Chocolate lovers, this one’s for you. Sweet little devilish cookies that I dare you not to eat by the dozen.

I came across the recipe in an Easy Organic Cooking booklet that I found among my cookbooks last weekend.  Read more to see what you’ll need to whip up a batch of your own!

You’ll Need:

1/4 cup organic white flour
1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 stick of butter, softened
1/2 cup organic sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp pure vanilla

Start by combining flours, cocoa, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl.

Place 1/2 cup of semisweet chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl, and microwave on HIGH in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval until the chocolate is melted.
{Place another couple of handfuls straight into your mouth}

Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl with a hand mixer until it’s all light and fluffy.

In the same bowl, toss in the egg, milk, vanilla, and melted chocolate and beat until well-blended.
{Don’t get impatient and sample the batter yet. Trust me on this one. Bleh…}

Add the flour mixture from the first step, and beat everything together just until blended. Voila! Cookie dough. Stir in the rest of your chocolate chips.
{It’s now safe to taste the dough. After all, Quality Assurance is the most important part of cooking}

Using a spoon, drop dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.
{Don’t worry if your drops aren’t pretty; these little babies are so delicious, no one will care what they look like}.
Bake in a 350 degree (F) oven for 10 to 11 minutes until set.
