This double chocolate chip cookie recipe was inspired by my deep love of chocolate.
I know I'm not alone, and believe it or not, there are actually are some chocolate recipes, (though not many), that are too chocolaty, even for me.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
I've added chopped pecans to this one for added texture but hey, you can use whatever kind of nuts you like. Have a nut allergy? Leave the pecans out. These cookies will still be delicious.
This cookie is also one of those gooey cookies.
However, there's something about chocolate chip cookies that lend themselves to a chewy cookie persona, and I haven't found one person who doesn't like a soft and gooey cookie yet.
Not that I don't like a nice crisp cookie because I do.
In fact, I have a recipe for pumpkin pie spice cookies that are a little on the crunchy side.
Besides, it seems like every time I turn around someone is writing that chocolate is good for you. Chocolate is good for your heart, your brain, and your mental health.
Well, I don't know if that is true. Maybe another chocoholic wrote it but I do feel like it's definitely good for my mood.
I know, I had you at double chocolate.
