Where were these my whole life?! Double Chocolate makes everything better even being trapped in my house for the last few days from this brutal Chicago cold. I don’t know about you, but when its cold out; I have a tendency to bake. I was craving something rich, indulgent, and not so healthy. They were so good that I ate 2! If anyone knows me, that’s a big deal because I generally don’t eat much sweets. Plus, I told myself not to have more than half a piece but these were too addicting. You win some, you lose some! I hope you give these cookies a try. I know they will be a winner in your household too!
Servings: about 24 cookies
Total Time: approx. 25 min
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp Nescafe or instant coffee granules
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 egg + 1 egg white
1 1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 stick room temp. butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Beat together the butter, sugars, and eggs till creamy. I used my kitchen aid mixer with the paddle attachment but you can use a spatula and a bowl.
Then add the vanilla and mix.
Add the baking soda, salt, Nescafe, cocoa powder, and flour. Mix together.
Add in the chocolate chips and mix together again.
Prepare a baking pan with parchment paper to avoid sticking or use a silicone mat.
Scoop the cookie dough leaving 2 inches between them.
Place the cookie tray in the fridge for 2-5 min. This helps a cookie hold its shape when baking.
Then bake for 12-15 minutes. If you are dividing these cookies into 2 trays then alternative the trays on the racks accordingly. The bottom tray moves up half way into the baking process and the top tray moves down half way. This will ensure even baking.
Allow to cool slightly. Enjoy warm!
