1 XXL Death by Chocolate Cookie

1 XXL Death by Chocolate Cookie

Makes 1 Giant Cookie

2 T butter
2 T sugar
2 T brown sugar
2 T beaten egg
1/2 t vanilla
3/8 C flour
2 T cocoa
1/4 t baking soda
1/8 t salt
1/4 C + 1 T mini chocolate chips (divided)

Beat butter and sugars till creamy. Add egg, vanilla, soda, and salt. Beat till well mixed. Slowly beat in flour, cocoa, and then 1/4 C mini chips. Drop/spread/form dough in 1 mound on center of greased cookie sheet. sprinkle top of dough with remaining mini chips. Bake at 350 for 11 min.

The original recipe for this comes from Sally's Baking Addiction, however, i had to make a few minor modifications in order for my cookie to turn out right. Modifications such as more flour, less baking soda, and less salt. Nothing is worse to me than a flat cookie so I had to do more flour other wise the cookie definitely would have turned out flat. (might have to do w/ living in a high altitude location.) And then I chose to use less baking soda and salt because 1/2 t baking soda for just 1 cookie seems like way too much and then less salt because Im not a fan of salty cookies so it was my way of playing it safe. This cookie tastes like a molten lava cake, but in a cookie form. The inside is so moist and fudge-like. Its incredible. You just have to try it. I love the fact that this recipe make just 1 giant cookie (giant as in size of my face,) especially since my mom freaks out when I make a large batch. She hates when there are too many sweets sitting around, however she definitely wasn't mad about this one considering she pinned the recipe and ate half my cookie ): Its OK, i'll for sure be making this again
