You know those kind of days when you have a super strong chocolate craving, and you need something super chocolatey, and you need it now? I had one of those days recently. Rather than making the usual chocolate chip cookies or brownies, I decided I’d make something different using both chocolate chips and cocoa powder.
What I ended up with was a warm, gooey, glorious combination of both chocolate chips and brownies. These cookies will make you melt, my friend, and they will satisfy your strongest chocolate cravings. And, well, they’re just really good. My husband ended up eating some for breakfast the morning after I made these. He couldn’t resist.
