Death by Chocolate Cookies

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.

Charles M. Schulz

The world’s largest chocolate fountain is at the The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. The floor-to-ceiling sculpture circulates more than 2,100 pounds of melted milk, white and dark chocolate through 500 feet of pipes 24 hours a day. If you’re a chocolate lover—and even if you’re not—you cannot help but stare, spellbound by the silky pools of heavenly bliss as they float past. Combined with the intoxicating aroma, for a few fleeting moments, you find yourself lost in a chocolate decadent dream…I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.

See what chocolate does to me?!

If ever there was a recipe for a chocolate souffle cookie, this is it! This little nugget is sinfully delightful, intensely rich, and will melt in your mouth.

Anything this terrific should take hours to make. There are a few steps, I won’t mislead you. Yet every move you make will be worth it! I promise.

After I made these cookies, shared them with some friends and neighbors, and realized how good they were, I sent the recipe to a friend of mine. It just so happened to be the same day I published the “Do Something Good for Your Neighbor” post. She and her teenage daughters baked them straight away, and bestowed them upon a neighbor for a birthday gift. Two days later came the most delightful text message: “I have been eating one cookie a day, and they are the best chocolate cookies I have ever tried.” What more testimonial does one need?

Life happens. Chocolate helps. These cookies will definitely help! I hope you’ll try them and send me your reviews.
