By adding the remaining ingredients to the melted chocolate mixture, a decadent batter is ready for baking. Pair with a glass of milk and savor the ultimate in homespun comfort.
CHEWY CHOCOLATE COOKIES
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 cup chocolate chips, butter, and condensed milk. Microwave on HIGH until chocolate chips have melted, about 2 minutes, stirring once halfway through; stir until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips. Add flour mixture. Stir until smooth. Drop by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until centers are almost set, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
