One of Hot Chocolate Hits’s greatest hits.
I only know how to do extreme. Extreme excitement. Extreme anxiety. Extreme stress. And, on the occasion, extreme dessert. This recipe for chocolate chocolate chip cookies is pretty extreme. So is my use of ‘extreme’ in this post.
There’s a reason why the word ‘chocolate’ has been utilized twice in this cookie’s name. The dough itself is built upon a foundation of melted dark chocolate and cocoa powder. It is then studded with two different varieties of chocolate (I use milk and dark), though you may choose to add a third by using white chocolate. Apart from eating a bar of chocolate itself, nowhere is that rich, bittersweet flavor more prominent than in this cookie.
These cookies are pure decadence, so I often freeze half the batch and save it for when I really need a chocolate fix (see instructions below on how to do that), or when I have people coming over.
The flavor and texture of this cookie match my expectations of what may be purchased at a niche bakery; dark, damp- not chewy but tender, almost flaky and representative of its name.
If you’re into chocolate, no doubt, these cookies will satisfy your palate.
