I really am a chocoholic, I crave it, I need it. These cookies are a wonderful fix and would be great to take to a holiday cookie swap or added to holiday baskets. The guys loved them and I can’t stop eating them. A really simple cookie, but the chocolate is so satisfying with a cup of coffee or a tall glass of cold milk as the boys like to have it. The perfect little dessert after supper or for an afternoon snack. You could add your favorite chips or chopped pecans but they are simply delicious as they are. Quick and easy to mix up, they are on my list of favorites. What are your favorite cookies?
1 cup + 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Combine flour, baking soda and cocoa. Add to butter mixture and beat until well combined. Use a cookie scoop or shape into balls and place on a lined or greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
