Double Down Chocolate Chunk Cookies ~ These wickedly addictive double chocolate chip cookies will have you hovering around the cookie jar like a bee to honey.
Tender and chewy these cookies are a mid-point between a crisp cookie and a soft brownie. Not only are these awesome-ly (uh, yes, a real word in my kitchen) good they smell delish while baking. In fact, so much so, I was able to bribe my little guy into quiet submission for the 12 minutes they took to bake.
Call me terrible, I call it efficient. Twelve minutes was all I needed to throw the dishes into the dishwasher and get out the glasses of milk and napkins for the taste testing.
Verdict: My family LURVED these bad boys(or girls, if you are going to get PC on me) and so did I. I love the taste, texture, and most of all I love that these Double Down Chocolate Chunk Cookies are the kind of cookie that can rival any top notch bakery.
A few notes:
- For a more crisp texture bake the cookies for two minutes longer than instructed in the recipe.
- The 4 ounces of chocolate can be changed out for milk chocolate, if that is your palate preference.
- These cookies can be kept at room temperature for 3 days in an airtight container.
