Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another great thing about being at my parents' house is my mom's awesome kitchen, seriously it is like a dream kitchen and the creativity just flows there. I was tasked with baking my sweet grandma some cookies and my grandma is a chocolate-lover, hm.. I wonder if that is where I get my love of chocolate from? Anyways I decided upon baking her chocolate chocolate chip cookies. My parents raved about them when they came out of the oven and then when my grandma received them in the mail, and only 3 were broken, she raved about them too. So I suggest you make these cookies for those special people in your life and have them rave about how great these cookies are and you get all the credit ;-)
 
First, gather together your ingredients.
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup packed brown sugar, 2 large eggs, slightly beaten, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa, 2 cups chocolate chips (you could also use peanut butter chips, M&M's). Add 1 cup of walnuts if you want some crunch in your cookies.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Put your butter in a mixing bowl and give it a good creaming with your mixer. 
 
Add in the white and brown sugars and mix again.

 
 Add in the eggs and vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture. Cream all these ingredients together. 
 
 
Next add in the flour, baking soda and cocoa powder.

 
 Give all the ingredients a good mix, scraping down the sides of your mixing bowl if necessary. Last, add in the chocolate chips or whatever nut or chocolate item you are using. 

 
Roll out the dough into 1 inch balls and place them on your baking sheet about 2 inches a part, 
they will spread out a bit.

 
Pop your cookies into the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, pull the cookies out of then oven, let them cool slightly on the cookie sheet to set and then take them off the cookie sheet onto a rack to cool. 

 
Then serve, eat and enjoy with a tall glass of ice cold milk!

These are my FAVORITE cookies and no one makes them enough! I am buying a cookie scoop and making these over the holiday weekend.

Those look SO good. May have to try next time I'm in the mood to bake. The kitchen does make all the difference. Mine is so small and I don't have a dishwasher so I hate cooking in it.

I am glad i don't live near you I would be fatter. I also learned something yesterday while lying in the bed. I watched these french people making cookies, pastries etc and they said the key to mixing is not to add all the butter at one time. To add a little mix, a little and mix because the liquid ingredients cause the other ingredients to separate. Who'd a thunk it?

Andrea {blonde ambitions} said...
