These are by far one of my favorite cookies. I fell in love with Chocolatey Chocolate cookies because of the Grandmas brand cookies that come in the two packs. I used to buy them all the time from the gas station nearby but when I moved to an area that didn’t carry them I was determined to make them myself. ME NEED COOKIES!!!! Sorry, I couldn’t resist a classic Cookie Monster saying. Anywayzzzz lol, I found a recipe that was almost spot on but I had to tweek it just a tad to get the Grandma cookie flavor that I dearly loved.
I love making them huge just like the Grandma packs but you can also make them small and get a good amount out of just one batch. Just one tip, have a glass of milk nearby because these babies are RICH. Perfect for a bake sale or cookie exchange. Everyone loves them!
Turn your mixer on low and mix the butter and sugar until combined
Add Bowl 2 to the mixer, one egg at a time.
Add the cocoa powder.
Add Bowl 3 slowly and allow batter to beat for 2-3 minutes.Take off mixer.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Evenly distribute cookies on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Remember: baking times vary by oven but if making small cookies bake about 10-12 minutes. If making larger cookies about 15-20 minutes.
Cool on baking rack.
Tip: I always double my cookie sheets to ensure the cookies do not burn on the bottom.
Also to achieve soft cookies, bake them only until the edges are slightly done. They will finish cooking once they are out of the oven giving you a perfectly cooked soft cookie.
