Chocoholic Choco Chip Cookie

Chocoholic Choco Chip Cookie

Made a batch of choco chip cookie using The Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook recipe. It was delicious but I decided to max the choco level and added cocoa powder to the batter and lessen the sugar content.

My version was sinfully chewy and chocolatey. Perfect with a glass of cold milk or freshly brewed coffee. Another success with kids, teens, adults and seniors.

I called my version Chocoholic Choco Chip Cookie.

Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie
Makes 48 cookies

2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

Beat butter with the white and brown sugar until mixture is creamy and lightened in color, about 4 mins.

Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until incorporated.

Gradually blend in flour mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop by the tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until cookies are golden brown.

Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

Store in airtight containers at room temperature for up to a week.

*Substitute Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips for the Milk Chocolate Chips
