Are you straight up craving chocolate this holiday season? Well, this recipe will absolutely deliver! Tossed in sugar and choc full of cocoa, these chocolate cookies are slightly firm to the touch yet amazingly soft on the inside. Plus, watching them split open in the oven is a really cool experience! Give these tempting treats a try the next time you’re in need of a super duper chocolate fix.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 2 ½ sticks butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup chopped chocolate chips
- 1-2 additional cups granulated sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a flat cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Beat the butter and sugar together with the back of a spoon until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Mix the eggs and vanilla into the dough.
Add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until everything is well combined.
Pour in the chocolate chips and incorporate them into the mixture.
Shape the dough into 1 ¼ inch balls and roll them in the extra sugar, generously coating the outside.
Place the sugar-coated cookies on your baking sheet. Do not flatten them out; they will spread out on their own in the oven.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving them on to a wire rack to cool down completely.
Share the cookies with your friends and family or leave some out with a glass of milk for the big man in red. If you give this recipe a shot, make sure to let me know! I’d love to hear what you think.
Happy Holidays everyone!
