Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am finally contributing to this blog!!!

There is no picture because I made these Sunday afternoon and then we had the missionaries over and so they were gone before I could think about taking a picture!! Next time I promise!


  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups chocolate chips, 2 Hershey's chocolate bars, chopped or M&M'S
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl stir together butter, both sugars, eggs, vanilla and cocoa. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir chocolate chips and walnuts, if using, and stir to distribute evenly.

For cookies: Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets and bake about 10 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.

For bars: Pat dough into a greased 9 inch square baking pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into squares when cooled

Notes: These are so good!! I would only cook them for 9 minutes if you like them softer. We like them softer and mine were a little too hard at 10 minutes. Also, instead of using all that chocolate just use a lot of chocolate chips and that is fabulous too. Lastly, I left out the nuts. These are really easy and yummy. Enjoy!
