I wanted to try some new hamantashen dough recipes and really changed it up with these dark chocolate versions.
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup oil
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 cup flour (can use whole wheat), plus more for rolling
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Homemade Nutella
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat eggs, oil and sugar together in a bowl with a mixer or by hand. Add flour, coocoa, baking powder and salt and mix until well combined. Place dough on a floured surface and roll out to 1/8 inch thick, cut out rounds with a cup or biscuit cutter. Drop a teaspoon of filling in the middle of the circles, pinch three corners together forming a triangle. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 350.
Tip: It might be easier to work with this dough if you put it in the fridge for 30 minutes before rolling.
Note: I first tried this recipe with peanut butter filling and then nutella. Because the dough is very rich and bitter the peanut butter didn't work as well, but the nutella was a major winner.
