Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

While we’re on the subject of chocolate – one of our favorite topics – here’s another recipe for fellow chocoholics. If you liked the one for Best Ever Fudge Brownies, try this one too. And, here’s a plus, it uses many of the same ingredients.
What’s needed . . .
cocoa choc chip ingred (1)
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 C butter softened
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ C powdered cocoa (Hershey’s® Cocoa is my choice)
  • 2C flour
  • ½ bag (6 oz) of Hershey’s® dark chocolate morsels (or 5 oz chopped, unsweetened baker’s chocolate; other substitutions are peanut butter or white chocolate morsels)
Preheat oven to 350°.
    cocoa choc chips cooling (1)
  1. Using a mixer, cream butter, eggs, vanilla until soft. Scrape down bowl.
  2. Add baking soda, salt and cocoa. Scrape again. Gradually add flour. Add chocolate morsels last.
  3. Drop teaspoon-sized drops onto un-greased cooking sheet.
  4. Bake 8-9 minutes.
  5. Cool 2 minutes before transferring to rack or brown paper.
These have also become a favorite of the cookie monster (Grenville) at  the Frog & Penguinn.

I´ve never made chocolate chip cookies and that´s perhaps for the best. They would bring me to an early heart attack because I love them :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day now!

Hi Ann, they taste better than they look. Thanks for the giveaway invite, but we don't accept any awards or enter any giveaways, but do appreciate your invitation.

Christer, you would enjoy thse cookies and as long as you didn't over-indulge should not have to worry about a heart attack. ANyway, chocolate is supposed to be GOOD for one's health - isn't that right?

Sure Judy, you can have a few, but you will have to come to the Frog & Penguinn on the VA eastern shore. Thanks for your visit.

Ginny, let us know when you can get here and we will also put on some tea for you and join you for tea and cookies.

Hi Carole, these have fast become Grenville's favorite and that may have something to do with the double chocolate in them!
