Cocoa Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Crisp outside but chewy inside, these sweet sensations will disappear in a hurry. "I home-school our six children," writes Mary Dudek from Alliance, Ohio. "The kids always have friends over, so I like to keep snacks on hand. They love these cookies."
- 2/3 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
- 3 tablespoons water
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 package (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, oil and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Beat in pudding mix and water. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the chocolate mixture and mix well (dough will be stiff). Stir in the chocolate chips.
- 2. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until set and edges are firm. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: about 8-1/2 dozen.
