Double Fudge Cookies For Chocoholic Lovers ONLY Cookie Recipe

Calling all Chocoholics this is the one for you! Ooey Gooey rich chocolate overload!
Double Chocolate Cookies, my favorite recipe for a chocolate cookie by far...I have tried many and always come back to this one.



Warm right out of the oven, I just love that gooey chocolate


The chocolate and almond flavor are just a perfect pairing~


You can drop or roll these. I roll them, then flatten a little with the palm of my hand.



We love macadamia nuts in these cookies, but you can put any kind of nuts you like or none.





I love chocolate, milk, dark, bitter sweet, have tried them all, and a little bit of each is the best. But you decide what your preference is.



2 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2/3 cup unsweet cocoa powder
1 large bag 12 oz chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1 cup butter
2 large eggs (at room temperature)
1 cup macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, or your favorite kind coarsely chopped optional
Preheat oven to 350
In a large bowl cream butter, sugar, eggs, and extracts. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls or roll into round balls, flatten a little with the palm of your hand then onto ungreased cookie sheets, sprinkle with sugar crystals or regular sugar. Bake at 350 8 minutes. Cool.

Oh my Claudia! Hey, that's sounds kind of like 'Oh my Gosh', no? Like I could start saying that and have other people saying it too when they're amazed (smile).
Obviously, I think these look delicious!

These look terrific. But I have to say that the one thing that really grabbed me with the sprinkle of coarse sugar on top. I love that added crunch when you bit into the cookie.

Definitely a choco-holic and I just love that shot with the gooey middle. I figure with the nuts in the cookie, you can call it a 'meal', right? These are amazing.

Chocoholic heaven!!

JillyAn said...

these are making my stomach growl! Oh my what a great looking cookie!!!!

TheChocolatePriestess said...

I agree -- a little of each type of chocolate is always best.

That way you can either please every chocolate lover (you better make more cookies!) or annoy every other chocolate lover (leaving more cookies for yourself).

Maybe it is just me but shouldn't a true chocoholic love all types of chocolate? Thus you better make a double or triple batch.
