Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies and a Poll on your Favorite Cookie

What is the first thing that comes to mind when asked, "What is your favorite cookie?" Some like sugar cookies or peanut-butter and some prefer a nutty flavor profile like pecan. However, if surveyed, I am pretty sure most would answer chocolate chip as they just might be the most popular cookie in America. According to all of the stats I checked, they lead in most-loved cookie category. This twist on the classic, doubles up on chocolate to please the extra chocolate-lovers in your life.

Scroll to bottom of post to vote for your favorite cookie!
Like the original recipe, these are a crowd-pleaser. Whether you pair with your favorite ice cream or a huge glass of ice-cold milk, the richness of these cookies make a perfect end-of-dinner treat. 

Bake a batch and wait for the smiles :)

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies
Food Network Recipe Courtesy of Cathy Lowe


2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups chocolate chips, 2 Hershey's chocolate bars, chopped or M&M'S
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl stir together butter, both sugars, eggs, vanilla and cocoa (I did this in a mixer). Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir chocolate chips and walnuts, if using, and stir to distribute evenly.

For cookies: Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets and bake about 10 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.

For bars: Pat dough into a greased 9 inch square baking pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into squares when cooled

Thansks so much for stopping by!

In regards to your question about the painted patio brick, I think it held up fairly well because it is exposed to the Sun all day long when the sun is out. When I first did it, I did use a lot of paint for the initial coat which cost about $30 a can. I was able to get all that I did this year out of that same can and still have enough to most likely refresh it again next year so you are looking at about $10 a year as far as cost. We decided not to put a sealer on it as the sealer is $40 a can and could make the concrete slippery when wet and my luck would be to slip and break a hip!! LOL! we decided to refresh the paint once a year is not too much of a task for how inexpensive it is......
I hope this helped and if you have any other questions about it, please feel free to email me...

This would definitely take care of chocolate needs!

Ann said...

these look just like the ones I make at work but I'm betting yours are better because they are made fresh at home instead of from frozen cookie dough. :)
Since I have a chocolate/peanut butter addiction sometimes I cut the chocolate ones in half and pair it with a half of a peanut butter cookie before baking.
