I brought dinner to a friend last night, and decided to bake some cookies to go along with their meal. I have the allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app on my iPhone, so I did a search for cookies and came up with these beauties. I had everything on hand, so I didn't even need to take an extra trip to the store (I love it when that happens). Of course, we saved some cookies for ourselves and they were a big hit with my family. Really, there is so much chocolate...what is not to love!?!?!?!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup of shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In large bowl, beat butter, shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
These cookies are definitely not to be considered as "health food", but they're oh sooooo good. They are really decadent and rich and chocolaty and yummy. Ohhhh, coooookies!
