Two Huge Double Chocolate Cookies


  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 very huge cookies 1x

Description

Just two huge double chocolate cookies to make you happy! Heavy and dense, fudgy and dark, deliciously thick, and sparkled with sugar. These are so good.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 tablespoons butter, very soft (see photos)
  • 5 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons flour (37 grams, see note 1)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder (15 grams, see note 2)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 34 tablespoons chocolate chips or chunks
  • granulated sugar for rolling

Instructions

  1. Soften the Butter: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Soften the butter for about 10 seconds in the microwave – the ideal is slightly melted but not all the way, like what’s in the picture.
  2. Mix the Dough: Add brown sugar; stir to combine. Add egg yolk and vanilla; stir to combine. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; stir to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips
  3. Make the Dough Balls: Form the dough into two huge balls (reserving a bit of cookie dough for tasting, obviously) and roll each of them in granulated sugar.
  4. Bake: Transfer the dough balls to a baking sheet – they may feel slightly heavy and/or loose which is normal. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them rest on the pan for another 10 minutes to set up.
  5. Eat: Enjoy your moment of bliss!

Notes

Note 1 on Flour and Measuring: I go for about 52 grams of my dry ingredients (37 for flour, 15 for cocoa powder). If you don’t have a scale, no problem – I measure my scooping the tablespoon into the flour and leveling it gently with a knife. 

Note 2 on Cocoa Powder Types: You can use dark cocoa powder OR regular cocoa powder. The top two images in this post show what the cookies look like with dark cocoa powder – they are, obviously, darker, and the chocolate chips will look lighter in comparison. The bottom set of photos in the steps section shows what the cookies look like with regular cocoa powder.

Note 3 on Chocolate Chips: These also work with white chocolate chips and they’re delicious! When I use the white chocolate chips, I skip the sugar rolling step.
