Cocoa Fudge Cookies

Cocoa Fudge Cookies

My daughter started cheerleader camp today so I decided to make some rich and decadent cookies for her to come home too. I found this Cooking Light recipe on MyRecipe that looked perfect.  These cookies couldn’t have been easier to make and both of my kids ABSOLUTELY LOVED them!  They were also a big hit for dessert tonight and my husband loved them too.

Cocoa Fudge Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.

Combine the flour together with the baking soda and salt; mix well.  Melt the butter in a large microwave safe bowl; add the sugars, cocoa, and vanilla then mix until well combined.  Add the yogurt and mix.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the cocoa mixture until well combined.

Place spoonfuls on the silpat mat about 2 inches apart.  Place into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.  Remove from the oven then let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes.  Move the cookies to the wire racks to finish cooling.  Serve with ice cold milk.  Enjoy.

  1. These look so delicious! I would love to have one right now with a glass of cold milk 🙂

  2. I used to make these years ago, when they first showed up in Cooking Light. I had forgotten about them! Don’t know why–they are so good, and easy (and “light”). I’ll have to make a batch soon.

  3. These sound great. I’ve never made a cookie with yogurt. I bet it helped keep them moist.

  4. Those sound great! I will be making these when the weather cools off enough to turn the oven on again!
    : ) Kris

  5. I love your cookies, whenever I bake them they come out perfect from the first time. And although we’ve been celebrating lately and I had a fair share of cookies, looking at yours made me want to bake some!

  6. They look great Pam….guess this is another one I will have to try. We all love chocolate here!

  10. i’d win some major points with the hubs if i made these for him, YUM!

  11. OK those look too easy, there must be a catch 🙂 When it is not 100+ degrees everyday I will have to fire up my oven and give these a try.

  12. Did your daughter have to beat off her brother to get these cookies? I wouldn’t be surprised if she did. My boys would love them.

  13. I’d never have thought to put yogurt in cookies! I bet that’s what makes these so fudgy!

  14. I’m drooling.
    And looking at that glass of milk with the cookies is making me drool even more.

  15. Your daughter is cheerleading now? Uh oh….there goes your free time 😉

  16. these look nice and fudgy. the yogurt is unexpected! all that these need in my eyes is some white chocolate chips. 🙂

  17. I made these today using greek yogurt and they turned out great. they’re like brownies but in cookie form…yum!

  18. Food is a blessing says:
