Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Cookies

These cookies were scrumptious.  This recipe was published on Dessert First, named World Peace Cookies because they supposedly could spread world peace, they’re that good.  (Sorry, for the run-on, incorrect grammar, etc).  They were good, but not that good.  I’m not sure any dessert is that good, but let me know if you find something.  We should be willing to try anything.

These peaceful cookies are just chocolate cookies with chocolate chunks (evidenced from the post title).

Sift the flour, cocoa, and baking soda in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, beat the butter until creamy.  Add the sugars, salt, and vanilla and beat for a few minutes.  Add flour mixture, and mix until just incorporated.  Overbeating makes for bad cookies.

Divide the dough in half.  Press each half into a log with a 1 1/2 in. diameter.  I didn’t divide mine in half, and just made one long log.  Whatever, you wish.

Wrap the logs in plastic wrap.  Put in the fridge for at least 1 hour or for up to 3 days.  I put mine in the freezer for 30 minutes because I was in a time crunch.  You can also freeze the dough (make sure it’s tightly wrapped) for up to 3 months.

Preheat the oven to 325˚F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon mats.  Cut the logs into 1/2 in. thick rounds.  The logs will far apart, just piece them back together.  Put the cookies on the sheet.  Here they are just after they went into the oven.    

Bake for 12 minutes.  They will look undone, but they will continue cooking on the hot baking sheet.  Bake too long, and they will be crunchy.  Bake for 12 minutes and they will be soft and chewy.  Eat warm or after they cool.

Here is the deliciousness up close.

I took these to a party and left one lonely cookie for my dad.  Here’s the container for my party, and the cookie for my dad.  Don’t feel bad for him.  He’s on a diet, so I keep him in check.

Here are some pictures of my friends enjoying the delicious cookies.  Thanks, Maggie and Scott.

These cookies were chocolately, soft, and delicious.
