Another side note, when I bake, I tend to make a mess. Like, a huge mess. I don't know how others are able to keep their kitchens clean when baking. I spilled a lot of flour onto the stove this time, and when I turned my back for a second, my husband, who is apparently 12 years old, had done this:
Isn't he sweet?
Everything else went off without a hitch and the cookies ended up tasting awesome. I mean, seriously, who doesn't love chocolate?!?!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups + 2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons water
1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and water.
Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with a mixer until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture, a little at a time until it's all well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop cookies, about an inch around, onto an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart. Bake 7-8 minutes. Cookies will be soft and puffy when you take them out of the oven.
They will flatten while cooling.
