Is it just me or does chocolate (lots of chocolate) sound like a good idea. Right now.
Yeah, I go to the grocery store a lot.
I mean, how many boxes of chocolate are consumed this time of year due to Valentines day? There are seriously an overwhelming amount of them at the store right now.
I'm not complaining. But I'm just saying, it's hard for a girl not to want chocolate after being faced with that.
But buying a box for yourself… well, I'm not going to pretend I haven't done it. Or that I won't do it later this week. But at least I don't buy one every time I feel like it.
Because that would be crazy, since I, like, ALWAYS want one. It's a heart shaped box of chocolate, who wouldn't want that?
I made some giant double chocolate cookies instead. I'm not sure how this is a solution. But it is.
Ingredients: 2 sticks butter (softened), 1 1/4 cup sugar, 2 large eggs, 1/3 cup dutch processed cocoa, 2 1/4 cups flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
And you will definitely want some milk to drink with this. Don't even bother baking these if you don't have milk. Seriously.
Cream together butter and sugar. Stir in eggs, one at a time. Then stir in cocoa powder until well blended. Add flour, salt and baking powder until batter is well combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
Using your hands, divide batter into 10-12 even pieces. Roll into a ball then flatten slightly. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or a baking stone. Bake at 350 F for 16-20 minutes.
