Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Talk about food porn!! These cookies taste like brownies. Very chewy and indulgent. I did copy the recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, but I usually don't follow it all the time. The chocolate chips are my own idea. This is a tricky and messy recipe, but it is totally worth it. I have spent hours cleaning up after making these, because the chocolate will go all over the place. 

Recipe makes 12+ cookies depending on size
Calories per cookie: 200

  • 10 oz of chocolate or chocolate chips-> this is the chocolate that you will melt. 
  • 4 oz of chocolate chips 
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar + 2 tablespoons 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2/3 cup of flour 
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt 
  • Heat the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt the chocolate until it is thoroughly melted on medium heat. 
  • Mix the eggs, vanilla and brown sugar with an electric mixer. 
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. 
  • Add the chocolate mixture to the eggs, vanilla and brown sugar and mix. 
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt into the whole mixture and make sure that everything is smooth and mixed well. 
  • Add the extra chocolate chips. 
  • Put the cookie dough into the fridge for about five minutes and spoon it out onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. Flatten the cookies out a little. They will puff up in the oven. 
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes at 325 degrees.
