Minecraft dirt block cookies - Made with chocolate shortbread

Delicious Minecraft cookies topped with chocolate glaze, chocolate sprinkles and green fondant to resemble a "Minecraft Dirt Block". It was a perfect snack for a Minecraft themed birthday party

What you need: Makes about 12 to 14 cookies, about 2 inches each
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
6 ounces very good semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt together. Set aside.

Melt the butter and chocolate chips in the microwave for a minute. Stir to combine.

Mix together butter mixture and sugar in a bowl and cream them together until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the vanilla and sifted flour to the to the butter mixture. Mix on low speed until the dough starts to come together.

Take the dough out and onto a surface dusted with flour and shape into a flat disk. Wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes at least. I kept mine overnight and let it thaw for about 1 minute in the microwave on defrost mode.

Roll the dough 1/2-inch thick and cut with a 2 inch square cookie cutter or, just use a clean ruler and cut them out. Place the cookies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until the cookies are slightly firm to touch. Allow to cool to room temperature.

When the cookies are cool, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Glaze ice the cookies with chocolate glaze. Top them with chocolate sprinkles, and layer a final row of green fondant cut out square to resemble a Minecraft dirt block.

Let them rest on a cool slab until they are completely dry, about 2 hours. Place them in air tight container until they are ready to use. They taste best when used within a week of making. Enjoy!
