The saga of the missing box

These delicious cookies were the perfect reward after the insane challenge of sending Christmas gifts to my daughter and her host family in Belgium…the box never arrived!! She is bummed and so am I 🙁  She has no gifts to give to the family tomorrow morning. Ah the joys of international shipping!

The box cleared customs in Belgium on Thursday the 20th, but has not been delivered. Apparently the postal service would not deliver the box because of it’s “size”. She had to go down to the post office and pay a $150.00 tax to pick up the box!

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy, occasionally scraping down the sides.

The version rolled in the white jimmies is how I originally made these Chocolate Mocha Cookies when this post was created. Since those images are still floating around Pinterest I decided to include them in the updated post. We wouldn’t want to confuse anyone who shows up looking for sprinkles!
