Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter softened

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In standing mixer or large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • In another bowl whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add flour mixture into the butter mixture and beat until combined. Scrape down sides with spatula if needed.

Notes

This mixture is very sticky and can be chilled for 1 hour prior to baking if desired. This makes it a little easier to handle.
You can omit sprinkles if desired.
