Chocolate may have been rationed during Rosie’s day, but it’s certainly not today. And there really is no such thing as too much chocolate. Not when you’re a chocolate lover like I am. And with the holidays approaching what better way to celebrate than to add a few touches to a classic recipe, and go for the chocolate. Inspired by the Nestle Toll House recipe.
CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
- 2 sticks butter or margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup cocoa
- 2 tablespoons coffee (if desired)
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 large (12 oz) package of chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350° F. Place flour, baking soda and salt on a piece of wax paper and set aside. Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. Blend in eggs, mixing thoroughly. Add cocoa and coffee, if desired, and mix thoroughly. Blend in dry ingredients, a little at a time, until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoon full onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Note: If coffee is included it may be necessary to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour.
