Double Chocolate Chip Cookies! {a guest post by Jessica}

Who doesn't love chocolate??? And what could be better than double chocolate? How about Double Chocolate Chip Cookies? These are sooo good!

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes approximately 3 to 4 dozen delicious morsels

In a large bowl, combine:
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup butter (1 stick and 2 Tbl)
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

Mix with an electric mixer for a few minutes until ingredients are combined.

Now, in a separate bowl, stir together:
3 cups flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients by hand, using the mixer for the first half and a stirring spoon for the rest.

Add one bag of chocolate chips and stir them into the dough.

It's always nice to have a helper, right? :)

Using a teaspoon, scoop cookies onto a greased cookie tray.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and cook for approximately 12-15 minutes. (The original recipe said 10 minutes but the cookies weren't done so I left them in for longer.) Keep checking every few minutes and then...

Take them out of the oven and put them on a cooling tray. Eat one or two and share a few! (You probably didn't need to be told that, did you?) ;)
