Rich chocolate cookies

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.

  1. I am all for an intense chocolate cookie:-) These must be really good to make it onto so many people’s blogs!

  2. Those look absolutely scrumptious! All day yesterday I was thinking how I wanted some chocolate chip cookies. Maybe I’ll just have to cave and make some.

  3. These do look rich, and delicious! We’re featuring cookies over at the M&T Spotlight this week and I’d love for you to submit this:

  4. We’re making these tonight. My husband saw the recipe and said “ooh, chocolate chocolate chip cookies, we’ve never made those before!”

  5. I needed a last minute cookie recipe using pantry staples. So glad I found this on foodgawker! I ended making 4 dozen bite size cookies. I love thick, fat cookies and these are perfect!
