Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

I am somewhat of a chocoholic and there are days I crave nothing more than a good dose of chocolate.  My love of chocolate, along with my love for baking, has led me to search for the most chocolaty recipes out there.  These Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies definitely fall into that category!  They are the perfect combination of fudgy and chewy and their dark cocoa flavor is enhanced with coffee and chocolate chips.

 



 

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Cookies

 

  1. Cream the butter and sugar sufficiently:  Creaming the butter and sugar until lighter in colour and fluffy maximizes the amount of trapped air within the butterfat.  This increases the leavening of the cookies during baking, resulting in a lighter texture.
  2. Chill the dough overnight: Chilling the dough overnight allows the flavours to blend and the dough to firm up.  This will result in tastier cookies that have good height and won’t spread too much during baking.  
  3. Do not over-bake: Baking these cookies for too long will cause them to become hard.  Remove the cookies from the oven as soon as they are set on top.
  4. The size of the cookies will change the baking time: smaller cookies will have a shorter baking time while larger cookies will have a longer baking time.  The stated baking time of 11 minutes is for reference only.  Keep checking your cookies during baking to determine when they are done.  

 

 

Recipe Q & A

 

Q:  Why are my cookies hard?

A:  The cookies can become hard if they are over-baked or if the dough is over-mixed after the flour has been added because of gluten development.  To avoid this, bake the cookies only until they are set on top, and mix the dough on low speed and only for a short time after the flour has been added.  

Q:  The bottom of my cookies are getting too dark during baking.  How do I prevent this?

A:  You can prevent cookies from becoming too dark on the bottom during baking by doubling up the baking pans.  This means placing the baking pan with your unbaked cookies on top of a baking sheet and then baking the cookies.  Doing this allows the heat to dissipate and be less intense at the bottom of the pan resulting in less browning.
