Warning: Chocolate lovers only!!! These thick and chewy soft batch double chocolate fudge cookies are melt-in-your-mouth amazing and full of intense chocolate fudge flavor!
Exactly two weeks ago I posted a link to my Coconut Oil Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars on Instagram. One of my sweet readers (Hi, Lauren!) commented on the post requesting a recipe for double chocolate cookies because her little boys love them, and well, I just couldn’t say no! It’s pretty easy to convince me to get in the kitchen and bake a batch of cookies any day… and when you ask nicely, I get on it! So Lauren, these double chocolate fudge cookies are for you… and every other chocolate lover out there.
These cookies are like pure chocolate fudge!!! I based the dough off my aunt taties famous “death by chocolate cookies“, and after a few twists and tweaks, scored big! I ended up scaling down the butter to just two tablespoons! And scaling the chocolate quantity up to two full cups PLUS cocoa powder! Like I said in the beginning, these cookies truly are for chocolate lovers only 😉
Tips and Tricks for Recipe Success:
- You’ll preheat your oven to 325 degrees (F), but once you pop the cookies in the oven, you’re going to immediately crank that dial down to 300! The low, longer baking time gives these cookies their crackly shell and gooey fudge interior.
- These cookies must – I repeat – MUST cool completely on the tray. I usually leave the room for a good hour before I even think about sneaking them off the tray.
- Because these cookies are so chocolate heavy, I added a good pinch of salt and vanilla the the dough. Please don’t skip these two ingredients – they make it work.
- Any chocolate chip brand will do. I know a lot of recipes say the better the chocolate; the better the results (and that is true, in a way…), but I’ve made these with everything from Godiva to Hershey’s and they all were decadent and worthy in their own way.
Final words of advice… make sure you have a milk chaser ready to pair with a plate of these cookies, and go get baking now 😉 xoxo
