Well, to be honest, my favorite chocolate cookies any time of the year.
In my recipe box, this is the best fudgey, rich, delicious chocolate cookie recipe I have. It’s a very dense cookie that I think is made all the better by using Dark Chocolate Cocoa (though you can always use regular). I originally made these last year as giant chocolate chocolate chip cookies inspired by Levain Bakery’s cookies, and have since used this recipe and mixed it up with stirring in different items.
For these cookies I used Nestle Toll House Holiday Morsels.
This recipe is a bit unique in that you start with COLD butter, only use one kind of sugar and do not add vanilla. And it’s a THICK dough. If you want to make them I would definitely recommend checking out my original post to see the photos that I took while making the recipe or my Double Chocolate Candy Cane Cookie version of the recipe.
These are a cookie that are best enjoyed the day you make them or the day after. Because they are so rich, dense and fudgey they loose some of what makes them so great by drying out a bit if you give them a few days. If you want to make these ahead of time for something, I would probably put them in the freezer immediately after they have cooled from baking.
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy!
