Rob said, “this is a good cookie” after taking his first bite of these special nuggets.  And he repeated it over and over again each time I baked them off.   Pure chocolate.  Dark, rich and if eaten the day they are made, are yes, truly molten.  (Following days just pop in micro for 4 seconds.)  I don’t have much more to say about them – but do know that they are special and different from all the other chocolate cookies that I have posted.  Actually thinking that one day soon I’ll make all the chocolate cookies on the blog and have a tasting.  Oh, I should mention that this recipe comes from the back of the Guittard Choc Chip bag.  The recipe calls for you to melt the chips — which I never do (melt chips instead of block chocolate) but I do trust the Guittard people.  So try and enjoy!

chocolate molten cookies (from the semi-sweet Guittard Chocolate Chip bag):

2 cups Guittard Semisweet Choc Chips
3 tablespoons butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (optional)

Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler.  Stir and remove once melted (this will be thick).

With the paddle attachment of your mixer, beat the eggs, salt and vanilla.  Once the eggs are broken up, pour in the sugar then beat on medium high speed until thicker and lighter in color.  4-5 m.

Scrape the bowl, and beat again.  Then add the melted chocolate/butter and mix until blended.

On the lowest speed, add the flour and baking powder and mix until just incorporated.

Fold in bitter chocolate chips.  Place in frige for 30 minutes (or longer is fine — or freeze in balls, or logs for a later date).

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Scoop 2 tablespoon balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.  (You can make smaller and of course the baking time will be less…)

Bake for 10-12 minutes – rotating pan half way through.  Do not overcook – if anything err on the side of under baking to experience extra gooeyness.

Enjoy –

(oh, if eating the next day, just place in microwave for 4 second to re-goo.)
