Chocolate Deluxe Cookies
2-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/3 cup Extra Dark Cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1 sticks (1/2 cup) butter (room temp or melted)
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chip of your choice. ( we love Ghiradelli chips)
Candy Coated pieces (we love to use m&ms!)
PREHEAT OVEN to 375°F
In a stand-alone mixer bowl or large bowl, add butter and brown sugar. Beat until creamed together. Add Vanilla and eggs, beat until everything is well blended and smooth. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Add Flour mixture slowly while the mixer is on. (We use the flour guard to avoid a huge mess!) when all flour is added, turn off mixer and pour in chips and m&ms. Mix by hand.
Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment and place cookie dough onto the cookie sheet by using a spoon or scoop. You can make them as large or small as you want. I usually do MONSTER SIZE COOKIES so I don't have to switch out pans in the oven as much. Make sure to leave about 2 or more inches between each dough drop on the sheet.
Bake at 375°F for 7-10 minutes. Ovens vary and so do cookie preferences. The less baking time, the softer the cookie. I cook mine around 8 minutes. SOFT! The longer you bake them, the crisper the cookie. The result is up to you!
Remove from cookie sheet with a spatula and place on a cooling rack or butcher paper to cool. Enjoy warm and gooey or completely cooled!
