My baking experiment #87 – ginormous chocolate cookie

When the weather is cold & rainy like this weekend, i like to treat myself to something rich & decadent to cheer myself up. So i decided to bake a chocolate cookie. Not just any chocolate cookie, but a ginormous chocolate cookie:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp beaten egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line cookie sheet with parchment.
  2. In a bowl, mix softened butter and sugars together with fork until creamed. Mix in egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour dry ingredients into wet and mix to combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Place dough in center of baking sheet and mold into tall ball using spoon. Bake 14-16 minutes. Cookie will appear very soft but will firm up as it cools. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.

OMG this giant cookie is super yummy! It’s so huge and packed with chocolatey goodness. The texture is somewhere between a cookie & a cake: crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The chocolate flavor is intense, as large as its size. It’s the perfect dessert for a cold rainy evening (or any evening)! πŸ™‚
