Tomorrow at school, our kindergartner will be enjoying his first ever Valentine’s Day Party. He is beyond excited. He has signed his name on all of his carefully selected cards. He chose a red shirt to wear, because it is Valentine’s Day and of course you wear red on Valentine’s Day. (Duh, mama!)
He is also excited to take in a big platter of double chocolate cookies. Usually we eat these cookies plain, but I figured I’d dress them up a bit for his class. After all, it is important that 5 year olds get their share of sugar on Valentine’s Day, right?
Double Chocolate Cookies
- cup butter or margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- In a mixing bowl, beat the butter or margarine and sugars together until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg and beat an additional minute.
- In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to the mixing bowl and stir just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
- Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into a ball and place on baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. (Makes about 3 dozen cookies.)
