I’ve been needing a chocolate fix for days now, and these cookies have hit the spot, they’re so rich I probably won’t need chocolate for days. Yeah right, who am I kidding. But seriously they are super chocolatey, so are not for the weak, you have to love chocolate. I had to try them straight from the oven, I just couldn’t help myself, they just fall apart and the chocolate just flows like molten lava. They a chewy, gooey and so unbelievably good. I could only have one, because of the richness but that means there are lots left for tomorrow. I have even frozen some of the dough to save for a rainy day, you would think having a baking blog I would have lots of cakes to give to people, but some how always manage to get caught out. So now I have a stock pile, and these baby’s are perfect straight out of the oven while the chocolate is still warm. I don’t think there are any better cookies than chocolate ones, don’t you?

      Hi Lindsey,

      Yeah I had never put it into cookies either, I was reading somewhere that its meant to make them soft and chewy, so I thought I would throw it in there, after all it makes pavlova so much better., These cookies are soft and chewy, however I am not sure if that is because of the cornflour or just because I like to slightly under bake my cookies so that they are soft.. I will have to bake another batch without the cornflour just to find out, its a price I’m just going to have to pay.

          Yeah I have heard of cornstarch but never tried it either. I had some cornflour so when I read it did the same I thought I would give it a go. I’ll let you know if I try them with out and see how they go. I have been eying off your peanut cookies though so I might have to try them first.
