BIG FAT DOUBLE DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIES {ALMOST LEVAIN BAKERY KNOCKOFF}

These almost Levain bakery knockoff double dark chocolate cookies are insane. Insanely decadent. Insanely chocolate-y. Insanely delicious. I’m not sure I’ve met a cookie that defines my soul quite like this one.

Prep Time: 30 MINS

– cold salted butter – sugar – eggs – vanilla extract – all-purpose – cake flour – cocoa powder – baking soda – salt – chocolate chips

YIELD: 10 BIG FAT COOKIES

Ingredients

White Scribbled Underline

01

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the cold butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Start the mixer on low (the butter will fly around a bit since it’s cold) and gradually increase to medium speed.

02

Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined and the batter is light in color, 2-3 minutes. Add the flour, cake flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

03

Mix on low speed until the dough starts to come together (and so the dry ingredients don’t fly everywhere). When just a few dry streaks remain, add the chocolate chips or chunk and mix just until combined and there are no dry spots.

04

Scoop very large balls of dough (I measured out about 4-4.25 ounces for each cookie) and place several inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. I did five cookies per sheet.
