Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I have had a cookie obsession lately, and I was getting tired of the same ol' chocolate chip cookies (even though I really love them).  Honestly, I am not a huge chocolate cookie fan (I'd rather have a brownie), but I just thought I would try something different.  I finally found the PERFECT recipe and I make a huge batch each week, freeze little balls of dough, and cook up a few fresh cookies every night for Adam and me.  I even choose this over my regular blonde chocolate chip cookies. Yum! Here goes:


  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl stir together butter, both sugars, eggs, vanilla and cocoa. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir chocolate chips. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto Silpat or silicon baking sheet covered cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes for frozen balls, 9 minutes for fresh dough (they won't look done, but they are). Cool on a baking rack for at least 5 minutes.
