Sweet Saturday: 1 XXL Chocolate Cookie

Happy Saturday, my dear friends! I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. :o)

Chocolate cookies are innately amazing... but sometimes you want one that's massive in size. Massive as in *just* under six inches in diameter:
This is pure decadence. The first time I shared it with my mom... the second time, with my sweetheart. Everyone is wild about this cookie. I love giant cookies because there's so much gooey interior to enjoy. The inside of this one just so happens to taste like a fudgy brownie. :o)

With such a small amount of each ingredient, this comes together quickly (NO mixer required), and before long you can satisfy that persistent chocolate craving. It also makes for an impressive treat without hours of invested time. Sometimes you need these types of recipes. :o)

Plus, this treat is simply fun. Especially when topped with bright sprinkles of happiness. :o) There's something so beautifully sweet about sharing a dessert with someone you love... soon I'll be sharing this with my niece. :o)

Thank you for stopping by! Have a sweet weekend! :o)

1 XXL Chocolate Cookie
Yield: 1 large cookie (or four smaller cookies, if desired)

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar (or dark brown)
2 Tablespoons beaten egg (crack an egg, beat it, and use 2 Tablespoons)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips + 1 Tablespoon, divided
Sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

In a medium size bowl, mix the softened butter and sugars together with a spoon or fork until creamed. Mix in the egg and vanilla.

In a separate small bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Fold in ¼ cup chocolate chips.

Place the dough in the center of the baking sheet and mold into a tall ball using a spoon. (Dough will be sticky.) Dot the top of the cookie with 1 Tablespoon of chocolate chips. Add sprinkles on top, if desired.

Bake for 14-15 minutes, or up to 16 minutes. (Mine is always perfect at 14... do not overbake this beauty!) The cookie will appear very soft, but will firm as it cools. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.

You may make four smaller cookies using this recipe. Simply divide the dough into 4 smaller mounds on the cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
