Double Duty Cookies

We were going to multiple parties for multiple days to celebrate the 4th of July. For the first of 4 parties, I was in charge of dessert!

I decided to feed the crowds and make chocolate cookies!

Using Pillsbury as my starting point, I wanted to make two different kinds of cookies without twice as much work.

I settled on chocolate chip (left) and chocolate chocolate chip cookies (right)- but made at the same time... try and follow me on this one- its worth it!

1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 c butter (half melted)
1 1/2 t vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 cups chocolate chips
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat to 375.

Mix the butter and sugars until fluffy. Or, as fluffy as possibly with melted butter.

Add in vanilla and eggs. Stir in flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips.

Using 2 teaspoons, scope out dough in spoonfuls and place on ungreased cookie sheets 2" apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes, cool on sheet, then place on waxed paper.

After scooping out 3 dozen cookies, add the cocoa powder and mix the remaining dough. Repeat scooping and baking until finished.

They were thin and chewy. And the next day, made nice ice cream sandwiches!
