Did you know that July 7th is World Chocolate Day! I didn’t until this weekend when someone mentioned it in passing. I thought “HEY! World Chocolate Day is the perfect time to share this Easy Double Chocolate Cookies recipe!” And it is! And believe me when I tell you these are super, duper delicious!
Easy Double Chocolate Cookies Ingredients:
1 box Chocolate cake mix
½ C Butter, softened
1 tsp Vanilla
½ C White chocolate chips
Easy Double Chocolate Cookies Directions:
Preheat oven to 375
Empty cake mix into a bowl. Add the butter and vanilla.
In another bowl, combine the eggs and give them a quick whisk with a fork to break the yolks.
Add the eggs to the cake mixture and combine well.
Spoon out the cookies onto a silicone baking mat lined baking sheet or a parchment lined baking sheet. I like to use a cookie scoop (approximately 2 tbsp) so that all the cookies are uniform in size.
Using a fork, flatten the cookies slightly.
Bake for approximately 10 – 12 minutes
Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them onto a cooling rack.
When cookies are completely cooled, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in a small bowl, using 30 second increments.
When completely melted, spoon the chocolate into a small sandwich bag that you’ve cut the smallest corner off, to pipe the chocolate all over the cookie tops.
Let the chocolate cool and harden.
Serve and Enjoy!
Tasty, quick and practically effortless, these Easy Double Chocolate Cookies are sure to please! Not to mention fun to decorate! You could make these perfect for any occasion by adding sprinkles, changing the color of the chocolate or using a cream cheese icing!
This most recent batch was made with regular cake mix for the hubby, but I’ve been thinking of trying this recipe with a gluten free cake mix too. I haven’t had a chance yet, and it might take an extra egg or 2, but I think this would work really well! And I can’t wait to give it a try… just have to remember to pick up a mix at the store next time I get groceries!
Either way, these Easy Double Chocolate Cookies are the perfect treat for National Chocolate Day!
