Hot Chocolate Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Friday when Tyson got home from school we made some toasty-warm hot chocolate and sat outside on our quilt and played with baby girl. Oh my goodness I love those two together. Daddy and baby adore each other.

I love crisp fall days spent loving on these two. (Especially with a cup of hot chocolate to keep me warm.) ...Speaking of hot chocolate, if you are needing your fix you have come to the right place. 

You can't get better than hot chocolate cookies...that is if the dough ever makes it into the oven.. because the one thing better than hot chocolate cookies is hot chocolate cookie dough!

In a separate mixing bowl cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.  Next add the eggs and vanilla. Slowly add your dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Mix until well combined. The dough should be fairly thick.

Finally stir in chocolate chips. Allow the dough to chill for about an hour.
