Ingredients: 
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablilla Squares HERNAN Mexican Hot Chocolate, grated
1/4 cup granulated sugar
 
Instructions:
1.  Preheat the oven to 350°F
2.  In a large bowl beat butter and brown sugar, at medium speed, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the butter is light and fully. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula. Add the egg and the vanilla, and mix on low speed, until the egg is completely incorporated into the butter.

4.  Portion the dough with a 2-tablespoon scoop then roll it into balls. Place the granulated sugar in a bowl and roll each ball of dough in it, coating evenly. 
5.  Bake 7 cookies at a time on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper for about 12 minutes.
6.  Let cool completely on the sheet tray.
