Author Notes: One time, I made a similar cookie (one that also called for melted chocolate in the batter) with a Valrhona chocolate bar that, unbeknownst to me, was flavored with orange. My sister and I could not for the lives of us figure out what had made the cookies taste so good. Finally, a teacher (we had baked the cookies for a class of hers) came out with it: "I love the orange flavor," she said completely casually. That said, these cookies are great made with regular semi-sweet Ghiradelli chocolate chips, which is what I used here. More important is the quality of the cocoa powder--I like to use non-alkaline Scharffen Berger Cara Eisenpress

Makes 36

  • 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons Natural (not Dutch processed) cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cups milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In the microwave, nuke the semi-sweet chocolate chips until just barely melted, stirring to melt the last few chips. Set aside to come to room temperature.
  3. Cream the butter with the sugar and molasses until lightened and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and cream again.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Stir into the butter mixture just until all the flour is incorporated (the dough will be pretty tough). Stir in the milk chocolate chips.
  5. Roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 8 minutes, then leave on the parchment to cool at least 10 minutes before eating.

The receipe needs to be clarified. I made these but didn't know precisely when to add the melted chocolate chips. I did it after the flour. Seemed to work out. Delicious.

Step 3 - Don't forget to add the cooled melted chocolate after you've creamed in the egg and vanilla.
Other thoughts:
The dough is very soft and sticky. I think the cookies perform a little better after the dough has chilled a bit.
