In terms of my cookie recipes, these are the holies of holies. Four kinds of chocolate, not counting the dark cocoa powder, which makes five. Incredibly rich, absolutely chocolately, and a great way to cap off a long day.
Quintuple Chocolate Cookies (aka Chocolategasm cookies)
Makes 22 cookies
- 2 sticks butter (1 c)
- 1.75 c white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1.5 t vanilla
- .75 c extra dark cocoa pwoder
- pinch cinnamon
- pinch salt
- 2.5 c flour
- 2.5 t baking powder
- 1 bag Rolos
- 3 bars Ghiradelli baking chocolate (white choc, bittersweet choc, and semi-sweet chocolate))
Take your baking chocolate bars and chop them into small pieces, throwing it in a bag and into the freezer for one hour minimum.
Then, cream together your butter and sugar, and add the vanilla and eggs, followed by the dry ingredients (baking powder, cocoa powder, flour, spices), mixing until you have a coherent dough. Then, slowly fold in your chocolate bits and Rolos.
Preheat your oven to 375, and roll your dough into small balls. Cook for approximately 15 minutes, and enjoy the quintuple chocolate goodness!
They are a bit sticky, so be sure to watch that as you’re rolling out the dough and baking them, as the dough can stick and get a bit melty. But man, these are all kinds of worth it.
