Sometimes when I feel a bit antsy or stressed even, I’ll rummage through my pantry. Then I’ll stand at my bar drumming my fingers on the counter. Then I’ll proceed to my bookcase to skim over the books that I have never even baked from yet. Then I’ll grab Sweet Melissa’s book…
And bake these cookies.
I’ve made these a plethora of times. You know, cus I am never really able to sit still. And so begins the cycle.
These cookies really are lovely. If you love dark chocolate as much as I do, it is imperative(!) that you make these cookies! If you’re not too hot for dark chocolate, you can use whatever cocoa powder/chocolate chip combination you’d like!
Everyone who has ever tasted these (save for ONE) has absolutely loved these. They are chocolate nirvana, chewy centered, crispy edged wonderful bites of joy!
Be sure to underbake these just a tad for chewiness, mine were done at 12 minutes (rather than the suggested 14). Leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then remove them to a wire rack to come to room temperature. But me, I like these cookies warm with milk… really hits the spot after a fidgety day 😉
