Looks like a cookie, tastes like a brownie!
Whenever I have a cookie craving, I almost always bake the traditional chocolate chip. However, after trying this easy and quick recipe, that could change. These Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Allrecipes.com, are perfect in every way. Sinfully chocolate, without being too sweet and wonderfully chewy without being gooey. It’s like a brownie in cookie form! This treat is sure to liven up your cookie tray and be sure to add the nuts if you’re allergy-free, because the little crunch is heavenly. Enjoy!
CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 48 cookies.
