Double Chocolate Cookies

My youngest daughter, Kelsey, adores chocolate. She will eat chocolate anything! I love white chocolate, and Kelsey loves milk chocolate. So, I decided to make these cookies. They have the best of both worlds.
You will need:

9 Tbs. of softened butter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 Tbs. of pure vanilla extract
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/3 cup of really good unsweetened cocoa
3/4 tsp. of baking soda
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl mix the sugar and butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

Add the egg and the vanilla extract and mix well. Add the flour, cocoa and baking soda and mix well.

Spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray and pinch off some of the dough and form balls the size of walnuts. Place on the baking sheet. Be sure to leave about an inch of space in between them. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Let them cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes. Remove from baking sheets and place on cooling racks until completely cool.

Take your white chocolate chips and place them in a microwave safe bowl and melt. Be sure to microwave in 30 second intervals to ensure that you do not seize your chocolate. Place the melted chocolate in a piping bag with a writing tip and squeeze your desired patterns onto the cookies. You can also just drizzle the chocolate onto the cookies with a spoon if you don't want to do it with a piping bag.

Hope you love them as much as my family does.
