Double Chocolate Cookies

Can I let you in on a little secret? There are many recipes I make and share with you that my family does not like. If I’m lucky, I’ll get a courtesy bite.  Nick and Tom have more adventuresome palates, but Nick is away at college and Tom has his own place. I’m left with the two picky eaters at home.

A blogger’s nightmare, but still, some recipes are huge hits. And these double chocolate cookies were one of them. I should have made a double batch of these ultimate, fudgy chocolate cookies…there’s a whopping ONE POUND of chocolate in this recipe. Plus some instant coffee powder…just enough to intensify the chocolate flavor without an obvious coffee flavor. Glossy and gorgeous…these were a glorified hit.

Fudgy Chocolate Cookies

This Rick Katz recipe started out like an ordinary chocolate cookie does…I melted some bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate in the microwave. But then it gets interesting. I combined the eggs and sugar in my stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and whipped for a full 10 minutes. The mixture was quite thick before I gently mixed in the flour, baking powder and salt.

The final step was to mix in 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate chunks…though I subbed semisweet chocolate as a matter of personal preference. This fudgy chocolate cookie dough had to be chilled for several hours, but can be parked in the fridge for up to 4 days…meaning you could make fresh baked chocolate cookies on four afternoons in a row! I like that idea. I think your family will, too!

A rich chocolate cookie intensified with coffee powder and two types of chocolate

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, cut into larger-than-chip-sized chunks; divided in half
  • 4 ounces (one stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons very finely ground coffee or instant coffee powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk to combine .

Separately, combine the butter with unsweetened chocolate and half of the bittersweet chocolate in a medium bowl.  Set the bowl over a medium pan of simmering water (be sure that the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl) and stir every-so-often with a rubber spatula until completely melted.  Remove from the heat and set aside.

In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the eggs, sugar, coffee, and vanilla.  Whisk on high speed for about 10 minutes, until the mixture becomes light-yellow in color, and leaves a ribbon on the surface when drizzled with a spoon.

Turn the mixer down to the lowest setting and add the melted chocolate.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl and use a rubber spatula to be sure that all the nooks of the bowl have been evenly mixed.  Add the flour mixture and remaining chocolate chunks and mix only until just combined.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover with plastic, and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Place the oven racks in the center-most position and preheat the oven to 350º. Line 2 baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.  Drop the cookies by the heaping-Tablespoonful onto the trays, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.

Bake 10-12 minutes.  They are ready when they look slightly underdone in the center.  Immediately transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.

  1. Anything with one pound of chocolate has to be good, and these cookies look exceptional!

  2. Wow, one pound of chocolate AND coffee? I’m in heaven! Can I have a glass of milk with that? 😉 Lovely post Liz.

  3. Yum! I have a nice strong cup of coffee, just need a couple cookies:@)

  4. Wow, these cookies look incredible! Love how glossy and rich they look and the double chocolate sounds glorious:)

  5. Seriously dangerous and scrumptious looking cookies, Liz! Semi-sweet over bittersweet chocolate gets my vote, too. Thanks for the keeper recipe!

  6. Trust me I have a picky eater at home too who doesn’t like some of my creations! I am certain though that he, as a genuine chocolate lover, would love to have a dozen of these cookies in his dish! I am talking about my 11 year old son!

  7. Chocolate cookies!? Yes please!!

  8. Love the gloss on these! I will try to do the smart thing and make a double batch of these and put them in the freezer. Well maybe one batch will go in the freezer!

  9. A pound of chocolate would get anyone’s heart racing, even those who say, “I don’t eat sweets.”

    Tonight John at an entire molten chocolate fondant – it was his birthday cake. I think he felt guilted into eating it. 🙂 (and well he should)

  10. ohhh ohhh ohhhhhh yes! I can’t imagine how a pound of chocolate couldn’t equal popularity for these cookies. SOOO chocolateyyyyyyy!!!

  11. Delightful cookies! And that glass of milk is just perfect with these chocolaty cookies!

  12. Double chocolate – sign me up! Would love to try these gorgeous cookies!

  13. I agree. These were outstanding. Some of the best chocolate cookies that I’ve ever had. I was going to share them with my co-workers but after tasting them we decided to keep them for ourselves 🙂

  14. Wow this is a killer chocolate cookie recipe, 1 pound in there? They do look irresistible, glad they got the thumbs up from the picky eaters.

  15. Oh I could go two or three of these right now, Liz. They look as delicious as my chunky triple choc cookies! Thanks for sharing xox

  16. I love the crackle effect on these cookies. They do look lovely and glossy and it’s great how the dough can be stored for a few days allowing freshly baked cookies for a few days in a row. I bet they smell terrific when they’re cooking. I’m guessing if you were to put out a cookbook containing all the recipes every member in your family was happy to eat, it would be a very thin book! xx

  17. Lizzy,
    These cookies look amazing. My hubby would love them. I’d be in a chocolate coma after eating them.

  19. Now – that’s a Chocolate Cookie!!!! Wow! These sound delicious…..

  21. oh i need like a dozen of these!

  22. I won’t resist chocolate, especially double chocolate recipes 🙂

  23. Sounds amazing!

  24. Love these cookies Lizzy always your cookies look amazing!:)

  25. Anything chocolaty, I am in. These look double the trouble for me.

  26. Liz, we really enjoyed these too – your cookies have a beautiful exterior, so shiny and delicious looking – I decided to bake them again for the first seasonal bazaar coming up on Saturday! I agree with you, this is a recipe that one should keep and make again!
    Have a great Thursday!

  27. My kids and hubby can be my best and worst critics when it comes to food. I never know if they will all like something or not. Now these I know will win them in one bite! We all adore chocolate.. and the more the better. 🙂

  28. Liz – when I think of double chocolate anything, you are the first person I think of 🙂
    These look lovely
