Tasty Tuesday

Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c white sugar (I used 1/2 white sugar & 1/2 brown sugar)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 c all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. 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.

3. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set.  Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely

Now.... I'm not a fan of chocolate, unless it's a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup.... but these were amazing!  We ate the crap out of them!!!!  Definitely try them!  
A tip I got was to make the batter and then refrigerate it for an hour before baking, it helps to keep them from going completely flat while baking.  It worked wonderfully! :)  Enjoy!
