Double Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cookies

These are deadly, they should be illegal because they are so good!  These are not your grandmother's cookies.  They are rich, decadent and you will not want to share them.  Hide them...hide them well!

To start cream 1 stick of butter and 1 cup of sugar.  Add 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 teaspoon salt to the mix.  Beat in 2 eggs (one at a time).  Then add 6 tablespoons cocoa...yes six, yes I know it is a lot, just do it.  Then add 1 teaspoon baking soda and finally 1 1/2 cups flour.  Then fold in 1 cup butterscotch chips and 1/2 c mini chocolate chips.  Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet at back at 325 for about 13 minutes.  Move them to a cooling rack and let them cool.  Now when no one is looking sneak a cookie.  Take a bite and die, then get back up and sneak another one.  By the time the cookies are cool there will be no more left so you need to go back to the beginning and start over again. 

Seriously these are so good.  They are a soft, chewy cookie that bursts with chocolate and butterscotch flavors.  Definitely not a boring cookie!
