Food You Can Eat: Chocolate Cookies

Chocoholic trigger warning.

These are rich and soft – too, too yummy. I was sure that I had already shared this recipe, but I searched the site and didn’t find it – so if this is a repeat, apologies – but it is still worth making!

Melt 1 cup semisweet chocolate bits (of two total required cups). Beat 2 tablespoons butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 egg whites, and 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla together, and stir into the melted chocolate.

Whisk in 1 and 1/2 cups flour, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 cup of water. Stir in the remaining 1 cup of chocolate bits. Pop the bowl into the refrigerator for about two hours.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Coat your baking sheets lightly with oil or cooking spray. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, roll the balls into 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar mixed with two teaspoons salt, and set them 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Try to resist them as they cool!

  1. I am totally making these–just as soon as I finish plowing through my grandmother’s recipes.

  2. Those do look good. How many does this make, more or less?

    • There can never be too many, from the look of them! I think I would double this recipe and polish them off over the course of…three hours? A day?

    • 3 to 4 dozen depending on ball size and then number scarfed whilst cooling…

  3. Damn, those look delicious!
