These cookies are not for the faint of heart. They are intensely rich in chocolate flavor. The cookie dough has a rich chocolate flavor and the chocolate chips ad an even bigger punch. I used the Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips from Costco which are bigger than the normal chocolate chips. You could probably use chocolate chunks instead if you want the same extra rich chocolate flavor.
I tried a recipe I found on Everyday Annie. She made her cookies giant. I chose to make mine more normal-sized and I’m glad I did because they were so rich.
Usually, I need a thick brownie or a chocolate lava cake to satisfy a big chocolate craving, but these cookies were able to do the trick. They were easy to make and I’ll definitely be keeping this recipe.
