These cookies are expensive if you buy them at stores like Mrs Field. As I have most of the ingredients at home, I tried for the very first time to make some on a Sunday morning. They are very good and super easy to make.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

P.s. I only used 1/3 of the sugar listed above.

1) Sift the flour, cocoa, and baking soda together in a bowl.
2) Beat the butter in a mixer until it is soft and creamy.
3) Add in the sugars, salt, and vanilla extract and beat for a few more minutes to combine.
4) Add in the flour and combine on low speed just until the flour is Combined.
5) Add in the chocolate bits and mix.
6) Wrap the logs in plastic and chill for at least an hour; the logs will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator or you can freeze them for a month.

When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Bake them one sheet at a time in the oven for 12 minutes.
