- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon rum extract
- 12 ounces mini chocolate chips

Whisk together flour, salt, and cocoa; set aside.
Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add the vanilla and rum extract and mix. Gradually mix in flour mixture. Mix in mini chocolate chips until evenly incorporated. Cover and chill dough for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place dough on a silicone baking mat about 2 inches apart.
