There is just something so magical about a chocolate cookie from your childhood. This cookie recipe does just that – reminds us of our Grandma making cookies in her kitchen on the farm. It also reminds us of our own mom making these cookies in her kitchen when we were kids but also now our kids enjoying these cookies that are made in our parent’s kitchen in Michigan.We have made countless dozens of homemade sugar cookies homemade sugar cookies in Gram’s kitchen as well.
Grandma’s Chocolate Cookie Recipe is simple and so good! These cookies are essentially mini chocolate iced cakes disguised as cookies. Ha! Cocoa, chocolate chips, butter equals so much goodness! Our girls love making this Chocolate Cookie Recipe as much as we do. For the holidays we love to add crushed candy canes or peppermints on top of the chocolate icing.
