These rich, Chewy Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies are soft chocolate cookies loaded with chocolate chunks – they are a true chocolate lovers dream!
Hey! hey guys, new year, new goals and mine is to bring you a couple of new recipes each month. Last year after the twins were born I kind of took a step back and stopped posting, sorry about that but I am still getting the hang of four kids. My sweet friend Julie mentioned a fun cooking club she hosts and I thought it would be the perfect ease back into the blogging routine. Every month members of the group share recipes featuring one ingredient as the focus of the recipe. January just happens to be chocolate and well you know…
I love chocolate! But then what self respecting woman doesn’t, am I right? No offense if you don’t, but what is wrong with you? Admittedly the only time I don’t like chocolate is while I’m pregnant, so thank goodness those days are behind me! Cake, brownies, ice cream and of course cookies, I want them all when they come in the chocolate variety.
Last month I baked up these tasty double chocolate chunk cookies to share with my kids teachers for the holidays. They were a smashing success and I ate a few too many myself. I finally boxed up the last half dozen and mailed them off to my mom to get them away from my reach, they are that addicting. These cookies are perfect for sharing any time of year, so if you love soft cookies loaded with chocolate flavor then these cookies they are it. I hope you’ll enjoy them too, happy baking!
