“I make the dough up for these and scoop them out onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze them for 30 minutes. Then place the balls in a freezer bag. My husband bakes them up a couple at a time when he wants a chocolate fix.”
40 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, softened butter, Crisco shortening and vanilla.
  3. Beat until creamy. (I use my stand mixer-it's much easier).
  4. Add eggs and beat.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  6. Stir in your chocolate chips and nuts (if using) at this point.
  7. Using small cookie scooper, scoop balls out onto parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Put baking sheet in freezer for 30 minutes.
  9. At this point you can put all the balls in a freezer bag for later use.
  10. When you want to make some cookies, pre-heat oven or good toaster oven to 375°. Bake 8-10 minutes. I go 8 in my oven so they stay soft and gooey.
  11. Let cool 2 minutes on pan, then cool on rack.
