Outrageous Chocolate Cookies for Cookie Carnival

It’s time for Cookie Carnival again,  a monthly cookie baking group I joined last month.  This month’s chosen cookie is Martha Stewart's Outrageous Chocolate Cookies.  If you’re looking for an easy cookie that is super chocolaty, this could just be it.  The cookies are rich and chewy.  They aren’t crispy and shouldn’t be.  I’d say these are the kind of cookie that are brownies in cookie form.  The recipe says to use a semi sweet chocolate.  I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips and I actually thought the cookies could be a little sweeter, so next time I’d use just a regular semi sweet chocolate.  Super good cookie though!

I think the recipe made about 4 dozen cookies.

I didn’t take very many pictures of these cookies, so I didn’t have much to choose from.

These look beautiful! I made this recipe once and used 70% chunks, which kind of ruined them. Since the batter itself isn't too sweet, the extra dark chocolate made the cookies taste bitter. I agree that semi sweet chips are the way to go with this recipe.
