Have you ever had an intense craving for some seriously sweet chocolate? I did this past week, and in my search found this recipe on thechurchcook.blogspot.com. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for!
These cookies have the soft and chewy texture of a brownie, but in a convenient cookie form.
They are quite easy to make, and after the first bite you will be absolutely blown away! Consider yourself warned.
I made about 3 dozen, but I think mine were a little large (not that I am complaining!). The original post can be found here.
Make these now!
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine (unsalted)
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl then set aside
- In a double boiler (I use a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water), melt the 2 cups of chocolate chips with the butter
- After they are completely melted, remove the bowl from the pot of water, and set aside for a few minutes to set
- Beat together the eggs and vanilla until bubbly
- Add the sugar to the egg/vanilla mixture, and mix thoroughly
- Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg/vanilla/sugar mixture, and again mix thoroughly
- Add the flour mixture, and mix until the batter is just coming together
- Fold in the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips
- Set the bowl of cookie dough in the fridge for 30 - 45 minutes to allow it to chill
- While the dough is chilling in the fridge, preheat the oven to 350 F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper
- Roll the dough into small balls (about 1 to 1 1/2 tsps each) and place on the parchment paper (Note: the cookies will spread and flatten out, so leave about 2 inches between each cookie dough all)
- Bake for 8 - 12 minutes, or until the edges just start to firm up and the tops begin to crack
- Let cool, and enjoy with an ice cold glass of milk!
