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 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!
