TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Cocoa, chocolate chips, chocolate covered almonds and coffee beans. Cookies.
We adore them. It's the BEST!- I've heard( not too humble huh..). I can't restrict myself in calling them the best.
If there's one thing kids ask(almost demand) when they come to our place, are these cookies. Now coming to think of it, I'm not too sure it's just them asking or one chocoholic teen who makes them ask...
The cookies are slightly crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, little like a cushioned brownie. They are quite chocolaty with hints of crunch from the almonds and coffee beans.
The idea of using coffee beans came from the beautiful Chef Giada De Laurentis, she used them in her cookie recipe and I thought it was an ingenious idea.
I've bought chocolate covered coffee beans(now try saying that 5 times:)),..ate it all even before it made to the batter. This time I bought my chocolate covered coffee beans last and added it first.
We couldn't wait for it to get out of the oven, it's one of those things which tastes out of the world crazy good when it's warm.
Turn on a movie, .Sit in your spots, warm up the cookie a bit and close your eyes and take a bite, it is perfect..
It's OK, all the craziness with chocolate but what's NOT OK was, I had a boy bouncing off the walls. What remained was boxed for later.
What is YOUR favorite cookie?
I leave you with this chocolate heaven. Hope you all have an awesome weekend.
