My friends have the best recipes! This one was passed to me a few years ago and it is very well worn! It’s a chocolate cookie with chocolate chips – or peanut butter chips. Completely delicious! They also work well straight from the freezer. In these pictures, I show how to put them on a tray to freeze. Then just throw the frozen balls in a zip top bag in the freezer and you’re ready to put a handful in the oven when you have company unexpectedly stop by! You may need to add a minute or two to the cooking time, but I haven’t noticed a significant difference.
I also find that when I deliver a meal to a friend who is sick or had a baby or just returned home from a funeral, I can bring them this way. The dough is wrapped in parchment paper and tied with a ribbon. I write the cooking instructions in permanent marker on the cookie cylinder. Then all they need to to is spend 10 minutes cooking them for fresh baked dessert deliciousness!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Add until mixed:
3/4c. baking cocoa
1t. baking soda
When the ingredients are all incorporated, add 1 package of chocolate chips or peanut butter chips and stir until just mixed. Place on cookie sheet a few inches apart – do not bake them as close together as these pictures show. I was freezing mine raw, so I didn’t need space for them to spread. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Don’t over bake them. You want chewy and decadent, not hard and crunchy!
