Have I got some great super-chocolaty, full-of-deep-dark-goodness cookies for you today for the continuation of 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies, which started last week!
I saw these cookies on my friend, Anna’s blog, which she posted a couple days ago and their extreme chocolaty look and description had me hook, line and sinker ready to make them. I thought that they must be shared with you today and I think they would be a great addition to any holiday occasion. These are not for the faint of heart when it comes to chocolate. They are made with some unsweetened chocolate, lots of bittersweet chocolate and that’s just the cookie dough—MORE chocolate is added to that with 10 ounces of chocolate chips!
Chocolate Mudslides, by Anna, Cookie Madness, adapted slightly by Katrina, Baking and Boys!
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cake flour (1 1/4 ounce)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 3/4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I used a 60% dark chocolate)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3-4 large eggs (weigh to make 6 ounces) Mine took almost 4 eggs
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (8 ounces)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
10 ounces semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
In a small mixing bowl, stir together cake flour, baking powder and salt.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine the unsweetened chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and the butter. Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until melted, combine and smooth. Let cool slightly.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs until light. Beat in the sugar and the vanilla. Add the melted chocolate and once it is all incorporated, add the flour mixture and fold in with a spatula just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Chill the batter/dough for one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment. Scoop mounds of dough onto the baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 32 cookies.
I know a certain Dad who will probably love these when he comes to visit next week! I will freeze a bunch of them and then warm them in the oven for a few minutes to make them their gooey mudslide deliciousness.
