How To Make chewy chunky cocoa cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets.
  • 2
    In a large mixer bowl or stand mixer, beat together butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add in corn syrup and eggs, one at a time.
  • 3
    In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cream of tarter, cocoa, salt and soda. Add these into the butter/sugar mixture and beat on low until well mixed.
  • 4
    With a large wooden spoon, stir in chocolate morsels, nuts and raisins. Refrigerate dough for 30-40 minutes until firm enough to handle. Grease your hands with cooking spray.
  • 5
    With hands, roll the dough into golf ball sized balls and roll them in reserved sugar. Place on baking sheet and flatten slightly with a glass. If the glass sticks, try moistening with water and dipping the glass into sugar before flattening.
  • 6
    Bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned around edges and crackly on top. Cool on cookie racks. Store in sealed containers.
