Double Chocolate Cracked Cookies

April 29, 2016
Chocolate lovers delight! 
Double chocolate cookies that have a soft center and a crunchy, cracked top.

It's the weekend! Yay!

What are your plans for the weekend?  Mine sorta-kinda depends on the weather. Our weather has been really beautiful here lately.  Sunny, warm and 70 degrees. With that, I ventured out and bought a ton of seeds and gardening supplies and was planning on working outside this weekend.

However, mother nature has different ideas. The weather for the past two days has been drastically different from a few days ago. A bit chilly(40's!), rainy and cloudy. Ugh. The temperatures are supposed to be warmer for the weekend, but, rain is in the forecast for both Saturday and Sunday. Kind of a bummer.

But, there is lots of projects inside the house to work on. Being that our house is 100 years old and it's last remodel was done in 1985 by the previous owners, there is always something to work on. I would always prefer outside stuff though. Crossing my fingers for dry weather and sun!



These cookies could make your weekend pretty much prefect. They are double chocolate and are seriously fabulous.  These gems will cure your chocolate craving in a flash. So very good and so very chocolaty.

Get yourself a cold glass of milk and make some cookies this weekend!

Double Chocolate Cracked Cookies

Published 04/09/2016

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup ( 1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie/baking sheet or line with parchment paper/slip mats.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and cocoa powder. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugar and yogurt. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix until fully combined.
  4. Gradually, add in flour/cocoa mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
  5. Roll dough into approx 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes, then, remove from oven. With a fork, gently press down on cookies to flatten a bit and give cookies a "cracked" look. With remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, top each cookie with 2-3 chocolate chips and press them in lightly.
  7. Return cookies back to oven and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
  8. Let cookies cool 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet. Remove and cool completely on wire rack.
