Double Chocolate Cookies for Two Recipe

If you’re going to have dessert you might as well make it fabulous. I would rather take one indulgent ice cream sundae with all the toppings my heart desires than settle for something less. If I have the urge for chocolate it’s best to just get it out of the way and savor every second of it. Enter these cookies.

Double Chocolate Cookies for Two made with cocoa and dark chocolate chips

Sometimes you just want the great taste of chocolate with a giant glass of milk.

When I spent time in the HERSHEY’S Kitchens this past summer I was so pleased to learn that The Hershey Company still uses fluid milk delivered fresh daily from local dairy farms to make their  HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolates in the West Hershey Plant in Hershey, PA. In fact Milton Hershey chose the Derry Township area to build his chocolate company because he wanted to ensure that the milk was only fresh milk coming in to make his product.

    I am wondering if you could remove the cocoa and add an extra Tbsp. of flour to make them a regular chocolate chip cookie?

    It’s funny cause everyone always complains that you can’t add a whole egg into a 1 or 2 cookie recipe… but I love how you use a yolk! Genius

    Was so excited to make these! But found that they weren’t sweet enough (need 2 T regular sugar also?). Also my mounds of dough didn’t really flatten, so the centers didn’t cook. Was I supposed to flatten them down?

    @Arathi, @Sneha, you can use 1T ground flax/chia seed + 3T water, for every egg/yolk required.
