I made some seriously good double chocolate cookies yesterday. (The same ones I made for you, Dad. But these didn’t have ¼ cup of salt in them) Here’s the recipe:
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. flour
¼ c. cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
5 tbs butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
(optional – I added about 1 c. chocolate chips to the finished dough – YUM)
1. combine sugar, eggs, vanilla in one bowl, melt chocolate chips, and combine. Let chocolate set up for 30 min.
2. combine cocoa, baking powder, salt in another bowl.
3. slowly add dry ingredients into chocolate mixture. (use a spoon, not a mixer – that’s how I fried my last mixer) It will be tough to stir when you have all the dry ingredients added.
4. roll dough into balls, bake at 350 for 8 min. Let them cool for 10 min before you transfer them, the centers will be soft because of the chocolate.
5. Makes 2 dozen
YUM YUM YUM. That’s all I have to say about that.
So in other news I’m trying to teach my children how to come when they’re called. I never really thought about it, but my children hardly ever respond to me when I call them. When I was visiting my friends over the weekend, there was an instance where Tracey called all of her children, she only said each kids name one time, and they were all off running to see what she wanted. I was so impressed. My kids need to do that. No more of this calling each kid 5 times, then going looking for them when they don’t respond.
