It is very cold and snowy today, so it seemed like a perfect time to bake. So here are mudslide cookies.
These are a super chocolately chocolate cookie. They use unsweetened and dark chocolate in the base and I tossed in mini chips for good measure. I mean honestly, can you ever have too much chocolate? I think not! These also call for cake flour. If you don’t have it, you can make it yourself. For this recipe you will whisk together 2 and 3/4 cups all purpose flour and 4 1/2 tbs cornstarch.
Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. I also recommend chilling the dough for at least a few hours. And, preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, broken into pieces
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips (or 9 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped)
8 tbs butter
2 3/4 cups
1 tbs vanilla
1 tbs water
2 3/4 cups cake flour
1 tbs (yes, tbs) baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave butter, unsweetened chocolate and dark chocolate in 45 second increments until you can stir smooth. Set aside. In a bowl, beat eggs, sugar, water and vanilla for 5 to 6 minutes. Add melted chocolate. Stir in dry ingredients. Mix in chips. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line cookies sheets with parchment paper. Stagger cookies on sheet.
Bake 14 minutes, no longer. If desired, sprinkle powdered sugar on hot cookies. Cool completely. Store in covered container.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day. Remember to be kind! We all need more kindness
These are a wonderful cookie – fudgy, soft and made with three kinds of chips – semisweet, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. They stayed nice and puffy too, which I love. Flat cookies are not my bag.
Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. (Don’t directly pour from the bag into the measuring cup). I recommend chilling the scooped out dough for a few hours to prevent cookies from spreading. I also recommend you preheat your oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temp.

No Bills game this first NFL Sunday of the season, so I am calm and relaxed. So much so that Gracie got to nap as we flip through all the games. We have the Sunday ticket for free for a 3rd straight year, which is just awesome! Anyways, I thought we can celebrate this day with mudslide cookies… really just a chocolate cookie with some chocolate chips.
Reminders – remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also, chill the dough for at least an hour. And, preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temp.
