Death by Chocolate….Cookie! Let’s take a moment to think about this. I love Death by Chocolate. Anything and everything I have ever created with that theme in mind has been to die for. No pun intended. OK, well maybe I did plan that out.
My favorite Death by Chocolate Cake takes a full day to prepare and 2 sink loads of dishes, a FULL day. I know, I know. I was once an overachiever with a lot more time on my hands. Seven layers of heavenly chocolate beautifully packaged into this fabulous cake. If you have someone to make it for you… You totally need to try it.
After some self-therapy and coming to terms with the above delicious creation and the fact that I just don’t have that kind of time, I decided to simplify. So, I used that fantabulous theme to create a Death by Chocolate Bundt Cake. With four incredible kinds of chocolate packed into a simple and impressive Bundt cake (with an awesome Kahlua kick), I thought I had found my true Death by Chocolate love…
THEN… Last week +Lizzy Do from That Skinny Chick Can Bake posted these Death by Chocolate Cookies. I saw it in my Google+ posts and you know I was on her site faster than lightening! The idea of my favorite rich, decadent, dessert in a bite sized package thrilled me. I made them the very next day.
Such an easy recipe and all that flavor packed into a tiny cookie. This is currently my favorite Death by Chocolate endeavor. I packed 5 kinds of chocolate into that bite sized cookie. Milk, Semi-sweet, bittersweet, cocoa and white, 5 layers of ooey gooey goodness. Few dishes and the first batch was out of the oven less than 30 minutes later! SCORE.
Enjoy. With love from our Kitchen Table to yours. XOXO

Death by Chocolate Cookies
makes approximately 6 dozen (1 tablespoon) cookies
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
½ cup milk chocolate chips (or chopped milk chocolate bar)
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º. Prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a small heat safe bowl, melt 8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth. Stir and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl add butter and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix until incorporated.
Add the melted chocolate and beat until combined. Using a small sieve or sifter, sift in the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt) and mix on low speed until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a 1 tablespoon scooper or heaping teaspoonful drop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes; until the cookies have begun to set. The center may still appear soft, they will firm up as they cool.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
