Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Hello all!  As I sit here on this Sunday morning, I have the need to end this weekend on a sweet note. Before the crazy hustle and bustle of monday morning begins, putting my mind in a sweet, chocolatey place just seems more than appropriate. These cookies are very similar to my Chocolate Chip cookies, but just by adding Ghirardelli cocoa. Hope that you try these and satisfy that sweet tooth you have been fighting all week! Enjoy!
