White Chocolate Chip Cocoa Cookies


The kids have been asking me for cookies...okay, confession, I have been wanting some cookies. :)  But they never object and I never have to talk them into a batch of cookies.  So on Saturday, I decided to whip up a batch using ingredients I already had in the pantry.  Typically, I make chocolate chip or monster cookies (view recipe here) but I didn't have the ingredients for either one of those.  I did have white chocolate chips.  My mom always made a cookie that was chocolate with white chocolate chips.  As a kid, I aways referred to them as opposite cookies.  I didn't have the recipe on hand and she was out of town, so I improvised.  I must say they came out really good and I decided the recipe was worthy of being shared.

Ingredients:
1 stick  (1/2 cup) margarine, softened
1 stick (1/2 cup ) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup cocoa (you may want more depending on taste)
2 1/4 cups flour
1 package white chocolate chips

I am sure I am breaking all the rules when I say this but....dump everything into a stand mixer.  That's right, you heard me. )  After I cream the butter and sugar, I dump everything (except the white chocolate chips) in at once and then start the mixer on low.  I know you should really mix all of your dry ingredients and then all of wet ingredients and then slowly incorporate everything together.  BUT, I was having a major cookie craving - there wasn't any time to follow rules!  

If it makes you feel better, by all means, do it the correct way. :)

Scoop dough onto baking sheets.  Bake in 375 degree oven for 9-11 minutes.



Now, go grab a glass of ice cold milk, a cookie or two, or three, or.... and cozy up on the couch!

Enjoy!
