Double Down Chocolate Chunk Cookies

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.

    We love dark chocolate and I suspect these cookies wouldn’t last the day in our house.

    gostaria de fazer o cookie de chocolate, mas não sei onde achar cacau holandês aqui no Brasil. Posso substituí-lo?

    I made them the other night for the family and they came out too bitter for my family. I used a stand mixer instead of mixing by hand and the batter came out gritty and too bitter.
