Happily Dying of Chocolate

My Favorite Cookie Jar

Dear DoAheads, if you haven’t figured it out yet this tribe eats chocolate. More accurately, we need chocolate. We have many chocolate sayings in our home. A recent favorite…

“I tried a dessert called Death by Chocolate…it only made me stronger.”

Not only do we have chocolate verbiage throughout the home we almost always have chocolate food in the home. A favored item is currently in the freezer. Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. (If you like the plain kind check out Chocolate Chip Cookie Love.)

I’m not wasting any time on this one friends. I’ll go round up the recipe so I can share. While I’m at it I’ll take some photos of the bad boys. And yes, if you insist I’ll sample a few. (Just to keep my review accurate and honest.)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) of butter

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/2 to 3 cups chocolate chips

Warm oven to 360 degrees. Mix sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla. (We like Mexican Vanilla.) Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir in chips. The original recipe calls for 2 cups of chips. Tailor it to whatever your family likes. (You already know where this tribe stands.)

Drop or form into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes. We like cookies on the soft side. If that is your preference you’ll definitely want to remove them sooner than later. If they are still slightly doughy in the center let them cool. We store extras in the freezer. Once thawed the slightly doughy cookie is super soft and tender!

Happily Dying of ChocolateI thought I’d post one more pic of our favorite cookie jar. This time a close up.

With hearts.

And sparkles.

And love.

For Chocolate.

Your DoAhead Friend,


  1. Hopping over from our incouragers group. Love the look and feel of your site. My friend Cindy hosts what she calls Choctoberfest every October. She invites everyone she knows to bring a chocolate dessert to her house to share and she awards prizes for different categories. It’s wildly popular. And, I just have to tell you that my dad’s nickname was Doc, too.

    • No way…Doc?! My hubby and I have been married for 26 years. We’ve dubbed one another with several nicknames over the decades but for some reason “Doc” has stuck. Of course what really makes me smile is the thought of a Choctober Fest! The hamsters in my brain have already started spinning! There is nothing like that around our hometown. I can’t help but think of several organizations that could benefit from something like this (not to mention my palate)! Thanks for stopping over!

  2. Can’t wait to try this recipe! And your site and writing style are so refreshing and full of personality! I love it and can’t wait to come back and visit often!
