Small Batch One Bowl Mocha Truffle Cookies

Strange what desire will make foolish people do. Here's an example of the sort of trouble one gets into when one does something one shouldn't be doing. But the power of suggestion is strong: "What are you doing today?" and then, when I didn't answer quickly enough, "Working? Baking?"

Although I had other things to get done, idea of baking had been planted in my head. Then Anna posted a recipe that 1) is small batch, 2) requires only one bowl, and 3) she tagged "exceptional". Suddenly the urge to bake overtook me.

I am a compulsive taster of raw batter, and while the cookies were in the oven, I licked the bowl. I can safely report that the batter is delicious.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a good grip on my tea towel when I pulled the pan out of the oven. I'd love to be able to tell you that my kitchen floor is clean enough to eat off of. It isn't. Not today, anyway.

Fortunately, I didn't drop eleven of the sixteen. For unrelated reasons, I'll hold off on a eating a baked cookie and get back to you on that.
