These are not your ordinary chocolate chip cookies.
This is what happens when a chocolate chip cookie meets and falls for chocolate lava cake.
The outcome is a deep dish chocolate chip cookie with a molten chocolate center.
Certainly more cake than cookie, but oh so much better.
Start with your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Sounds silly but I still use the Nestle Toll House recipe found here.
Divide the dough in half.
Using 1/2 of your cookie dough, scoop out about 1 1/2 tbsps and flatten
place the discs in the bottom of a standard muffin pan (I used liners to save on the clean-up)
you should have enough for 12
In a ziploc bag melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (milk chocolate)
15 seconds on high should do it
snip the corner off of the bag and pipe about 1/2 tsp into each cookie
Using the remaining cookie dough repeat with 2 tbsp balls
flatten and top each cookie
bake @350 for 15 minutes
when the edges begin to turn golden they are done
if you did not use liners, run a knife around the edge of each cookie, but do not remove from the pan until they are cool
you could dress these up with ice cream and chocolate sauce, but I think they are simply delicious with a cold glass of milk
