Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

If you love Texas Sheet Cake you are going to love these cookies. They are bursting with chocolate flavor, chocolate chips and walnuts with a fudgey chocolate frosting. I think I am going to be adding these to my cookie trays at Christmas this year. They reminded of a Christmas cookie at first bite, rich and buttery with lots of chocolate flavor.

I love the mix of cocoa and melted chocolate in these. I added chocolate chips because I wanted additional flavor just because one can never get to much chocolate. Be careful not to overbake these cookies or they will be dry instead of moist and cakey.

    You list baking powder in the ingredients, but in the directions you refer to baking soda. Vanilla is listed in the ingredients, but not mentioned in the directions. You refer to cocoa in the directions for the cookie batter, but it is not listed in the ingredients. The batter tastes yummy so hopefully my cookies turn out well!
