After visiting the Hershey's Store in Chicago, I've been wanting to make my own version of the fantastic dark chocolate cookies I tried there. This was a very successful copycat, and they were surprisingly simple. I shared these goodies at work (since I could not be trusted at home with the extras!), and they were gone by lunch time. No one could resist the deep chocolate flavor and soft, chewiness of the cookie. Enjoy!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick butter, softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
Very slowly add in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Yields 18 cookies
