Super Chocolate Cookies

February 8, 2010

We were heading to a super bowl party and we decided to bring what else but COOKIES!  We’ve been eating pretty healthy lately, so this was quite the treat for us!  It was such a treat that we made both these and chocolate chip cookies.  I have to say, the best part of making cookies is eating the batter.  I have absolutely no self restraint when it comes to cookie batter – – I’m always left wondering why I don’t end up with many cookies!

It is hard to find a really good cookie recipe…but this one hits the spot! It’s rich without being overly sweet.  I think it would be good with nuts or coconut in it, but Erin likes them best just as we made them.  They are great right out of the oven when the chocolate chips are still ooey and gooey.  You definitely need a glass of milk to polish this one off.   Cookies and Milk – love the classic combo!

Super Chocolate Cookies
Recipe from Gimme Some Oven

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (or dark chocolate cocoa powder)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

Directions:

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. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased 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.

Depending on how much batter you eat, it makes around 26 cookies!

    I made these as a Valentine’s Day dessert. They were super easy. And tasted great. I served them with mint chocolate chip ice cream. I bet they would taste great with peanut butter ice cream. I’ll definitely make these again.
