Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Found a great recipe that i think I want to hold on to.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Cup Butter, softened
1 1/2 Cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Cups flour
2/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 Cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine in the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until just set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
