Crazy for Chocolate

The story of Crazy for Chocolate- Chocolate Chip Cookies. It’s Friday afternoon and chocolate chip cookies have been on my mind all day. I need some cookies, or in my friend Erin’s words- If I don’t get some cookies “I ‘m going to have to hurt you”. I start to get out ingredients for the usual chocolate chip cookies, and decide instead to try something new. Found a recipe for Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, made a few changes- now they are- drum roll ….Crazy for Chocolate- Chocolate Chip Cookies. You’re going to love these! Promise.

 

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are called chocolate chocolate chip cookies because they have two types of chocolate in them. They have cocoa powder which makes the dough super chocolatey. And they have chocolate chips in them. These yummy cookies are a chocolate overload and I never say no to more chocolate!

I love how simple these are to whip up. It’s just like your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe with just a few more added ingredients. Mix your dry ingredients and set it aside. Then cream the butter and sugars. Add in the egg and vanilla to the butter/sugar mixture. Beat in the cocoa and milk and mix well. Then stir in the dry ingredients, chocolate chips and nuts! Easy, right? Cook them for about 10 minutes and do not over-bake! You want these to be nice and chewy.

Cookies are my Love Language

Cookies are the true way to my heart. I love making cookies to brighten my mood, or deliver them to a friend to brighten their mood. Cookies just make everything better. Chocolate does too, right? So make these crazy for chocolate- chocolate chip cookies and bring them over to a friend who you think might need them. They will love you forever!

These are the perfect cookie to make for a dinner party, get-together, picnic, or cookie exchange! Honestly, there is not a bad time to make these super tasty chocolate chocolate chip cookies.

  4. Hi Si! I made these a couple of days ago…..loved, loved, loved them! So I don’t over-indulge in these decadent treats, I eat one or two and then….give the rest away. It’s a great way to manage my cravings for just something small and tasty. Thanks for your blog…..can’t wait to try the Blackberry Slump!Yum!

  5. FYI- I re-checked the original recipe, and it does NOT have salt listed as an ingredient. Didn;t notice that- I think I’ll add a teaspoon next time!

  6. These look soooo good and I love a good heaping amount of chocolate, however I made them yesterday and they were a disaster! It must have been something I did, though I'm a pretty good baker and can't figure out the problem. They came out of the oven flat as boards, really crispy and lacy all around the edges, then immediately turned hard and flaky. The taste was right but the texture of the cookie was awful. Could my baking soda be old? I have no idea what makes a cookie do this.

    I use insulated pans and silpat liners. Does that help?

  7. TTLG: thin and crispy usually means the butter was too soft, or not enough flour. Test the soda by putting a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice in a teaspoon of soda, if it fizzles, it is still good. I have had several people give me feedback on this cookie, with no problems! Did you omit the nuts? If so, you will need to compensate by adding flour to the recipe.

  8. Si,

    I checked the soda and it's fine. The problem must've been the flour because I did omit the nuts and the batter was quite silky and wet – more so than I expected. That will teach me not to follow a recipe exactly! I'll try them again and add more flour next time.

    Thanks for the pointers!
