These are the perfect chocolate cookie. Chewy and very chocolate-y! Try them with white chocolate chips or topped with an almond to make them even more special.
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk or white chocolate chips - You can even use a mixture of half of each kind
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place rack in center of oven. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In large bowl, beat butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla with a mixer until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. This cookie dough is pretty soft so it may be a bit hard to roll into balls. Try chilling the dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes if it is too difficult to work with.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
