Christmas eve is 5 days away and the stress of getting everything ready for it is intense! Luckily I got most of my shopping done, just a few things left. I have to venture to IKEA tomorrow and I'm sure that's going to be madness. If only IKEA had a bar I could spend all day there with no problem! ;) I wanted to make one more batch of Christmas cookies before my banana bread baking bonanza began. I will be baking about 5 loaves of my banana bread for everyone at my office so my house is going to be nutty monkey heaven! My fudgy cookies turned out big and soft, the perfect cookie to leave out for Santa on Christmas eve :) Click "read more" to see the recipe and more pictures!
I once again used ghirardelli chocolate bars to make this recipe... and wow, it makes for such a rich cookie! This is definitely for the chocolate lovers in your family.
They almost have a brownie consistency they are so soft! To keep them this soft make sure to seal them in an airtight container after baking. If you find that they begin to get a little too hard for your liking, stick a piece of bread, any bread, in the container with the cookies. Its a secret trick to make cookies soft again! Now lets get to the recipe....
Servings: 24ish (I made my cookies pretty big!)
