Sometimes you don’t need an entire batch of cookies! That’s where this recipe for chocolate cookies for two comes in. Of course you should probably like chocolate cookies first though. These have a little surprise inside to sweeten the deal too. Do you want to know what’s inside? It’s a chocolate bar! Well, half of one actually. I split the chocolate bar between the two cookies so they both had a little surprise! If you eat these warm, the center will be oh so gooey. If you eat them at room temperature, the chocolate will still be soft and easy to cut through with your spoon.
You could also go all out and add a third chocolate component. Drizzle some hot fudge on the top of these guys and call it a day. Yeah, these are rich. I would even dare to say that they’re decadent, but worth every single calorie.
I also couldn’t help but add a little pop of color to the cookie. I went with little peanut butter filled candies because I liked the contrast. It had absolutely nothing to do with peanut butter being my very favorite thing to eat. Nothing at all. *wink* You could easily switch those out with chocolate chips, mint chips, caramel chips, other candies. Basically anything you have on hand will do.
I’m absolutely in love with all these new dishes that I got from Revol. I’m a sucker for white on white so there’s that, but those scalloped edges are everything too. The quality is superb. The pans have a little heft to them which reminds me of a higher quality pan. I could have just created that theory in my head, but it’s out in the open now. All of the pans are made in France and shipped over to the US which is pretty neat.
