  • In a large bowl mix the butter and shortening until fluffy.
  • Add the sugar, baking powder and salt; mix until combined
  • Mix in the egg, egg yolks and vanilla until combined, scraping sides of the bowl.
  • Mix in the flour until combined, forming a soft dough.
  • Remove 3/4 cup of the dough to a small bowl and add the sifted powdered sugar, cocoa powder and melted butter. Mix well to combine
  • Add the 1/4 tsp. of almond extract to the remaining dough.
  • Measure out 1 tablespoon of almond-flavored dough and make 30 balls with the dough
  • Roll the chocolate dough into 30 1" balls.
  • Flatten the almond-flavored dough and place a chocolate dough ball in the center and mold the dough around it to make a round ball.
  • Roll the ball in the nonpareil sprinkles and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 - 11 minutes at 375 degrees.


Right after you roll the two cookie dough flavors into a ball immediately roll the ball into the sprinkles. The heat of your hands makes the dough sticky and the nonpareils will stick better.
