I Dream In Chocolate: Chocolate Butter Cookies

In case you haven't noticed,
I'm sort of in love with chocolate. Seriously.
I think I may even DREAM in chocolate sometimes!
Well, I know I Day-Dream in chocolate :)

The other day when I made these SUPER YUMMY

My first thought was....  
"I wonder how these would taste in Chocolate?"

I'm here to report back
 May I Present...
Chocolate Butter Cookies!

I used the same recipe from Sallie's Texas Cottage site,
And just swapped out the Yellow Cake Mix for Chocolate Cake Mix

Butter Cookies
4 sticks (2 cups) butter, softened (not margarine)
1 box CHOCOLATE cake mix
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
decorating sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Let butter come to room temperature. Place all ingredients in a large bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on low until well blended. If the mixer is not heavy-duty, finish mixing by hand.

Fill a cookie press with cookie dough and press out on an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart.

Sprinkle with decorating sugar, if desired. 
(We decorated ours with Ornaments -aka MnM's!) 
Bake at 350 degrees F 8 to 10 minutes until very lightly browned on edges. Cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer to paper towels or wire racks to finish cooling.

Don't be afraid to DREAM IN CHOCOLATE!
