Get a double dose of chocolate with these delicious double chocolate chip cookies made with cocoa powder.
Have you ever had the kind of day where one type of chocolate isn’t enough? When you just need as much chocolate as you can pack into a couple of bites? It was that kind of day. But even the worst of days can be made better with chocolate, so the kiddo and I whipped up these double chocolate chip cookies with some of the cocoa powder I’d meant to use.
And they were delicious! They’re based on this recipe, but we left out the nuts, used white chocolate chips and substituted self-rising flour because I was all out of all-purpose flour and didn’t want to run to the grocery store. I’m lazy like that.
My son loved these double chocolate chip cookies made with cocoa powder. I wasn’t sure he’d like them, to be honest, because he thinks cocoa powder looks like dirt. But he had several for himself and then asked for extras to feed all of his superheroes. I can’t be sure, but I think the cookies for his superheroes ended up in his tummy, too. 😉
