Double Chocolate Cookies

If you’re looking for a soft, chewy, fudgy, chocolatey, cookie – look no futher! This recipe comes from Mike’s cousin and as soon as I tasted them I knew I needed to make them. I wasted no time in asking for the recipe and making them as birthday treats for a coworker. Everyone loved them and I overheard one woman walking out the kitchen with a cookie in her hand saying “These cookies are so good.” Comments like that always make me smile 🙂

These truly are some of the fudgiest chocolate cookies I’ve ever tasted. Be careful not to overbake them, as that will make them a little cake-ier. I erred on the side of slightly underbaking them and they were perfect.
