I remember the first time I had them! My mom and I were at a crafter's holiday open house where they had refreshments and they had these cookies. We asked them what they were called and I have been making them since. Love them and so do my kids!
Plus they are super simple! Here's the recipe
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp Clabber Girl baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Combine all ingredients, except the powdered sugar, together in a medium mixing bowl and mix together well. Batter will be dark brown and sticky. Cover with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Put the powdered sugar in a dish and set aside for later. Once batter is chilled roll about 2 tablespoons with your hands in a ball. Roll each cookie ball in the powdered sugar so it is fully coated then place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. I remove immediately at 10 minutes and let the cookies set up a little longer on the cookie sheet. Then remove them and place on a cooling rack. At 10 minutes they are so soft and delicious! Letting them set up on the cookie sheet a little longer after out of the oven allows them to set up more and easier to remove from the cookie sheet. Makes about 2 dozen.

I just made them for a cookie exchange at a Christmas party with friends. They are great around the holidays but will always be a favorite in our cookie jar any time of the year!
