  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt together and keep close at hand.
  • Place the butter in a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat on medium speed to soften.
  • Gradually add the sugar and vanilla, and beat, scraping sides down, until smooth and creamy but not airy.
  • Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour mixture, mixing until just combined.
  • Divide the dough in half, shape each half into a ball, wrap each in plastic, and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Working on a smooth surface, form each piece of dough into a log that is 1 1/2 inches thick and 7 1/2 inches long. Use your hand to press down the dough as you form the log to make sure it is solid. Roll gently to smooth it out.
  • Wrap the logs in plastic and chill for 1-2 hours. (The dough can be stored at this point for up to 1 month.)
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk. Spread the sugar on a pice of waxed paper.
  • Brush the logs very lightly with egg yolk, and roll in the sugar.
  • Using a sharp slender knife, slice each log into cookies 1/2 inch thick.
  • Arrange cookies on a baking sheet about an inch apart and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Transfer cookies to a rack to cool to room temperature

Alternative Method: Chocolate Sparklers in the Microwave

Chocolate Sparklers
Chocolate sparklers: the perfect treat for any sweet tooth.

To whip up these delectable Sparklers, start by selecting a spacious, clean, and dry microwave-safe bowl. In it, combine finely chopped dark chocolate and unsalted butter, microwaving in 20-second intervals with regular stirring until the mixture achieves a smooth and fully melted consistency, typically requiring 2-3 intervals. Next, introduce condensed milk and vanilla extract to the melted chocolate, stirring until a harmonious blend is achieved, with the condensed milk imparting sweetness and creaminess. Gently fold in rice cereal to add a delightful crispy texture to your Sparklers. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop spoonfuls of the chocolate mixture onto it, shaping them into small rounds or bite-sized clusters with adequate spacing. Allow them to cool and set by placing the baking sheet in the refrigerator for approximately 30-45 minutes, ensuring the Sparklers harden and maintain their form.
