The instant I saw the photo of these Double Chocolate Blackout Cookies, I literally ran to the store (it's only a few blocks away, Thank God!). I picked up the ingredients in a flash, and ran back home to bake. BEST DECISION EVER! I can't remember when I last ate (much less baked) a cookie with such a powerful punch of flavors! Equally important, the texture is to DIE for! Rich, creamy yet with a great crumb. Sad part- the batch was gone in under an hour. Best part- I bought enough ingredients to make at least 5 more batches this weekend. Thank You @AbouttoSprout and @Food52 for this TOP NOTCH Chocolate Bomb!! Eagerly await more magical recipes from you!
