Hot Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

 (original recipe found at this site)
I made some of these delicious cookies for Owen's birthday treats for school last week, and they were a hit.  We love these cookies, and Aaron awarded them a 10, which is a big deal :)  Owen gave them 10 as well, and Noah and I give them a 9.  These are never fail, easy to make, and everyone likes them.

Hot Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks salted butter- at room temperature        1 cup white granulated sugar

2/3 cups packed light brown sugar       2 whole large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla                               3-¼ cups all-purpose flour

4 packages (1 oz. Packets, not sugar-free) hot chocolate mix**

1 tsp salt                                           1-¼ tsp baking soda

1 cup each white, milk, and semi-sweet chocolate chips**

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Add to wet ingredients in 3 to

4 parts, making sure all is incorporated. Fold in chips. Chill the dough for an hour or so. Use a ¼ cup as a

scoop to scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges

are golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan. **I added milk chocolate/peanut butter swirl chips instead of white

chocolate chips, and I used 5 oz hot chocolate mix rather than 4 and just substituted out some of the flour.

These are great, and fun since they taste kind of like hot chocolate :)
