When you’re looking for a special chocolate-y treat that will speak directly to your soul…..look no farther, I’ve got you covered. Chewy, chocolate-y, soft, perfect!
I have my niece Aurora to thank for introducing me to these magical cookies. She made them for a reunion this summer and I innocently grabbed one not knowing how amazing they were. I should have grabbed the entire container and saved myself the multiple trips back to get just one more….
Who knew an innocent chocolate cookie could be so delicious!
Awesome Double Chocolate Cookies
These cookies have the power to make even the most annoying child look cute again, the dirtiest house to just look lived in, and they can even make an eight year old practicing their recorder sound like Mozart. Seriously there isn’t anything that won’t look 100 times better when you have one of these cookies in each hand.
The best part is they are made from the most basic of ingredients and I’m sure you have them all in your cupboard right now.
And the dough, may or may not be even more delicious then the baked cookies….not that I would suggest eating something with raw eggs in it.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1½ cups granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ⅔ cup cocoa powder
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt ( I like to use coarse see salt and I use a scant ¼ tsp)
- 2 cups chocolate chips, milk chocolate or semi-sweet ( I do a mixture of both)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Cream together butter and sugar add egg and vanilla and mix until well combined
- In a separate bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, mix well
- Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and mix until well combined
- Add chocolate chips and mix until evenly dispersed
- Using a cookie scoop or two spoons, scoop dough onto greased cookie sheet. Approx. two tablespoons of dough per cookie.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should be just set. Allow cookies to sit on cookie sheet for a minute or two and transfer to wire cooling rack.
