Yesterday was Administrative Professionals Day. We are lucky enough in our department to have an amazing administrative assistant. She takes care of all of our daily disasters as if they were nothing at all. She was the one to save the day when I didn't have enough chairs for all the students in my classroom the first day and when we had the spark situation. She does pretty much everything.
She definitely deserved some chocolate chocolate chip cookies, so that's what I brought her. She liked them, even at 7:45 in the morning. (Really, is there a bad time for chocolate?)
You should make these for a neighbor, a coworker, a family friend, a mother, a brother, a loyal blog reader, or even an excellent dentist. (On second thought, your dentist doesn't need to know you eat these or that they even exist. How about an excellent grocer? Or banker? Or teacher?). You may want to double or triple the recipe.
These cookies promise to bring a smile to someone's face. They're super-chocolatey with a crunch, yet they have a nice soft center and creamy chocolate chips.
Who deserves a chocolatey thank you in your life?
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe from Foodnetwork.com
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
- 2 1/4 c flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 sticks of butter, softened
- 1 c sugar
- 1 c brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1/2 c cocoa
- 1-2 c chocolate chips
Drop batter by the heaping tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet. They will flatten as they bake, so give them a little room to grow. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes. If you want a softer cookie, remove them from the oven sooner. Cool them on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
