This double chocolate cookie is deceiving in the absolute best way possible. It’s shaped like a cookie, it bakes like a cookie, but it sure tastes a heck of a lot like a brownie. That’s the incredible thing about this recipe — you get the simplicity and satisfaction of a warm cookie, but the irresistible texture and flavor of a rich, fudge-y brownie.
As these bake, the top begins to crackle, giving them a beautiful finish. If the timer goes off and you’re not quite sure if they’re done, I say pull them out — they’ll bake a little more out of the oven, and the just-barely-done moistness is to die for.
I call these double chocolate cookies because there is chocolate melted into the batter as well as chocolate chips folded in. Need I say more?
