I love these chocolate cookies so much I had to make a Valentine's version.
Recipe: 3/4 c butter
1 1/2 c dark brown sugar
2 c chocolate chips
2 T water
1 1/4 t baking soda
2 1/2 c flour or 3 c flour (at high altitude)
350F for 8 minutes ONLY
As soon as you remove the cookies to a cooling rack, press a candy melt in the center of the cookie. The dull finish of the candy melt will turn shiny as it melts. When fully melted, place your decoration in the center.
Let the candy melt fully set (about 30min) and store in an airtight container. Bake ahead and freeze for later use...such as classroom Valentine's parties.here) is that I can feel the sugar grit texture as I chew. They stay soft and chewy.
It doesn't help that they are small enough to make portion control pretty much impossible.
