Before I get to the requests that are rolling in for my 30 days of chocolate campaign for Valentine’s Day, I thought I would fulfill my own request first. I can’t stop thinking about chocolate cookies. And not just any chocolate cookie—a soft, chewy cookie chock full of melting chocolate chunks. Have you noticed that chocolate chips don’t melt very much in the oven? That’s why I used chocolate chunks for these cookies. The gooey factor was of high importance for my perfect chocolate cookies.
I also tipped in some espresso powder because I always love the way it makes the chocolate taste richer and fuller. If you get a chance in life to be richer and fuller, you should always take that chance. That said, it’s entirely optional. Don’t forgo the cookies if that’s the only ingredient you’re lacking. But also, um, don’t substitute coffee grounds. Definitely not the same.
I made Chocolate Ginger cookies a few years back that I still crave on a regular basis, but today is all about chocolate. Nothing but the chocolate. In all of its glory.
I hope these perfect little two-bite chocolate cookies make all of your chocolate dreams come true.
Please, keep your requests rolling in for chocolate desserts for Valentine's Day! I'm loving all the emails and comments with your ideas. Thanks so much! I can't wait to get to work!
