I love madeleines. My kids love madeleines. Now my husband loves them too, but he didn’t until he had these chocolate dipped chocolate madeleines. Oh and the sprinkles from our sponsor Sprinkle Pop, just put them over the top.
It’s really interesting for how much we enjoy madeleines that I only have one other recipe on the site, for pumpkin madeleines. But, remembering how easy they are to make, I’m now thinking of so many wonderful flavor combinations for future recipes.
In order to make madeleines, of any kind, you need a special pan. There are different madeleine pans but most recipes make 18 cookies or more. So, either get two smaller pans or even a large and small. If you only have one, it is imperative you completely cool the pan before adding the next batch. You also need to butter the pan each time too. Trust me on this.
Madeleines are a cake-like confection and the key to making them is to whip the eggs the right length of time. You use your whisk beater, rather than the flat beater on your stand mixer. Using the whisk whips air into the eggs making the batter lighter and producing a light and fluffy result. I used milk chocolate for dipping but you could use dark or semi-sweet if you prefer.
Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Madeleines
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 1 cup cake flour (not self rising)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
- Sprinkle Pop Silver Sprinkle Mix
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Brush madeline pans well with 4 tablespoons of softened butter; refrigerate 5 minutes.
In a small heavy bottomed saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium heat. Remove from heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve into a small bowl; set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip eggs with granulated and brown sugars until light and thickened about 3 to 5 minutes. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt, and stir on low speed until combined. Add vanilla and strained butter; mix just until blended.
Use a teaspoon to fill the molds with batter. Bake until madeleines are firm and a little mound is puffed up in the middle about 12 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling rack
In a small heavy combine chocolate chips and vegetable shortening over medium-low heat. Melt stirring occasionally until all the chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Dip cooled cookies in melted chocolate, a few at a time. Sprinkle silver sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop over wet chocolate.

This post is sponsored on behalf of #ChristmasCookiesWeek. The generous sponsors, YumGoggle, Sprinkle Pop, Silpat and Adams Extracts have provided us with products for recipe creation and a giveaway for our readers. As always, all opinions are my own.
Prize Package #1:
From Adams Extracts comes a selection of baking delights including their prize-winning pound cake mix, pure vanilla extract, pure peppermint extract, double strength pure vanilla extract, pound cake flavor extract and vanilla cinnamon sugar.
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla was sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams, whose imagination was stirred by his wife’s yearning for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out, announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted.
