{ chocolate } chocolate chip cookies

I had completely forgotten about these chocolate chocolate chip cookies until we made a batch of coffee ice cream (more on that later!) the other day and I figured that this would be a perfect accompaniment! These cookies are super rich and decadent and perfect for the chocolate lover!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 squares of semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Makes about 9 cookies.

  • Mix flour, brown sugar, sugar, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • Melt chocolate and butter on the stove or microwave.
  • Stir in vanilla and flour mixture into the chocolate and butter.
  • Add egg and mix.
  • Add chocolate chips.
  • Make 9 balls and bake for 15 minutes.

Enjoy!
