death by chocolate cookies

in Cookies

Chocolate cravings are often intense and impossible to ignore. When a handful of chocolate chips fails to suppress your appetite, you’ll be delighted to have these decadent death by chocolate cookies within reach. In this chocolate variation of the quintessential chocolate chip cookie, rich chocolate cookies are studded with regular and mini semisweet chocolate chips. Wash down one (or two!) with a cold glass of milk for a treat. I’m excited to share this recipe with you as part of the Sweet Adventures Death by Chocolate blog hop.

Death by Chocolate Cookies
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg and egg yolk until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/4″ balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 9 minutes or until tops are cracked and almost set. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

Yield – 58 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

I always go for a cookie when I want something sweet. It would be great to have these in my cupboard right now. I am getting a bit bored with everyone trying to be good, and wish January was over so we can just go back to eating everything!

I love chocolate cookies. It’s the perfect combination of bittersweet chocolate and crunch. Yours look fabulous and I’d love one with a cup of tea.

Delicious! My family loved them. I did flatten the rolled dough out a tad before I put them in the oven- the first batch hardly spread. Overall, a yummy success! Thanks!
