These are my favorite treat to make for Beltane! Best shared with someone you love, of course. 😉
* 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
* 1 cup white sugar
* 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
* 2 eggs
* 1 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 2 cups white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare baking sheets by lining with parchment paper.
With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and the white and brown sugars, until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa powder, flour, and baking soda; then incorporate into the butter mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop rounded spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches of space between dollops.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to set on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
