I’m sure you noticed by now I am a fan of cookies! It’s my favorite thing to bake. While I love about any good cookie I especially love a cookie with chocolate in it. And when you have double chocolate, well, even better! 🙂 And I love dark chocolate. It’s my favorite.
This recipe is from Bakerella. And we all know she knows how to bake! I was excited to try these cookies. So one night while my husband was away Levi and I baked them together!
I love that Levi wanted to help me. He helped me measure all the ingredients and did such a good job! This kid loves chocolate too. I wonder where he gets that from?….
I love how soft and chewy these cookies are. There is also a hint of peanut butter. Not too much to overpower but a nice subtle hint. Just the way I like it. And you can’t go wrong with cocoa + dark chocolate chips!
