  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I used Hershey's
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate mint stout I used Southern Tier Thick Mint Imperial Stout
  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar


  1. Whisk or sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer) beat the sugar and vegetable oil together.

  3. Beat in unsweetened cocoa powder until combined.

  4. Add eggs, vanilla, and beer and beat until combined.

  5. Gradually add flour mixture and beat to combine. 

  6. Transfer dough to an airtight container with lid and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.

  7. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  9. Fill a small bowl with the confectioners sugar.

  10. Using a tablespoon sized scoop, make small balls (about 1 inch round) by scooping out dough and dropping in the confectioners sugar, roll to cover completely, and set on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.   

  11. Bake at 350 for 10 - 12 minutes.  They should have spread out and stay somewhat soft.

  12. Cool for 3-4 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining dough until used up.  

  13. Store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

  1. Return dough to refrigerator to keep chilled in between batches.
  2. Using a tablespoon sized scoop, this made 48 cookies.
  3. If a chocolate mint stout is not available, a chocolate stout can be used and add a tiny bit of mint extract to the dough with the vanilla extract.
