I have hardly missed any recipes in our cooking adventures…I think two actually. One was our last one, the pumpernickel bread…so many ingredients that I didn’t have on hand and no one here particularly likes pumpernickel. So I waited for the chocolate cookies. 🙂
I will be curious to see what other bakers thought of this recipe. I had high hopes…especially after the success of the Danish Braid. People are still talking about that one! I for one am a serious chocolate lover and just can’t understand when people say they don’t care for chocolate…what?? how can that be! That is why it is SO weird to me, that two of our chocolate recipes haven’t met the mark with me or the family.
These double chocolate cookies reminded me ALOT of the Best Ever Brownies we baked which we thought were just over the top with chocolate. I was wanting them to be so delicious…even burned my mouth trying them as they came out of the oven…but they were so, so rich. I don’t think I have said that about a chocolate dessert other than the brownies. My family and tasters had the same reaction. Some thought they were better with some ice cream and others thought they were better coming out of the freezer. I actually thought they were better frozen too….seemed to calm down the intense chocolate.
I can’t say they were bad, they got eaten, but I don’t see myself using this recipe again…just too over the top for some reason.
