My family and I have a big sweet tooth for dark chocolate, and I wanted to make them a treat that was a little different than the usual chocolate chip cookie.  I have an everything chocolate cookbook that I love, and thought I would share the recipe with you.

Thoughts on the recipe turnout were that the cookie was crisp, even when I was careful not to over-bake it.  I like the recipe, but I wonder if there was a way to soften up the cookie a bit?  I’d love to hear your ideas!  Overall, however, the flavor was great, and my family has pretty much devoured the batch in just a few days.  Enjoy!!

Ingredients (adapted from Chocolate Mousse):

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1- ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2- ¾ cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾  cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.  Add gradually, to the butter mixture until incorporated.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, add 3 Tbsp. sugar and cinnamon together.  Roll dough in 1” balls and roll into sugar mixture.  Place on baking sheet, press lightly with a fork, and bake for 8-10 minutes or until set.
