Cookies. Cookies. Cookies! I had an insane craving for chocolate last night, particularly a Crumbs devil dog cupcake. However, by the time I got home, Crumbs was closed and I was devastated. I went home empty handed and still suffering from my lack of chocolate treats. In my quest not to buy new ingredients…I decided to pull out what I had in the cabinet…which was surprisingly a lot. I found all the baking essentials…brown sugar, vanilla extract, flour, baking soda yada yada yada. But no chocolate chips!!! Wait! Halt!! I remembered there was a dark chocolate bar left over from my last craving attack! ALAS! COOKIES CAN BE MADE AFTER ALL!!!!
So I pulled out the Joy of Cooking and made their classic chocolate chip cookie. Instead of chips I used very thinly sliced dark chocolate…and I added two tablespoon of sweetened coco powder. Double chocolate…need I say more?
