Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Hello everyone, and happy Thursday! Here’s a fun fact to start off today’s post: This is the first chocolate dessert I’ve ever written about on my blog! There’s only one reason for this, as I am absolutely in love with chocolate, haha: acne. Chocolate makes my skin so sad. Still, I cave in sometimes.

Since 2017 began, this is also the first chocolate dessert I’ve made! I used a chocolate chip cookie recipe my mom has been making for years and substituted the chocolate chips for some dark chocolate bars (chopped up into chunks) with 70% cacao – that’s very dark chocolate! And it was soooo good in these cookies. They didn’t end up looking as pretty as I would have liked; the chocolate melted quite a bit, but they still turned out great, and everyone really liked them.

I hope you enjoy! Make sure to let me know if you ever make these cookies yourself. πŸ™‚
