1 1/4 Cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 Cups Flour
6 Tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
10 oz bag of Chocolate Chips (I recommend Ghiraardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate)
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
Combine brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, eggs, cocoa, salt and baking soda. I use a electric mixer on medium speed until all ingredients are well combined.
Next add the flour 1 cup at a time.
Last stir in the chocolate chips by hand - it's a great forearm workout :-)
Chill dough for an hour.
Heat oven to 375 degrees
Next put the granulated sugar in one small bowl and the powdered sugar in another small bowl. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and then in the powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheet, then move cookies to paper towels to cool completely.
