Chocolate Snowball Cookies

Directions

  1. In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium to high 30 seconds. Add the 1/2 cup powdered sugar, the cocoa powder, vanilla, orange zest, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping bowl as needed. Beat in flour. Stir in chocolate pieces (dough will be crumbly). Use hands to knead dough and shape into a ball. Cover dough and chill 30 to 60 minutes or until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place dough balls 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake about 15 minutes or until cookies are just firm and tops are no longer glossy. Remove; cool on wire racks.
  3. Place the 1 cup powdered sugar in a large plastic bag. Add cooled cookies in batches to bag. Gently shake to coat.
