Very Decadent Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Very Decadent Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies


COOOOOKIES!!!
Is anyone else out there a chocolate fiend like me? I love anything chocolate. Cookies, cakes, pies, muffins, brownies, ice cream, fudge.. the list could go on for eternity. I have always been a chocolate lover and appreciate trying all sorts of different recipes so when I came up with this one, it just made my heart sing. Truly. It did.
I have been primarily gluten free for the past 1.5 years but occasionally I'll eat gluten; but whether or not you eat wheat or are gluten free, these cookies should be made at least once in your house. I have a wheat version and a gluten free version for you. Aren't I so sweet?

Plop those bad boys onto a baking sheet
Ingredients:Yields approximately 36 cookies
3 sticks of butter, softened
2 eggs
1Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups sugar
*2 cups gluten free flour blend (See below) *or* 2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1-1/2tsp (one and one half tsp) baking soda
1/2tsp sea salt or 1tsp regular salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Look at the delicious babies!
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees after the batter has chilled in the refrigerator at least one hour.
Mix the softened butter and sugar until creamed then add the vanilla and eggs - one at a time until nice and smooth. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and then slowly incorporate that into the wet ingredients. Scrape the bowl and make sure everything is mixed well. Next add the chocolate chips. Refrigerate at least 1 hour then bake at 350 degrees on a parchment lined cookie sheet for 11 minutes. The cookies will continue to cook while they are cooling on the cookie sheet. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Once cooled, move to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Serve with a glass of milk if you're so inclined
*Gluten free flour blend:

1-1/4 brown rice flour
3/4 cups sorghum flour or millet flour
