Double Chocolate Cookies

Today, like many Saturday's, I was wandering around the kitchen wondering what to make. I know it seems crazy, but after perfecting and posting so many recipes, it is sometimes hard to think outside the box of usual favorites! 

But today I was reading in one of my old cookbooks. I found a little piece of a paper towel bookmarking a recipe for these chocolate cookies. The recipe has lots of scribbles and markings on it, but I was finally able to decipher my teenage hand writing and give this recipe another try. And let me tell you, it was a dang good idea! I made these at 12:00 pm and they are all gone. And yes it is 6:00pm. 

What to expect from these cookies? Lots and lots of chocolaty goodness that produce a crumbly but chewy cookie. <<< I'm not really sure how that works but it's true! They remind me a lot of these Chocolate Coconut Pecan Cookies, but more purely chocolate. YUM.

Double Chocolate Cookies
Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart
1 cup chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet, I used a mix of both)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1) Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit.
2) In the microwave or in a double boiler, slowly melt together 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips with the butter. Let cool slightly.
3) Put chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Combine all ingredients well with a handheld electric mixer.
4) Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients until incorporated. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
5) Scoop balls of dough onto lined baking sheets and cook until surfaces crack, about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
