If you read yesterday’s post I explained to you the little bake-off we had here at my house. So here is the ‘opposing’ recipe…double chocolate chip cookies! I let the little brother scour Pinterest (which was new to him) and find a recipe he wanted to make. Of course, he chose the most chocolate filled recipe out there. But hey, I’m fine with that. I will never complain about too much chocolate.
So I read all the ingredients off to him while he was slaving away by the mixer. It was all going well until I look up from my computer to see him about to pour 3/4 cup of baking soda in the bowl instead of 3/4 teaspoon. Haha. Luckily, I stopped him just in time. Wouldn’t that have been a disaster! Overall, he did a great job in the kitchen. It might have been the first time my mom had to get cocoa powder out a basketball uniform.
So after we were in the clear (when he left the kitchen!) I scooped the dough on the tray and baked em’ up. They turned out great, even after the little mishap.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with an electric mixer.
Once combined, slowly add in flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa.
Add in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop teaspoon sized dough on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Yum-o! These were definitely worth making. Despite the near-death disaster (of the cookies), everything turned out great. I left for the evening and when I came back these cookies were gone. Surprise, surprise.
