Fold in chocolate chips and set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, the remaining 1 ½ sugar, ¾ teaspoons salt, the baking soda and cocoa powder.

I saw this recipe in the Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine and had to try it. They are so yummy and just melt in your mouth. Its a perfect blend of two wonderful things...cream cheese & chocolate.
