These cookies are a huge hit in my house. I seem to make them more often than any others, and I use a variety of whatever chocolate chips I have on hand. If you use good salt like fleur de sel, you too will be come addicted to this recipe. I also freeze the dough in portioned rounds and write the baking instructions on the bag. If frozen they take the higher end of the time range to bake, but they sure are good warm! Use high quality chocolate for delicious results.
Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Cookies
Yield 24 cookies
Bake at 325 degrees F for 12-14 minutes
2/3 cup chocolate chips (melted and cooled)
1 1/4 cups AP flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/8tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp good salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
3/4 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
2 tsp vanilla (I use vanilla bean paste but extract is fine)
2 cups chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet, dark, chunks, a chopped bar of chocolate, peanut butter chips, or a combo)
Melt the 2/3 cup of chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl (45 seconds) and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool a bit.
Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats.
Sift the dry ingredients together, flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Cream the butter until light and fluffy in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer in a large bowl.
Add in the brown sugar and continue to mix until pale and fluffy 3-5 minutes .
Add in egg and mix until fully incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary.
Add in vanilla and melted chocolate and mix on low until combined.
Add in the dry ingredients and again, mix on low until combined. Do not over mix.
Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula until evenly distributed.
Using a portion scoop, make even balls, flatten slightly and place on baking sheet. (Dough can also be frozen at this point.)
Bake at 325 degrees F for 12-14 minutes.
