  • 1 C butter softened
  • C sugar
  • C brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • C cocoa powder
  • C chocolate chips*


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
  • Add flour, soda, salt, and cocoa powder to the wet ingredients.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Your dough should be fairly thick.
  • Scoop by spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned and middles are still soft. If they are too round, press the hot cookies down slightly with a spatula after removing from the oven.


*We use approximately 1/2 cup of each: white chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips. You can use whatever you prefer.
