Chocolate Butterscotch Cookie Recipe

Chewy, chocolate, butterscotch heaven!! These cookies far exceeded my expectations!  I have had a bag of butterscotch chips in my pantry for a while now, just screaming at me to bake with them.  I had thought long and hard about what I wanted to create with them, and chocolate cookies came to mind. 

Chocolate Butterscotch Cookie Recipe
Inspired by All Recipes
Makes approximately 4 dozen

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2  1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups butterschotch chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies will be soft. Cool slightly on cookie sheet; remove from sheet onto wire rack to cool completely.

      1)  These cookies freeze well.  So, if you don't want all 4 dozen + cookies tempting you on your counter, you can freeze some away for later.
      2)  If you don't have butterscotch chips in your pantry, no worries.  You can juse chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, walnuts, etc.  Anything you have around.  You can just make the plain chocolate cookies. 
These cookies are so soft and chewy with just the right amount of chocolate flavor baked in, accompanied by the creamy butterscotch chips. 

Warning: You can not eat just one of these! I couldn't even control myself while taking the photos.
