Today begins the final countdown to Christmas and I thought, what better way to countdown than with a week of sweet treats?? I had one hell of a busy weekend with a graduation to attend and two birthday parties, plus cooking and baking for work. Last night was a long one, but I can’t wait until you see the adorable treat that I made!! That post is coming soon, so keep an eye out!!
I have been making these cookies for a few years now and I usually don’t add the white chocolate chips, but this year I thought it would be a nice changeup. I love chocolate, so chocolate cookies with milk and white chocolate chips are a double score!! And, it helps that the recipe makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies!!
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate baking chips
- 1 cup milk chocolate baking chips
- Heat oven to 350ºF.
Mix sugars, butter, shortening, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, mix completely and then stir in baking chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool for 1 minute, then remove wire rack to cool completely.
