- 1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
- 6 envelopes NESTLÉ ABUELITA Instant Chocolate Drink Mix, divided
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
COMBINE powdered sugar and 2 envelopes Abuelita in small bowl. Set aside.
BEAT granulated sugar, remaining 4 envelopes Abuelita and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; mix until just combined. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm enough to shape into balls.
SHAPE dough into 1-inch balls. Return dough to refrigerator to chill slightly if it becomes too soft to work with. Roll in Abuelita-sugar mixture; place on ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are set and tops are crackled; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with any remaining Abuelita-sugar mixture, if desired.
