Somewhere between a cookie, brownie and fudge, Joanne Chang’s recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies are not joking. They include both unsweetened and bittersweet chocolate, chunks and shavings for a deep chocolate flavor that isn’t too bitter.

Joanne says, “There are people who love chocolate and then there are PEOPLE WHO LOVE CHOCOLATE. This cookie is for the latter group. It's a little like a brownie, a little like fudge, and quite like the most chocolaty treat you'll ever eat. We melt unsweetened and bittersweet chocolate together and mix them into the batter and then fold in more chocolate chunks. Walnuts are there for those who like nuts in their cookies but feel free to omit them if you simply want chocolate. This recipe evolved many years ago when a new baker at Flour accidentally mixed in unsweetened chocolate chunks rather than bittersweet chunks into the batter. It was just a shade too bitter for almost everyone, but the element of pure, deep chocolate flavor that the unsweetened chunks added turned on a light bulb in our heads. We realized that unsweetened chocolate chunks, added in moderation, were the secret ingredient that would take this cookie from great to beyond stellar. So we added a smattering of shaved unsweetened chocolate to the final batter. Just be sure to shave it fine, as big chunks of it are likely going to be too strong. And then settle in with a few warm cookies and a big, tall glass of milk.”
