How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the granulated sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, flour, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt. Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips.
  • In a separate bowl combine eggs, oil and milk.
  • Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and mix together until a firm dough is formed. (Start mixing by spoon, but switch over to using your hands - you will almost have to knead it to get the wet and dry ingredients thoroughly combined, but they WILL come together!)
  • With lightly oiled hands, roll dough into 1 1/2" balls. (Note: The verbal recipe indicated "roll into walnut-sized balls", but I think my walnuts are bigger than hers! :) I like to go with about 1 1/2" balls - they will puff up a bit, so use your discretion.)
  • Place on greased cookie sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes; let cool 3 to 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  • FOR ICING: Combine 2 cups confectioner's sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla extract and enough milk to make a thin (but not too thin) icing (approximately 2 tbsp.). Mix until smooth and drizzle over cooled cookies or dip tops of cookies into icing and let stand until dry.

    We make "meatball cookies" every Christmas. My husband is Italian and it is a family tradition!

    Bookmarked it, Christine. I'm always looking for something different to make for Christmas and this just may fit the bill!
