Introduction: Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies
I like to bake cookies with my mom. We were making chocolate chip cookies one day. But I thought we could make them more chocolaty-er. So, I added an extra ¼ cup of coco(a) powder to my mom’s recipe.
(Dad here. My daughter just had an Instructable [3D-Stress-Cube], her first and she was a runner-up in the Math Contest, so she suggested that my son enter a contest too. He loves to bake, and this is a variation on chocolate chip cookies that he “invented” with my wife. I will add some commentary to clarify some steps if I think it is necessary, but will leave it as he typed [maybe add spelling corrections] otherwise.)
This is everything we use(d) to make the cookies (Apparatuses):
Stand mixer (or any mixer)
Cookie scoop (we had 2 sizes)
½ cup of granulated sugar
½ cup of packed brown sugar
1 cup of softened butter, or margarine if you must (We are from Wisconsin, so margarine is verboten.)
¼ cup coco(a) powder
2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ package of semi-sweet chocolate chips (personally I would have dumped the whole bag, but it’s not my recipe)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix (cream) sugars, butter and egg. Stir in coco(a) powder, baking soda, salt, (I love my Oxford comma) and flour. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough on greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, really depends on your oven. Centers should be soft. (At least that is how my wife likes them. I prefer harder cookies [especially these] so I can dip them in milk [again, Wisconsin.]) Remove to Cooling racks.
Step 1: Tools and Ingredients Used
Step 2: Preheat Oven to 375(°F)
Step 3: First Add ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
Step 4: Then Add ½ Cup of (packed) Brown Sugar
Step 5: And Then Add 2 Sticks of Softened Butter
Step 6: Then Add One Egg
(NOT THE SHELL, hopefully you only make that mistake once.)
Step 7: Stir Until It Looks Creamy
(Everything should be incorporated.)
Step 8: And Then You Add 1 Tsp of Baking Soda
Step 9: Then Add ½ Tsp of Salt
Step 10: And Add ¼ Cup of Coco(a) Powder
(This is what makes this cookie special.)
Step 11: Then Add 2¼ Cup of All Purpose
(Be careful and add only ½ -1 cups at a time and mix. This will, hopefully, prevent clouds of flour and a gaunt visage.)
Step 12: Stir Well (while) You Put Them In
Step 13: Keep Stirring Until It All (is Evenly) Brown
Step 14: Then You Add ½ Package of Chocolate Chips
(Again, I would use the whole bag, I mean, whoever complained about TOO many chocolate chips?)
Step 15: Then You Get All the Dough Off
Step 16: Now It’s Time for Cleanup
(Best to keep mom happy.)
Step 17: Now You (grease) Some Cookie Sheets
(May not be necessary, depends on the seasoning of your sheets.)
Step 18: Then You Get a Cookie Scoop and Scoop the Cookie (Dough Balls) Onto the Cookie Sheet
You can add some big ones if you want.
Step 19: Then You Set the Timer on the Oven to 8-10
(We are setting for 10 minutes.)
Step 20: Put the Cookie(s) in the Oven
Step 21: When the Timer's Done...
Take the cookies out and put them on a cooling rack.
And if (you) made big ones, you put those on too.
Step 22: Watch Out for Cracked Cookies!
(This was our one unfortunate casualty and we had to eat it right away.)
Step 23: Now We Eat
(Quality control is very essential in all baking endeavors.)
Step 24: Oh, and Don’t Forget to Wash the Bowl
(Again, it is best to keep mom happy, and she loved the cookies as well.)
Step 25: Final Thoughts...
Dom's final thoughts:
(I) enjoyed sharing this recipe with you(.)
Dad's final thoughts:
It was fun making cookies with my son. He really does enjoy time in the kitchen and baking, especially for his mother.
