Ridiculous Double Chocolate Cookies

Stop everything… make these…

Why?!?! Because these are hands down the best double chocolate cookies I have to offer you. Maybe it’s because they are the first double chocolate cookies I’ve had since going gluten free almost 2 years ago… but I don’t think so. I gave one to my husband who said,”These are better than Subway’s”… is that a good thing??

Regardless… I had 5 when they came out of the oven and then 2 before bed. They are like a mini brownie chocolate chewy taste explosion in your mouth… not even exaggerating, people. Let’s not waste any time… you gotta get the recipe and make these… NOW!!!

Oh, and yes, these are gluten free 😉 You can make them with regular flour. I adjusted the recipe for both below.

DSC_2610
I used a box (8 oz) of bittersweet chocolate chopped cup and about 3/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips…

Then I rigged up this set up. It’s an oven safe IKEA bowl over a pot of simmering water. It’s my double boiler!! As long as your bowl is heat proof you can use about any bowl.

Stir the chocolate around until it’s all melted…

Like this… then set aside to cool a bit.

In your mixer bowl combine butter, white sugar…

and brown sugar… cream together for a bit.

Next grab 3 eggs… I prefer freckled but any will do 🙂 Add them to the mixing bowl and mix until combined.

DSC_2617
Measure 1/2 cup of flour and add 1/4 tsp salt and if you’re using regular flour or GF flour that doesn’t have baking powder add 1/4 tsp baking powder.

Alternate adding 1/2 the flour mixture and 1/2 the chocolate mixture until it is all in the mixing bowl.  Mix until just combined… no more!!!

It should look like this and have the consistency of mousse…

DSC_2620
If you really like chocolate…which if you’re making this recipe I’m going to go ahead and assume you do… add in almost a cup of chocolate chips… cause, why not!?

Drop by the tablespoon full onto parchment lined baking sheets and bake at 350 until a  toothpick in the center comes out clean.

DSC_2622
They will look like this…

DSC_2623
Give them a minute to cool  on the pan. They will sink down a bit. Then move them to wire racks… uh oh…

DSC_2626
As a baker you just got have to hate when this happens… somewhere between the pan and the cooling rack something goes awry… and you end up with a cookie like this… and who wants to eat a cookie like this???

DSC_2627
(chewing)… and then I ate 4 more… I applaud you if you can eat less than that on your first batch… seriously…

You gotta make these… not for me… for you!! You can thank me later…
