Smallville (or cookies in small batches)

DH and I were very happy to see the recent small batches posted on Cookie Madness. With just two of us, it's sometimes difficult to satisfy my desire to bake cookies and DH's desire to eat them without either of us looking like one of Knat's cows.

Tonight I made Outrageous Cookies. They batch makes only 10 cookies and that's great! They look wonderful and I'm hoping that they get come decent review from DH's office.

Why are they called outrageous. Hmmm. A 2 ounce bar of bittersweet chocolate and and 6 ounces of cut up flavored chocolate bar are in the 10 cookies! We had some two bars that I got on sale in the house so this batch contains one 3 ounce bar of Endangered Species 52% milk chocolate with almonds along with a less glamorous 3.5 ounce bar of Cocao Reserve 65% extra dark chocolate with cocao nibs in addition to the 2 ounce bar of Dagoba Organic New Moon 74% bittersweet chocolate purchased specifically for this recipe and melted into the batter. Chocolatey enough?

  1. Oh my, these look absolutely decadent! And I love the small-batch idea. I actually stopped baking cookies because a certain hubby of mine tends to inhale them in days, which is not good!

    You have inspired me...
