- Add vanilla extract, cream de cacao (optional) and eggs, 1 at a time, to the butter mixture. Mix well.
- Slowly add flour mixture to the butter mixture, about ½ cup at a time, until all the flour is incorporated.
- Add mini chocolate chips and stir by hand to incorporate. For best results, chill dough in refrigerator for a few hours before baking.
