I found these when I was 13 years old in an old cookbook. I was home alone after school and made all kinds of interesting things! One day I came across these chocolate cookies and made them. They were hard as a rock and my dad called them “bullets”. That name stuck for years and I learned not to cook them as long. They became a soft and delicious favorite!
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups butter
1 1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt, baking soda
3 1/2 cups flour
sugar for dipping
Mix butter and sugar until fluffy, add eggs. Mix in cocoa powder until well blended and then add flour, salt and soda.
Roll into balls, dip in sugar, place on baking sheet and push down. Let cook around 8 minutes. Do not over bake. cookies will crack when done. They will dry out if over baked.
