I love baking homemade cookies. I decided to take my original chocolate chip cookie recipe and kick it up a few chocolate notches and add cocoa powder to make chocolate-chocolate chip cookies. I have to admit this was my 6 year olds idea for our chocolate theme this month. He would eat everything chocolate if I let him he has a real chocolate sweet tooth (wonder where he got it from).
This cookie recipe will fix anyone’s sweet chocolate craving! I first mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and all the wet ingredients in a another bowl. Then I combine it all together for chocolate goodness. Scoop the cookie dough on a baking sheet and in 12-15 minutes you have chocolate perfection coming out of the oven.
If your kids don’t have a nut allergy you can add walnuts to the batter (both my little ones are allergic to nuts so no nuts for us). This recipe concludes our chocolate obsession for the month of February. Hope you enjoyed our chocolate recipes as much as we enjoyed baking and more importantly eating them!
