Who can believe it's the last week of Bake 52?!! I learned this year that time flies when you're baking. ;) I've had so much fun baking new recipes, learning new things, tricks and techniques and making new friends. Thanks to all my baking friends who participated this year, whether it was baking with me every week or just reading and following along.
We have decided to start a dinner group for 2013. We will be posting twice a month for our new group starting the 2nd Wednesday in January. So be ready for that and if you want to join us, let me know!
It's hard to tell from the pictures exactly how big these cookies are. They're about 3.5 inches in diameter and plenty if each person only has one cookie! Not to mention they are pretty rich. It's a good thing for me because I LOVE chocolate but I guess it's not for everyone. (Not that I understand that kind of thinking) These were the perfect cookie, chewy on the outside, soft in the center and stuffed with more chocolate than anyone thought was possible. You can opt to leave out the chocolate chips if you are scared about these amounts of chocolate but I don't scare easily. I think these cookies would also be great to stuff things inside of-like rolos, peanut butter cups, oreos, whatever.
I didn't have parchment paper so I just baked the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet and it worked out wonderfully. I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips for the melted chocolate and it seemed to work well too.
All in all, I think these cookies were great. They go really well with a glass of milk. ;) If you are a choco-holic, you should give them a try!
Janet was our host for the week, you can get the recipe at her blog. Thanks for hosting this week Janet, and picking a great recipe.
