Death by Chocolate Cookies
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg and egg yolk until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/4″ balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 9 minutes or until tops are cracked and almost set. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

    I always go for a cookie when I want something sweet. It would be great to have these in my cupboard right now. I am getting a bit bored with everyone trying to be good, and wish January was over so we can just go back to eating everything!

    Delicious! My family loved them. I did flatten the rolled dough out a tad before I put them in the oven- the first batch hardly spread. Overall, a yummy success! Thanks!
