Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies...



Did anyone watch The Bachelor this season?

Anyone?

I was sucked into it. I usually skip a few seasons, then end up tuning in and become addicted.

At first I was excited that Juan Pablo, aka JP, was chosen. Then, after a few episodes, I was a little disenchanted with him. 

Here is my recap of this seasons Bachelor, because you totally need another recap:

1. Juan Pablo charms the ladies. 

2. Juan Pablo kisses the ladies... then uses his daughter as an excuse to not kiss the ladies. 

3. Juan Pablo says: "Lookatme, lookatme, lookatme" many times, as well as "What are you thinking," "It's okay," "I like you," "Aye, aye, aye."

4. Juan Pablo sends home many women, including Renee, my favorite. 

5. Sharleen leaves because she is struggling with her feelings for JP and thinks that they have no "cerebral connection" between the two of them. Yeah... she basically called him a dunce.  

6. Andi leaves after the Fantasy Suite when JP is insincere toward her... and he is totally oblivious why she feels that way. 

7. The last two women, Claire and Nikki, visit Juan Pablo's family, who inform them both that JP can be rude and difficult... and they both seem okay with that.

8. Juan Pablo makes a rude comment, off mic, to Claire... that she won't say out loud... yet, she stays for the final rose ceremony, in hopes she will be proposed to.

9. Nikki still can't get JP to say "I love you," to her and cries in her hotel sweet, the night before the final rose ceremony.

10. Juan Pablo totally disses Claire and tells her she is not the one, even thought he has lead her to believe otherwise. Claire then gives him a piece of her mind. You go girl!

11. Juan Pablo chooses Nikki. Although, he doesn't give her a ring, but the last rose. Can you say akward!?!

And... the end. Well, except for the after show, where it got just a tad bit uncomfortable, when JP still wouldn't give us the goods on whether or not he loves Nikki.

Geez... I needed some chocolate after all that...

... so I made these cookies. You are welcome.

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1-3/4 Cups Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3/4 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (1 Stick), Softened and Divided
  • 2 Whole Eggs, Room Temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2- 10oz. Bags of Dark Chocolate Morsels
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper for easy clean-up; set aside.

In a double boiler, melt half of the butter with one bag of the dark chocolate morsels, stirring to keep from burning. When done take off the heat and set aside.

In a small bowl, measure the flour, cocoa, salt, and powder. Whisk to combine; set aside. In a medium or large bowl, cream the sugar and other half of the butter. Add the eggs, one at a time, just until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as you go. Add the vanilla and the melted dark chocolate mixture that was set aside previously. 

Mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients a little at a time to form the cookie dough. Finally, fold in the second bag of dark chocolate morsels. 

Form the dough into 1-1/2 to 2 inch balls and bake on the parchment lined sheets two inches apart for 12-14 minutes, or until the cookies are set. Cool a few minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely. Makes 28-30 cookies.

Enjoy!
