Can I let you in on a little secret? There are many recipes I make and share with you that my family does not like. If I’m lucky, I’ll get a courtesy bite. Nick and Tom have more adventuresome palates, but Nick is away at college and Tom has his own place. I’m left with the two picky eaters at home. A blogger’s nightmare, but still, some recipes are huge hits. And these double chocolate cookies were one of them. I should have made a double batch of these ultimate chocolate cookies…there’s a whopping ONE POUND of chocolate in this recipe. Plus some instant coffee powder…just enough to intensify the chocolate flavor without an obvious coffee flavor. Glossy and gorgeous…these were a glorified hit.
