out soooooo good. Even Hubby was surprised at how good these tasted! I got the recipe for the jello cookies from I heart Naptime but if you know me even a little bit I always have to put my own twist on things. That’s how these chocolate covered strawberry jello cookies were born!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Jello Cookies

This recipe is so easy even I didn’t mess it up! Now, that’s saying something! This is a half batch that makes 18 cookies.

Ingredients

1 3/4 Cup                     All-purpose Flour

1/2 tsp                          Baking Powder

3/4 Cup                        Unsalted Butter (1 1/2 sticks)

1/2 Cup                        Granulated Sugar

1/2                                Egg

1/2 tsp                          Vanilla Extract

4 Tbls                           Strawberry Jello Powder

Pinch                            Kosher Salt

6 oz                              Milk Chocolate Chips (1/2 bag)

Red Sugar for rolling cookie balls in

Directions

Get all of your ingredients ready. Let butter sit on counter for a few hours to get nice and soft. Crack egg into a bowl and whisk so you can use just half of the egg. In separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl add butter and with hand mixer beat butter until fluffy. Add granulated sugar and beat until it is fully incorporated and is lighter in color about 3  minutes. Add the vanilla, the half egg and mix. Gradually with about 1/4 of the mix at a time, add the flour mixture. Beat this until it forms a dough. Add the jello and knead it in the bowl until it is fully mixed and all of the dough is the pink color. Add the chocolate chips and knead into the dough by hand.

Place in the fridge for about 10 minutes so the mixture gets nice and cold before heading into the oven. On a plate mix together a couple tsp of the red sugar with the same amount of dried jello. Now, pinch off pieces of dough and roll into balls about 1 1/2 inches big. Roll this into the sugar mixture and place on greased baking sheet. Once all the balls are rolled flatten them with a bowl or something that is flat on the bottom. Make the cookies about 1/2 inch thick and place into the oven. These will now bake around 10 minutes but check them at 8 minutes to make sure they are not burning. When they are cooked take baking sheet out of oven and let sit on counter for 2 minutes. With a spatula remove cookies and place on to a cool rack on the counter.

I got the recipe for the jello cookies from I heart Naptime but if you know me even a little bit I always have to put my own twist on things. That's how these chocolate covered strawberry jello cookies were born! I love how they really do mimic chocolate covered strawberries. They are a little tart from the jello and the chocolate give it a nice sweetness. YUM!
