Food 52’s Deep Chocolate Cookies with Milk Chocolate Chips

Ingredients:

Makes 36

  • 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons Natural (not Dutch processed) cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cups milk chocolate chips

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In the microwave, nuke the semi-sweet chocolate chips until just barely melted, stirring to melt the last few chips. Set aside to come to room temperature.
  • Cream the butter with the sugar and molasses until lightened and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and cream again.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Stir into the butter mixture just until all the flour is incorporated (the dough will be pretty tough). Stir in the milk chocolate chips.
  • Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 8 minutes, then leave on the parchment to cool at least 10 minutes before eating.
