Dangerously Delicious Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

It’s my first time baking in my brand new kitchen!!

I came home from running errands and smelled the aroma of my roommate’s French Vanilla coffee…so delicious!  I was instantly in the mood for baking :)

This recipe is said to be a ‘copycat’ of one of the cookies made at NYC’s Levain Bakery.  I have yet to go there but I’ve heard great things about it (and after trying this recipe I HAVE to check it out ASAP!)

Warning: These cookies are seriously dangerous! (I already ate 3…)

This recipe was inspired by Love From the Oven.

 

Recipe: Dangerously Delicious Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Summary: DANGEROUSLY yummy! These double chocolate chunk cookies are rich, chocolaty, delicious, and won’t last 1 day!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter (2 sticks cut into cubes)
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs (at room temp)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (the darker the better!)
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp french vanilla coffee (I used Dunkin’ Donuts)
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunks (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup crushed dry roasted peanuts (optional)
  • A glass of milk (NOT OPTIONAL)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well.

    As you can see, I don't have an electric mixer yet - so I'm doing it the old fashioned way!

  4. Add in cocoa powder and coffee. Combine well.

    French Vanilla Dunkin' Donuts coffee - my secret ingredient!!

  5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda.
  6. Gradually add your dry flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing in between increments – the batter will be really thick!
  7. Stir in chocolate chunks with a spoon. You can use your hands to knead the dough to make sure all of the ingredients are combined.
  8. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper (I didn’t have any at the moment, but using it makes clean up a lot easier!)
  9. Grab a handful of the chocolaty dough and make a large disk.
  10. Top with crushed dry roasted peanuts if you wish.
  11. Bake these dangerous cookies in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the tops are baked through.
  12. Let cool.
  13. Enjoy with a tall glass of MILK. You’re gonna need it :)
