Fudgey Cappuccino Cookies


Fudgey Cappuccino Cookies

5 ounces semisweet chocolate coarsely chopped
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
11 tablespoons softened butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup organic raw sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
8 ounces cappuccino chips

Melt chocolate, stir until smooth and set aside. Sift together: flour, baking soda and salt and set aside. In a stand mixer, beat butter until very creamy (about 3 minutes). Scrape down bowl and add both sugars until well blended. Add maple syrup, vanilla and eggs (one at a time). Mix well. Blend in cocoa and dry ingredients. Remove bowl, scrape down sides and add melted chocolate by hand. Add cappuccino chips (also by hand) and mix until just combined. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheets and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet and completely on a rack.

*I only baked my cookies 8 minutes... less baking time makes them CHEWY!!!
*The secret is in the maple syrup! It gives them even more "chew factor"!!
*The cookies will be puffed up when you open the oven door. They should puff and fall. They will fall once the cool air hits them... then they will "crack" and be... you guessed it... CHEWY!!!
