Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is based on the Polka Dot Cookies from Guittard. I made it with their mint chips and the result was fantastic. They are almost a cross between a brownie and a cookie. At first I was a little worried that the cookies would spread but they don't so pile on a good tablespoon of dough (I use a tablespoon cookie scoop). I list chocolate chips in the recipe - feel free to use any type of chip. These cookies were great with the mint but would be equally awesome with peanut butter or butterscotch or even just chocolate to double the chocolate punch of these cookies. They definitely need milk and are perfect for these wintery days (we're having snowmaggedon here in Washington).

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 ¼ cup sugar
3 eggs
2 teas vanilla
1 cup cocoa
½ teas baking soda
1 ½ cup flour
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Add cocoa and baking soda, slowly mix until smooth. Add flour ½ cup at a time. Mix in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
