These cookies are good enough by themselves but with a little vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between two, you’ll be sure to cool off in the summer heat!
1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks), at room temperature
1 cup organic granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 extra-large eggs
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa (dutch processed is a good choice)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and eggs. Add the cocoa and mix again. In a small bowl mix together the flour, soda and salt. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop 2 tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets that have been prepared with parchment paper. Flatten the dough slightly with your hands and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
