Whenever I have a hankering for cookies, there is a question that plagues me… And that question is; should I bake classic chocolate chip or double chocolate chip cookies??? Raise your hand if you too have ever been plagued by this decision? What can I say, sometimes a girl just can’t choose…
So when I can’t choose… I don’t – I marble.
What exactly is it about giant, crackly topped chocolate chip cookies that makes them so irresistible ? Is it simply because at the end of the day we eat with our eyes, and the crackles are just so pretty that we can’t help but want to bite into them as soon as humanly possibly? Or is it because we know that lurking just beneath that gorgeous crisp crackle is a soft, chewy cookie, studded with ooey, gooey chocolate and an overall flavour that tastes like childhood?
I think for me it would have to be the latter explanation; nostalgia never fails to capture my heart when it comes to homemade treats.
Cookies…. I mean honestly what can I say about them? They are classic, they are simple to make, they are ooey, gooey bites of deliciousness – Put simply, they are perfection in the palm of your hand.
Now although I can honestly say that I have never met a cookie I didn’t like, I do have to say that not all cookies are created equal. I will be the first to admit that I have had myself many homemade cookie recipe failures over the years of cookie trials in my quest to create the perfect recipe. You know the recipe I’m talking about right? That elusive homemade cookie recipe that we all search for? The recipe, that will never fail to create the perfect cookie every time?
Now everyone’s definition of the “perfect” cookie will vary based on opinion – but for me, the definition of the “perfect cookie” isas follows:
“The Perfect Cookie” One that is slightly crisp on the outside, while still being oh so gooey and chewy on the inside, with a lovely crinkly top, and lots of flavour.
So if the above description matches with your definition of what the “perfect cookie” should be, then my recipe for these Double Chocolate Coffee Addict Cookies is the one for you.
These cookies mean some serious business and I feel like the only way to convey just how amazing they are is to describe them as like the perfect love child of a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie… mhmmm.
These cookies have the most amazingly fudgy texture on the inside, with a light, crisp exterior. The addition of a hint of espresso powder to the mix, heightens the flavour of the chocolate to a whole new level, and the blend of milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate chunks just takes these cookies to a whole new level of delicious.
Hey – Happy Friday peeps!
We made it through another crazy week – Boo ya! We are seriously deserving of some delicious cookies don’t you think? But not just any cookies… not just your run of the mill chocolate chip cookies – although I have nothing against chocolate chip cookies, because sometimes a mean, homemade chocolate chip cookie is exactly what a tummy needs. But today is one of those celebratory Fridays where just a regular cookie isn’t gonna cut it.
So let’s take this whole celebratory cookie idea to the next level shall we? What say you to taking an awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe, and throwing in a little fall inspiration, a touch of spice, a lotttt of good quality dark chocolate and perhaps some toffee pieces for good measure??? Mmhhmmmm…. I’m thinking yes to alllll of that goodness.
So as you know I have been running a little bit of a pumpkin puree recipe marathon on the blog lately – and I have to apologize if you are not a pumpkin fan because it seems I just can’t help myself. I’ll admit that I have gone a little pumpkin crazy over the last couple of weeks, but I swear I have good reason so hear me out…
