Death by Chocolate Cookies

Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, very slightly adapted from Andrea the Kitchen Witch
- Makes about 3 dozen -

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder (I used natural unsweetened)
1 egg
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 - 2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl of a standing mixer, with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and vegetable oil until light and fluffy. Add both sugars and cream again until light and fluffy. Add the cocoa powder and mix until just blended together. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg and vanilla. Mix until blended together, scraping down the sides at least once. Add the flour (start with 1 cup and add until the batter is no longer wet), baking soda and salt. Slowly mix until well combined. Remove bowl from stand mixer and fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.

Scoop batter onto cookie sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes. You want the bottom and edges to be slightly crispy. It's hard to tell when they are done due to the dark color, so use your timer. Allow to cool slightly before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
