Best Chocolate Cookies Ever (EASY TOO!!!)

When you have that longing for chocolate, that feeling like you could elbow a kid out of the candy aisle to get some, I suggest bagging the candy bar and whipping up this extraordinarily simple & decadent chocolate cookie. It will fulfill your craving for days.

This cookie can be served two ways:
1) a simple yummy decadent cookie (add some ice cream in a bowl for a fab dinner party dessert)
2) an over the top fantastic ice cream sandwich with chocolate sprinkles.

This is my mom's recipe, a petite woman who is on a self proclaimed "cookie diet." She always made the best cookies in the neighborhood, and still has the magic touch. Give them a try and please let us know what you think!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 10 minutes (and not a second longer!)
Need double boiler

Ingredients:
12 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chip cookies
3/4 stick of unsalted butter
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup flour
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
**Optional
for an ice cream sandwich: your favorite ice cream (Haagen Dazs Vanilla Bean "5" used here, with chocolate sprinkles)

Directions:
(Preheat oven to 325)

*In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips and butter and stir together
*Once melted together, remove the choco/butter mixture and set pot on hot pad on the counter.
*Mix in the sweetened condensed milk, Vanilla extract and flour
*On a foil lined cookie sheet, put about a tablespoon of the mixture in the shape of a ball on the foil.
*Bake for exactly 10 minutes (the texture of these cookies is very soft, almost like a combo cookie/brownie)
*Let cool for 20 minutes or so.
They are rich, so 1-2 will satisfy your chocolate craving monster !

If you want to make ice cream sandwiches
*let the cookies rest until the are room temperature, or even put a few in the fridge over night to cool them down.
*set the ice cream out for a few minutes so it's soft enough to work with
*scoop whatever portion of ice-cream you want onto the bottom side of a cookie,
quickly top it off with another cookie,
*Meanwhile pour the choco sprinkles in a little bowl
*dip all the exposed ice cream into the sprinkles, immediately put in the freezer or they will start to fall apart.
*If you want to serve these at a party, I'd do it all the night before and keep them in the freezer until the party. Then they will be secure and ready to serve!

Voila, Enjoy. These cookies also freeze well so you can save some for another time when your chocolate craving takes over!

Cheers and happy chocolating!

Hi Cameron! I am actually thinking of making these today. But I was reading the ingredients and got a little confused. For the first ingredient, do you mean '12 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips'? Not cookies, right? Just wanted to clear that up :) Thanks!

hey Cam... i was looking through your reviews and they are AWESOME!!! one suggestion... when you need to create the data point for a first of a kind review like yours, if you put a photo in the data point, then it shows up every time the review is listed like at the bottom of this page. And since you pictures so perfectly describe the data point it helps to make the reviews look that much more enticing. just a tip. thanks again!!

Uh oh... This looks way too easy and I happen to have all those ingredients at home (though I'll be replacing those chocolate chips with Trader Joe's Pound Plus Chocolate Bar)!  Looks like I'm going to be making these very soon.  Thanks for sharing! :)
