I saw this post and thought that the cookies sounded unique and delicious. These cookies really do melt in your mouth. The buttermilk keeps the cookies incredibly moist, and the chocolate chips get melty and delicious. I used some bittersweet Ghirardelli chocolate baking chips that were a lot wider than standard chocolate chips, and they only added to the intense chocolatey goodness of these cookies.
Melt-in-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
Melt the butter in a small, microwave safe bowl.
In a large bowl, combine the melted butter (still warm) with cocoa powder and whisk until very smooth. Whisk in sugar, vanilla extract and buttermilk. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until no streaks of flour remain. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop dough in 1-inch balls into prepared baking sheet, leaving about two inches between cookies to allow for spread.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set around the edges.
Cool for 2-3 minutes on a baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack with a spatula to cool completely.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
