wicked good chocolate chocolate chip cookies.

these are dangerous. i had the husband take half of them to some friends today because i would eat them all by myself over the course of a day otherwise.

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp.
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

preheat oven to 325 degrees. cream together the butter and sugars. beat until fluffy. add in the eggs and vanilla and beat again until light and fluffy.

in a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, powder, soda, and salt.

add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until just combined. stir in the chocolate chips.

line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, put 8 balls of dough on each sheet. bake each sheet for 10 to 12 minutes. cookies will look puffy.

makes about 30 big cookies.
