It's a dangerous thing to have an entire batch of cookies around the house when it's just you and one roommate. First you justify one right out of the oven, ignoring the fact that it's really too hot to enjoy. Then you decide you need to test one out when it's warm, since that's prime cookie eating time. Then you decide you might as well have one that's room temperature because all cookies taste at least decent right out of the oven and you need to test out whether you actually like them. Next thing you know you're at three cookies in a matter of hours. Such is life.

That's why sometimes you just need to make one, giant cookie. That and the fact that who doesn't love a giant, amazing double chocolate cookie. Heaven is full of these cookies (obviously there are multiple giant cookies in heaven...and none of them have calories). It's incredibly rich and the massive amount of chocolate chips mixed with the brownie-like batter makes the cookie super gooey. I might have to make one of these every weekend because I inevitably need a quick chocolate fix every weekend. Apparently you can make four smaller cookies with this recipe as well. Four mini cookies or one giant cookie...it's a win-win.

XXL Death by Chocolate Cookie
Ingredients
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar (or dark brown)
  • 2 Tablespoons beaten egg (crack an egg, beat it, and use 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips + 1 Tablespoon, divided
  • sprinkles, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix the softened butter and sugars together with a spoon or fork until creamed. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Fold in 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
  4. Place the dough in the center of the baking sheet and mold into a tall ball using a spoon. Dot the top of the cookie with 1 Tablespoon of chocolate chips. Add sprinkles on top if desired. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or up to 16 minutes. The cookie will appear very soft, but will firm up as it cools. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.
