The BEST Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies. Ever. (imho)


Have you ever noticed that different people like different chocolate experiences?  Some peeps only like a specific type of chocolate such as dark or milk or semisweet.  Some prefer chocolate to be combined with other ingredients like fruit or nuts and, to others, anything other that pure, plain chocolate is tantamount to a mortal sin.  Oh, we human beings can be so fussy! (Me especially, LOL!)  Well, here’s a cookie that is perfect for those of you ( and me too!) that want a deep, dark, intense, chocolate experience.  These are Good.  Really Good. I mean eat the entire very rich batch Good![/donotprint]

By September 6, 2011



1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick spray.
2. Melt 1 cup chocolate chips in glass bowl in microwave, stirring twice, about 2 minutes. Cool slightly.
3. Using electric mixer, beat whites in large bowl to soft peaks. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar. Continue beating until mixture resembles soft marshmallow creme.
4. Whisk 1 cup sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt in medium bowl to blend.
5. On low speed, beat dry ingredients into meringue. Stir in lukewarm chocolate and 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dough will become very stiff).
6. Place 1/2 cup sugar in bowl. Roll 1 rounded tablespoon dough into ball; roll in sugar, coating thickly. Place on prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and tops crack, about 10 minutes. Cool on sheets on rack 10 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack.

    I'll have to make them and try them to call them the best, but they certainly do look like stiff competition!

    Best of anything is so subjective isn't it? I just made what I think are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had…but I'm sure some would prefer no nuts, or darker chocolate. So I figure the ONLY person I can really mean that for is me and if someone else loves something I do? Yay!

    I know there look and sound great and that's a very good thing. 🙂

  18. Abi

    These are outstanding! I had tried some other cookies from various websites promising “amazing” and “delicious” cookies, only to be disappointed with very pedestrian results. These melt in your mouth and are UBER chocolatey! Wonderful for the Christmas cookie tray.
