Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Cookies created by Dine  Dish

We've been making these chewy morsels since I was a kid. They cool to a very flat cookie that looks like it should be crisp, but isn't. I really don't think you should use anything but butter, but that's just my opinion! You can add 1 cup of chopped walnuts if you'd like, too.

    We made these at Christmas time and added peanut, chocolate chips and pecans to the batter and they were off the chain amazing! The first batch was gone very quickly and my kids and grandkids begged for a batch to eat for their trip back home so I obliged. They said it made their trip a little shorter because they ate cookies all the way back to NC. ha Thank you for an awesome recipe.

    The flavor of these is amazing. I used margarine and cheap cocoa, and the flavor was absolutely fine. I don't quite understand the flattening effect. I wish they had the flavor AND the substance, because I'd eat one and then feel disappointed that there was so little there. I may try adding some baking powder next time to see if that's what they're missing. Otherwise, like I said, great flavor. I'll be working with this recipe. Thanks.

    These were so, so good! They did have a taste very similar to a brownie, but the texture was a lot lighter and more cookie-like. This was such an easy and fun recipe with great results. Thanks!

    These cookies were GROSS. I don't know why but mine turned out NOTHING like the picture or description. I used margarine because I didn't have butter but everything else I followed EXACTLY. The dough was very dry and the cookies were like powder when cooked. I kept lessening the time until I was only cooking them 3 minutes and they were STILL dried out. It was like eating plain cocoa and flour. They never puffed or flattened either so I have NO idea what happened. Very disappointing.

    I used el cheapo cocoa, but they still came out yummy. They were soft and almost brownie-like. I loved them, and I'm sure I'll make these again.
