These cookies. I don’t even know how to describe how decadent and delicious they are. I found the recipe on another website, where they indicated the chocolate chips are optional. I’m here to tell you no, they are not optional. Made without chocolate chips they’re ok, but really just a decent chocolate cookie that wouldn’t stand out from the crowd. With the chocolate chips, forget about it.
The first time I made these and brought them into work, all you could hear was moaning and people repeating “oh wow” repeatedly as they ate them, and they were all gone within a matter of minutes. They’re incredibly sinful and indulgent and will give you rockstar status among those you decide to share them with (if you can force yourself to share, that is!).
As far as cookies go, these are super easy to put together. It’s not a cookie dough that has to chill out in the fridge before you can bake them, which is part of why I love them so much! Instant, amazing chocolate gratification. Using the hershey special dark cocoa powder is strongly encouraged, as I have made them with that and made them with regular cocoa powder and the special dark really adds a special somethin-somethin.
If you have these ingredients in your house right now, I highly encourage you to run, not walk, to your kitchen and throw them together immediately. And if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go stuff my face with them now instead of just talking about them.
