Triple Chocolate Cookies (old recipe)

“Lord, let your constant love surround us, for our hope is in you alone.” Psalm 33:22

My plan was not to ‘test’ the recipes sent to me by all of you, but when Amy Whitson e-mailed this to me I knew I had to make them. They are delicious and make tons. I tried them without white chocolate chips and added a bag of the toffee chips with bits of chocolate…yummy!

2 sticks butter, softened
2/3 C. brown sugar
2/3 C. white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
2 1/3 c. all-purpose flour
2/3 c. cocoa powder
1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pkg. white chocolate chips
Variation: Omit white chocolate chips and sub. 1 bag of toffee bits

Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla together until smooth. Add eggs, baking soda, and salt. Add flour and cocoa a little at a time until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 9-10 minutes.

Makes 3-4 dozen.

It can be hard to tell if they are done because they are brown but better to be underdone than over done. Just make sure the center looks cooked through.
