Chocolate Fudge Cookies

chocolate-fudge-cookiesMy coworkers are always bugging me to bring them cookies. These chocolate fudge cookies have been a topic of discussion for a couple weeks now.

And, I get it, it makes sense. I bake, blog, and promote my recipes every weekend. It looks, from the outside, like my house is full of cookies, brownies, muffins, and cake.

The reality, I’m afraid, is a bit less sexy.

First, there’s the fact that I have three teenagers. Teenagers who are under the impression that if they don’t eat the cookies the first minute they see them, they will miss out forever.

It’s not far from the truth.

Then there’s the fact that I like to do my own cookie eating on the weekends, and try not to leave them around to tempt me during the week.

And sometimes I make recipes like this one, which only make a few cookies total, so there’s almost no hope of them lasting a full day.

Fun fact about chocolate cookies: when the dough tastes like fudge, so do the cookies. OH MAN.

These are not everyday cookies. These are special occasion cookies. Very special.

After all, this much chocolate is not to be taken lightly.

I should remind my coworkers of that fact.
