If you are a chocoholic like I am, I have the perfect cookie for you! I found this delectable little treat over at Tracy’s Culinary Adventures and it is a winner. With this much chocolate and butter, you just can’t go wrong. One little word of warning…this recipe makes a LOT of cookies so you may want to find some people to share these with. Trust me.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
20 oz. (567 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 1/4 cups sugar
6 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare two cookie sheets. Sift the first 4 ingredients together and set aside. Melt the semi-sweet chips in the microwave at 50% percent power for 45 second increments until the chips are soft enough to melt when stirred.
Look at that beautiful chocolate goodness. Mmmm.
Cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until well combined, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating to incorporate before adding the next. Increase the mixer to medium-high and beat for 2 minutes. Add the melted chocolate and vanilla and beat just until incorporated. Add the dry ingredients and the mini chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop, portion out the dough on the cookie sheets. I put about 14 cookies on each sheet. Cook one at a time for 12-14 minutes. I let the first sheet cool for a few minutes while the second sheet cooks. Then just reload and put the sheet back in the oven.
