  • Frosting Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 lb (or 4.5 cups) confectionary sugar
  • 1 stick butter (melted)
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa
  • enough milk to make frosting smooth
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, place 1½ cup sugar, 3 oz cream cheese, & 1½ cup oil oil and beat until smooth.
  2. Then add 1 stick of softened butter, 1 tsp vanilla and 4 eggs. Beat this again until smooth.
  3. Add 1 cup milk, 5 cups of flour, ½ cup cocoa, 5 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cloves, 1 tsp cinnamon and beat until smooth.
  4. Fold in the 12 oz bag of chocolate chips and 1 cup of chopped walnuts.
  5. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour, as it makes it easier to work with. You can even make this dough a day or two in advance and refrigerate until you can bake them.
  6. Use a small (2 tsp.) scoop and drop each scoop onto an ungreased cookie sheet. If you use a larger scoop, the cookies will spread out and you'll lose that "meatball" shape. Bake at 350ยบ for 8-10 minutes.
  7. It's not time to make the frosting! Beat together 1 lb. of confectionery sugar, 1 stick of melted butter, 3 tbsp cocoa, and enough milk to make it smooth. Wait for the cookies to cool before frosting.
