  • 1. Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, soda and salt. Beat butter with sugar until stiff, add an egg, a yolk, vanilla and mix until smooth.
  • 2. Gradually add flour and mix just to connect the components, dont stir for a long time. Divide the dough into 2 parts, wrap in a cling film and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • 3. Preheat the oven up to 175 degrees. Take one piece of the dough, roll it out to 4-5 mm, cut out figurines. If the dough crumbles, let it warm up for 3-4 minutes.
  • 4. Roll out the rest of the dough and cut out all the cookies.
  • 5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the cookies, do not overcook! Cookies will be soft at the beginning, then they will harden as they cool down.
  • 6. Crumble the candies. To make a glaze, mix powder and water, may be you will need a little more water. With a zigzag motion apply the glaze on the cookies using a spoon, then immediately sprinkle with the candy crumbs.
