Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies
Exactly two weeks ago I posted a link to my Coconut Oil Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars on Instagram. One of my sweet readers (Hi, Lauren!) commented on the post requesting a recipe for double chocolate cookies because her little boys love them, and well, I just couldn’t say no! It’s pretty easy to convince me to get in the kitchen and bake a batch of cookies any day… and when you ask nicely, I get on it! So Lauren, these double chocolate fudge cookies are for you… and every other chocolate lover out there.
These cookies are like pure chocolate fudge!!! I based the dough off my aunt taties famous “death by chocolate cookies“, and after a few twists and tweaks, scored big! I ended up scaling down the butter to just two tablespoons! And scaling the chocolate quantity up to two full cups PLUS cocoa powder! Like I said in the beginning, these cookies truly are for chocolate lovers only 😉
How to make Chocolate Fudge Cookies
- Preheat your oven and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients!
- Melt chocolate chips and the butter in the microwave. And in a separate bowl whisk the vanilla sugars and eggs. Beat in milk and vanilla. Then add melted chocolate in and combine.
- Add the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Then toss in the remaining chocolate chips!
- Scoop 1/4 cupfuls of the batter onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake one tray at a time.
- Press a few extra chocolate chips on top of the warm cookies, if desired. Cool on the cookie sheet… then devour!!!
The Cookie Dough will look more like Brownie Batter
But don’t fret! This is totally normal. Use a large cookie scoop and scoop the batter directly onto the prepared baking sheet!
- These cookies must – I repeat – MUST cool completely on the tray. I usually leave the room for a good hour before I even think about sneaking them off the tray.
- Because these cookies are so chocolate heavy, I added a good pinch of salt and vanilla the the dough. Please don’t skip these two ingredients – they make it work.
- Any chocolate chip brand will do.
Final words of advice… make sure you have a milk chaser ready to pair with a plate of these cookies, and go get baking now 😉 xoxo
