Recipe Swap: Ultimate Chocolate Cookie

Ultimate Chocolate CookieIt's one of my most favorite themes this week for the recipe swap: dessert! I received Dough See Dough's Ulimate Chocolate Cookies in the swap.  Miss F was most excited to help make these cookies and was even more excited to take them in her lunchbox to school.  I was thrilled to get cookies because they are one of my most favorite desserts.  These cookies are completely amazing, full of rich chocolate flavor.  They are quite decadent, which makes for a perfect dessert.  Thanks to Taste of Home Cooking for hosting the dessert swap.
Ultimate Chocolate Cookie

1 cup all purpose flour
¼ cup dutch-process cocoa powder
¼ cup dark cocoa powder (like Hershey’s Special Dark)
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 ½ cups bittersweet chocolate chips, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 ¼ cup sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Whisk together flour, cocoa powders, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat, stirring frequently. Stir in ½ cup of bittersweet chocolate chips until melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat eggs and sugar at medium speed until light yellow in color, about 3 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add in chocolate mixture slowly, beating until well combined. Add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Fold in 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips and 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips by hand.

Scoop batter using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, placing 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 13 minutes, until outsides are set but center is still soft. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
