Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is just another version of a classic: chocolate chocolate chip cookies.  I've made these before (probably Mrs. Fields' version - which is YUMMY by the way), but I like playing around with different recipes.  So I made these... my husband is IN LOVE with these cookies!

By the way, the original recipe is compliments of and can be found here.



1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
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 semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


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 and walnuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased 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.


I used a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate.  The milk chocolate I used was Callebaut's.  YUMMY!  It really does make a difference when you use quality products.  It's worth spending the extra bucks to get the best results.

Also, I omitted the nuts.  When given the chance, I generally don't include nuts in recipes.  I like them separate thank you very much.
