Chocolate Fudge Cookies
These cookies are something that my son likes to make as the smell from the chocolate alone makes him happy. The cookies themselves are not as sweet as something you might buy commercially but its sweetness is very subtle. I also like the texture as it’s not as gooey as some other chocolate fudge cookies that I have had in the past which is nice. I prefer to not include nuts in my cookies but if you wish you can do so with this recipe so I will include directions to add whichever nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds) that you prefer. Cookies are always going to be the best the day they are baked but these can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. You should end up with approximately 30 cookies.
1 ¼ cups flour
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 ½ oz. unsalted butter
7 oz. dark chocolate chips
1 Tbl dark corn syrup
1 Tbl honey
1 cup nuts (walnuts, almonds or pecans) if desired
1: Sift the flour into a large bowl. Then add the semi-sweet chocolate chips, nuts (if desired) and make a well in the middle of the mixture.
2: Combine the butter and the dark chocolate chips in a small saucepan for about 5 minutes until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove the pan from the heat.
3: In a small bowl beat 2 eggs and add them along with the dark syrup and honey to the chocolate mixture. Mix well. Then pour the chocolate mixture into the large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir with a large spoon until combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge for 1 hr.
4: After the hr is up, preheat the oven to 350 degree. Take 2 baking pans and lightly grease them before lining them with baking paper. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator. Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture at a time into a ball. Arrange the balls on the baking pans and place into the oven where they will cook for 12 minutes. Remove and place them on a rack to cool completely.
When done, these cookies will have a fudge like texture that are perfect to add additional ingredients too before serving In the pictures I took , we sprinkled them with powdered sugar but you can also coat them with granulated sugar. Another option is to take the mix and bake it in a cookie tin. Then when finished, you can add your favorite chocolate frosting before cutting into slices to serve. This is actually my son’s favored method of making this recipe. Either way you can’t go wrong. I hope you enjoy these cookies and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
