Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. We don’t usually do much around here to celebrate but I decided that since my in house taste tester recently built me a light box he deserved some cookies! Thanks Babe, you are the best, Love you!
These are the perfect cookie to make for your sweetheart!
They are oh, so good. Nice and chewy, not to sweet and full of chocolate flavor!
What you need,
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup butter, softened (I used salted butter, so I didn’t add additional salt)
1 tsp. vanilla
1¾ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
In a bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt if you are using it.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the sugars and butter. Blend until light and fluffy.
Add in the eggs, one at a time until well incorporated.
Add the vanilla.
On low speed add in the flour mixture until just combined.
Stir in the chocolate chunks.
Spoon the dough by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden around the edges.
Let them cool completely on a wire rack and store for up to a week in an air tight container.
For me these cookies are best just out of the oven, they are all warm and melty… to die for‼
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
