It’s no secret that I’m crazy about chocolate (Don’t Touch My Chocolate!) and regular chocolate chip cookies were just not going to cut it, so I did a search on Double Chocolate Cookies and did I ever find a winner. I’m going to post the recipe here so I don’t lose it and so you can make me some for my birthday! (Which is in 11 months and 1 day, but who’s counting?) 😉

Double Chocolate Cookies

1 c. butter or stick margarine
1½ c. white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
2/3 c. cocoa
¾ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
2 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream butter and sugar and add eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and add to butter mixture. (I always cheat here and mix my dry ingredients together on top of the wet before stirring together. I’m not a fan of dirtying unnesassary dishes, but I’m putting in the proper instructions in case you are. 🙂 ) Stir in chocolate chips and drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just set and allow to cool slightly on sheets before transferring to racks to cool.

I substituted butterscotch chips for a ¼ of the chocolate chips because I thought it would look nice. But I think white chocolate chunks would look even better. I also quadrupled the recipe because I quadruple every recipe and ended up with 19 dozen cookies! It’s a good thing they taste so good, (or maybe that’s a bad thing!) Anyway, the recipe should yield 4-5 dozen amazingly soft, chewy and decadent cookies. Enjoy!
