I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had a crazy busy weekend, but it was lots of fun. It involved a Denver Nuggets basketball game, an indoor waterpark, great friends, and lots of food and candy!
Today is Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month I was assigned PheMOMenon. This site has so many great recipes. She is the mom to 2 boys, and one little girl. How she keeps up with it all is amazing. She appears to have a chocolate addiction, just like me!
When I saw these cookies, I knew instantly this is what I was going to make. We were sent our assignments on Tuesday night. I made these on Friday morning. My 6 year old started spring break that Friday, so he helped me measure everything out. The recipe makes only 12 cookies, which I love (but you could easily double the recipe). They are over the top chocolate-y, and so good! It is almost like a brownie in cookie form. I know these will be made again in my house!
Outrageous Chocolate Cookies
10 ounces semisweet chocolate chunks
2 Tbls butter
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup + 1 Tbls brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 4 ounces of chocolate and butter together in the microwave, checking ever 20 seconds. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder salt, set aside.
In bowl for an electric mixer beat egg, brown sugar and vanilla together on high speed until light and flurry. Beat in melted chocolate over low speed. Add the flour mixtures, and stir until just combined. Fold in the remaining chocolate chunks. Spool tablespoons of dough onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until shiny and crackly, but the centers are still soft. You do not want to over bake them! Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
