Decadent Chocolate Mini Cookies

Happy friday!

Another one of those keeper recipes. This is right up the amazing alley, along with the chocolate lava cakes and the rolo cookies!! My husband is quite in love with me these days, and the kids are crying because they want more and I won't let

Adapted from key ingredient
Ingredients: (I halved the recipe the first time I made them, yes, I did 1-1/2 eggs)

  • 10 ounces (1-1/4 cup) semi sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) unsweetened chocolate, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. In a microwave safe bowl, put the chocolate and butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. Mix, then repeat until the chocolate is just melted (it took me 3 - 30 second intervals)
  2. Let it cool a little (couple minutes), then whisk in the eggs and sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Cover and place in the fridge to cool for about an hour (or overnight).
  3. Set your over to 350 degrees. Let the dough sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a 'silpat' mat. Roll small tablespoon balls and place 20 per baking sheet (4x5) about 1 inch apart.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes (check them tho), then let them cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before picking one up or they may melt in your hands.
Mmmm, enjoy with a nice glass of milk (or three).
