Chocoholics rejoice! These rich, intensely chocolatey cookies boast gooey, fudge-like interiors studded with two types of chocolate chips.
If you like chocolate, then boy do I have a treat for you today! These cookies feature just about every form of chocolate conceivable. Cocoa powder? Check. Melted chocolate? Check. Chocolate chips? Check, check (two kinds!).
Hmmm…perhaps in that case, these should have been called Quadruple Chocolate Fudge Cookies? No matter. They are deep, rich, moist, fudgey bites of chocolate heaven. And I think we can leave it at that.
Who am I kidding? Of course we can’t leave it at that. Because y’all know that I am wordy and I use way too many descriptive, flowery words in my writing, particularly when I am waxing poetic about my favorite things. And chocolate is most certainly on my list of favorite things.
So. These cookies. Quite simply, they are not your ordinary chocolate cookies. They have a texture that’s simultaneously soft and chewy and gooey. The outside of the cookie bakes up like a delicate veneer while the inside becomes an explosion of intense chocolate…almost like the cookie version of a molten chocolate cake, but without oozing all over your plate. And then, as if all of that chocolate goodness wasn’t enough, there are semi-sweet and white chocolate chips peppered throughout, lending an additional layer of flavor and texture.
Allow me to sum it up for you in basic terms: these cookies will make the chocoholic in your life very, very happy. And if you happen to be that chocoholic, well then, you will ricochet off the wall after taking your first bite…not because of any sugar high, but out of pure, blissful, chocolate-loving delirium.
Find an excuse to bake these soon, whether it’s for your Super Bowl party, or to ring in the Olympics, or to profess your love to your Valentine, or simply because it’s the last Tuesday in January (Hey, that’s today! Bake them today!). One bite of this warm-from-the-oven confection, and your search for the best chocolate cookie ever will be over. Case closed.
