What's better than Double Chocolate?

Correct Answer? Nothing (unless it involves peanutbutter)

At Scribbit's, Michelle posted her favorite chocolate cookie recipe as well as her husband's favorite. It made me think of this recipe I've been meaning to make for sometime. It is super easy and delicious - it's definitely a cookie to partner with a tall glass of cold milk.

It's from this book, I'm not sure but I think my Grandpa A gave it to me (and possibly, that's why I love it so well). It's full of great recipes to make with the kids.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Mix together and set aside:
2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Melt 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (or 8 squares semi sweet chocolate) for 1 minute, stir until smooth. If necessary, melt an additional 10 seconds at a time. Set aside.

Combine until light and fluffy:
3/4 C butter, softened
3/4 C sugar

Add 2 eggs; beat well. Blend in melted chocolate. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in 2 more cups semi sweet chocolate chips (although I love to use the giant milk chocolate chips). Use a medium scoop to drop cookie onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes at 350; do not overbake. The cookies should be soft. Remove to a cooling rack. This recipe yields 5 dozen tiny cookies or 3 dozen nicely sized cookies.

Oh and about that peanutbutter thing?

This was not good timing to check your blog while I am still fasting. How cruel!

Sounds like a recipe just in time for FHE treats. :)

Between the music playing and the chocolate cookies I'm feeling so nice and relaxed and homey--

That peanut butter looks fabulous actually!
