Oh how I adore ya, let me count the ways...103,104, 105,....okay, I'll not get too carried away here.  But I am very excited about this recipe!

And I mean EXCITED!!!  It excites me because it is a wonderful, chewy, moist, chocolatey, easy to make cookie that my family LOVES!


It excites me because I have such a hard time finding new cookies my guys will eat....so when one comes along...its golden baby....GOLDEN!

So if you are thinking ahead and planning your lunch box menus for the coming school year....You mean you aren't planning.......your......lunchbox menus?  OK, awkward.....

Make these cookies!!! Nuf said.

 What you Need:
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter at room temperature (2 1/4 sticks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups  all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips (about 2 1/2 cups)
What You Do:

 1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Then, line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

 2.  Add butter and sugars to a large bowl, turn a hand mixer to medium speed and beat until creamy, light and fluffy. 
 3.  Add one egg, then turn mixer to medium and beat until well incorporated. Add the second egg as well as the vanilla extract and beat until they are well incorporated. 
4.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and the salt with a whisk. Whisk to combine.

5.  With the hand mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. The cookie batter will become very thick. You only need to mix until everything has combined.

6.  Add the chocolate chips to the batter and stir to combine.

7.  Drop cookie dough by rounded table-spoonfuls onto baking sheets.  Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until the cookies have puffed a little and the tops are dry. 
8.  ***Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
