Black n' White Cookies

I have seen these cookies made a million different ways, I love them all! But this creation was an attempt to use up what ingredients I had in my pantry. I am really bad when it comes to buying ingredients to bake something but not using it all up.

1 cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1 bag white chocolate chips, or baking bark.
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl sift together the baking soda and flour. In a separate bowl beat butter, brown sugar, and sugar until creamed together and fluffy. Add both vanilla and almond extract, then beat in eggs adding only one at a time. Add in sifted cocoa powder, making sure it is completely combined. Slowly add your flour mixture. Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 14-15 minutes. When done remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Meanwhile melt your white chocolate (I just melt mine in the microwave.) Make sure your cookies have completely cooled, then dip half of your cookie into the chocolate and place onto a cookie sheet line with parchment paper to set up.
