I grew up hating chocolate. If my mom was going in to a store with the the promise of bringing us a surprise, all of my siblings would always confirm that she WOULDN’T choose chocolate, because obviously that would be the worst. Whatever. We were weird. But these cookies—I remember my mom making these cookies. Chewy and chocolaty and just so good. These guys started my love affair with chocolate.
Fast forward a few years and I had someone share a recipe with me for homemade oreos. Super yummy, but they used a box cake mix which kind tastes like box cake mix. I remembered this childhood cookie recipe and thought I’d give it a try. The combo is pretty magical.
A tower of these bad boys is my son’s current treat of choice. I’m all for it—easier than a big cake—this is what he has chosen for his bday treat the last couple of years. He gets it.
So mix some of these babies up for a special occasion or for a quiet Tuesday. They freeze well and work great to pull out for visitors. Grab the printable below, or pin it for later! Happy chocolate eating!
