The story of Crazy for Chocolate- Chocolate Chip Cookies. It’s Friday afternoon and chocolate chip cookies have been on my mind all day. I need some cookies, or in my friend Erin’s words- If I don’t get some cookies “I ‘m going to have to hurt you”. I start to get out ingredients for the usual choc chip cookies, and decide instead to try something new. Found a recipe for Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, made a few changes- now they are- drum roll ….Crazy for Chocolate- Chocolate Chip Cookies. You’re going to love these! Promise.
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semi sweet choc chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips for topping cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.In a small bowl, mix together flour and soda. Cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla, beat until fluffy. At low speed, beat in cocoa and milk. With a wooden spoon, mix in flour, soda, chocolate chips and nuts, just until blended. If dough is too dry, mix in another tablespoon of milk. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until set. If using Convection setting, Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.
Place 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a small Ziplock bag and microwave for 1 minute. Squish bag until all choc chips are mixed together and melted. Snip off one corner of the bag and squeeze 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of chocolate on top of each cookie.
