The other day, Ellie of Kitchen Wench posted about these "Chocoholic Cookies" Now, being a chocoholic, this peaked my interest.
I looked over the recipe, it seemed fairly simple, so I rounded up the ingredients and gave it a shot.
The only difficult part about this recipe was beating everything by hand. I know, I could have used an electric mixer, but I was a little too lazy to take the mixer out..Oh well.
NOTES: First off, I cut the recipe in half--I don't have a big oven and there are only the 2 of us.
Next, I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chips for melting and as chips and added a handful of trailmix which consisted of dried cranberries, almonds and cashews--I smashed the almonds and cashews with my garlic smasher and chopped the cranberries.
The halved recipe yielded about 12 cookies, but I guess it would depend on what you use to scoop the dough.
These cookies are rich and chocolate-y! And the chocolate aroma that permeates the whole room is heavenly.
Thanks for sharing this recipe, Ellie!
