The directions for making chocolate chip cookies:
Pre- heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit which is 190 degrees Celsius.
Take a large bowl and add eggs. Whisk the eggs properly and then add sugar. Mix the two ingredients until the sugar completely dissolves.
Add the butter and vanilla to the mixture and beat it until light and fluffy and keep it aside.
Take a bowl and add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and combine them well. Once the powders get mixed up nicely, add it to the butter mixture and stir it until well blended.
Add the chocolate chips and give it a stir in order to ensure that the chocolate chips are evenly combined with the mixture.
The dough can be scooped by either using an ice cream scoop or the rounded teaspoons can also be used in order to scoop out the dough and drop them onto a baking tray which is lined with parchment paper.

Once the cookies are set, they can be transferred and served in the serving plate.
