Chocolate Snowflake Cookies

Children will gladly help make these cutout cookies that resemble big snowflakes. Have them hold the drinking straw vertically and slightly twist it when making the holes in the dough for a cleaner cut. This cocoa-flavored cookie dough can be made ahead and refrigerated until you´re ready to bake it.
