A long time ago in a kitchen far, far away there existed a mysterious group of delicious furry creatures named Wookie cookies.  Made of chocolate, chocolate, frosting, and more chocolate, these linguistically inclined individuals were found to be easy to cook and devour.  

Here is an easy step-by-step on how to make a nice batch of Wookie cookies!

Step 1: Ingredient List

The ingredients for these cookies can be broken down into two groups, one for frosting and another for the cookie making:

1 container of black food coloring
1 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cups packed (10½ ounces) light brown sugar
2 large eggs
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
8 ounces semisweet chocolate bars
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened but still cool
1 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons instant coffee or espresso powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 2: Frosting Mix

Making the frosting can be done either before or after the cookies are made but I thought it would be good to put first because it's so easy.  The frosting will be used to create the ammo belt that Chewie always wears.  A little black frosting could also be used for a little Wookie face but I didn't have any toothpicks around to do detailed frosting so I skipped that part.  


1) In a large bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar and shortening until smooth.
2) Gradually mix in the milk and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth and stiff, about 5 minutes.
3) Split the frosting into two equally sized groups keeping one group white and dying the other group with drops of black food coloring (I used about fifteen or twenty but you could use more to get the frosting even darker).  Set the frosting bowls aside for later.

Step 3: Cookie Step 1

Now the actual cookie making will start.  For the first step, mix the baking powder, cocoa, flour, and salt together in a bowl and set it aside for later.  This is simple and doesn't require any stirring.
