Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

My hubby and I have been bunking up all weekend in our cozy little condo in Boston due to a massive blizzard we were struck with on Friday evening. It was a doozey let me tell ya!  We got almost two feet of snow and my poor hubby has been shoveling non stop. Normally, I would help in these situations, but baby dumonstah tires me out pretty quickly, plus I don't think I am supposed to lift anything too heavy...shucks. :/  Therefore, I showed my support at home by baking and cooking to fill his tummy up with some yummy energy food and to please the baby. I baked these cookies last night, they are to diiiieee for. I found the recipe online and the original recipe calls for peanut butter chips which sound amazing, but seeing it wasn't really easy for me to leave the house and go to the store I had to use what I had on hand.  For all you chocolate and cookie lovers, I highly recommend these delish treats!

Morning walk on Saturday...
 those snow covered humps are cars!
1 cup of butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 eggs ** I learned eggs should be room temperature when baking
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients
2 cups of all-purpose flour
2/3 cups of unsweetened coco powder
3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 cups of chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In medium bowl cream together butter and sugar. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Sift try ingredients together to get out any lumps in separate bowl.  Stir dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture. Once mixed fold in chocolate chips.

Drop heaping teaspoons of dough onto prepared baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes. Let cool on wire rack. Then pour a nice glass of cold milk and insert cookies into mouth! Chomp! Chomp!:)


  1. Insane picture of the snow - I can't believe those are cars! Stay warm :) These cookies look oh so yummy, and the perfect way to support the husband's hard work of shoveling snow.

    1. Thanks Kristin! Yes, this snow is insane and we may get more this week! AHHH!

  2. Whoa, that picture is insane! Love the cookies though, what a great way to ride out the storm =]

  3. Thanks Emma! Pray for some sun and warm weather for us to melt some of this snow! :)

  4. Delanie makes similar ones but adds peppermint extract. I suggest you try that...Baby Dumonstah will LOVE them!
