Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! The entire world loves chocolate (except for my Pumpkin)… I love dark chocolate. Chocolate cake, chocolate pie, chocolate pudding, I’ve even been known to eat a square of baking chocolate. I’ve used and modified many chocolate cookie recipes and this is my favorite.

Dark Chocolate Cookies

Dark Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients: 3/4 c. melted butter, 1/2 c. dark cocoa powder, 1 c. dark brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 Tbsp. vanilla, 2 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 c. sugar
Mix together butter, cocoa, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly stir flour mixture into chocolate batter half a cup at a time. Cover bowl and refrigerate for a few hours. Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll dough into 1″ balls and roll in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove cookies from tray and place on a cooling rack.
*Usually I bake chocolate with almond extract instead of vanilla, but this recipe I actually used vanilla extract.
Hubster was standing over the oven with a jar of peanut butter in hand, waiting to spread it on the warm cookies.
What flavor do you like the best paired with chocolate?
