Recipe By:

My daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, sent this to me. It can be found all over the Internet


2 cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
¾ cup cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Heat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a small, microwave safe bowl.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter (still warm) with cocoa powder and whisk until very smooth.
  6. Whisk in sugar, vanilla extract and buttermilk.
  7. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until no streaks of flour remain.
  8. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  9. Drop dough in 2 tablespoon balls onto prepared baking sheet, leaving about two inches between cookies to allow for spread.
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set around the edges.
  11. Cool for 2-3 minutes on a baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack with a spatula to cool completely.


Very chocolaty and rich. Don’t over cook them!
