Double Chocolate Cookies

What’s better than chocolate cookies? Double chocolate cookies.

So theoretically speaking, quadruple chocolate cookies would be even better, but people, I have my limits. Even when it comes to chocolate.

These cookies are the perfect little treats for a rainy day week. They are also great for sharing, especially with your new co-workers, so that’s why I made an extra batch for K to take to work so that he can make new friends through the power of chocolate.

I made all of my friends through chocolate. Well, chocolate and bacon, either will work.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
125 grams (4 oz) dark chocolate, melted
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 – 1 cup walnuts, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 315F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a mixer until light and creamy for about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until fully incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, then add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.
  5. To that, add in the melted chocolate, the chocolate chips and walnuts. Stirring by hand until just combined.
  6. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls, place them on a lined cookie sheet, and bake cookies for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Cool on wire racks or just consume them immediately with a big glass of milk.
