When I started this Web site, my friend Nancy asked me if I was familiar with her chocolate chocolate chip cookies. When I replied that it wasn't ringing any bells, she said "ask Dean about them." Curious, I asked Dean if he remembered Nancy's cookies, thinking that there was no way he would still remember, considering that it was years ago. Here is his reply:
OMG. How could I ever forget those cookies. They were the absolute BEST!!! They were little circles of heaven.
After that endorsement, I knew that I had to have the recipe!
Here are the specifics. Straight from the source:
1 box Duncan Hines devil's food cake mix (yes, the brand does make a difference!)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
I usually end up eating half the batch as they come out of the oven.
Mix it all together, bake in oven at 350 for 10-12 minutes. The cookies look wrinkly.
Also extremely tasty with peanut butter chips and, separately, teeny tiny marshmallows for smores cookies. I also like them with the standard chocolate chips and loads of shredded coconut.
