Insanely Chocolate CookiesPrint This Recipe Total time Yield 16Source Daydreamer DessertsPublished
makes 16 cookies
- ½ cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- 16 ounce bittersweet chocolate chips
- ¼ teaspoon espresso powder
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoon unsalted butter (at room temperature)
- 2 large eggs (at room temperature)
- ⅔ cup chopped toasted pecan halves
Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper.
In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Melt 10oz of chocolate using the double-broiler method or in the microwave. While still hot, stir in espresso powder. Set aside to cool.
In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix just until they are combined.
Slowly add whisked dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the melted chocolate.
Finally stir in the reserved chocolate chips and pecans.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread it into an even-ish layer with a spatula.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place in the fridge for 20–30 minutes, or until firm enough to handle without it sticking to your fingers.
Remove the dough from the fridge and slide the parchment paper and dough onto a cutting board. Using a large, sharp knife, cut the dough into 16 equal pieces.
Give each piece a somewhat rounded shape with the palms of your hands and place on the prepared baking sheets.
Insert into the oven and bake for 12(chewy)-15(crispy)minutes. Or until the surface is just set, but still plenty soft when gently pressed in the middle.
Let the cookies settle on the baking sheet for 20 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.
We will be serving some of these on the deck of our new house this summer. What a yummy and refreshing beverage! Thanks so much for sharing it!
Have a great Sunday,
I love cocktails created based on a concept. Yours is great! Sounds deliciuous too 🙂 Congrats!
YUM!That looks delicious. I looked to sit with you at breakfast on Sunday, you were no where to be found… I’ll just have to get to know you through your blog 🙂
This is such a beautiful drink; one I think would be great for a bridal shower… or anytime!
Greg, what a gorgeous pink drink. Normally, even though I’m a girl (one couldn’t tell by my name), I don’t care for girly drinks. I’m more of a martini or scotch and soda kind of gal, although we drank more than our fair share of rum when we lived on a tropical island.
But all you had to do is mention rum and I’m aboard. I’m so glad you included it. It wouldn’t be the tropics without rum. The color turned out perfect. I really like the addition of the orange liqueur and definitely the club soda (instead of cola) to slow down the kick.
There’s a saying, “one martini, two martini, three martini floor.” Your tickled pink tropical island iced tea maybe should carry this same warning.
I am so making this! Cheers ; )
A few of these and you’ll be sure to forget that it’s hot out, because you’ll be passed out; ALL OVER!
Long Islands used to be my favorite. I’m sure all the bartenders thought I was just another dumb girly-girl.
These sound fabulous and now that I’m an educated adult ‘ol gal, I can make ’em myself and be as frilly as I wanna be. Thanks Greg!
This would make anyone feel good. The color is just as girl as you were going for.
Pretty! So pretty it must be delicious. I want a glass…
Rum, Gin, Vodka and Tequila??? My nose is turning pink just thinking about all that alcohol.
get his girl on more often, if this drink is any indication of the outcome! Love the idea of this summer “tea”, although one glass would have me on my a$$. 😉 And I’m coveting that epiphyllum — stunning.
We knew you’d come through in flying “pink” colors!! We can’t wait to kick off our summer this weekend when we are together in Maryland!! It’s the perfect cocktail for our summer!! Cheers!! Thanks for the fun!

One of those on a hot Minnesota summer day (yes, it does get hot. 84 this weekend.) & I’d be napping on the patio.
Way to bring out your feminine side! Good to let it loose every once in a while.
This version of a Long Island Iced Tea looks better than any of the typical versions I’ve ever had. Then again. I really like the color pink.
That manages to both look delicate and sound lethal — just possibly the perfect cocktail 🙂
Love your preponderance of pink in this post and all your alliterative flourishes. After you finished it, I hope you had a stiff one (drink, that is).
Love the photo! Love the drink! I can always count on you for a delicious cocktail hour.
