It’s not often I blog about chocolate cookies. Especially chocolate cookies with more chocolate inside.
I like chocolate, I really do. But for some reason, I’d choose a shortbread cookie or a sugar cookie or even a chocolate chip cookie over a full-out chocolate cookie.
This cookie though? It’s more like a brownie.
Like, you know the crackly top of a brownie that’s pretty much the best thing ever? These are like that all the way around and with the soft brownie part inside.
I realize that made absolutely no sense but trust me, it’s like a brownie!
I’m kind of obsessed with them.
They’re gluten-free so they are the perfect treat for someone following a gluten-free diet. They’re also really simple and really delicious so you should probably make some soon even if you aren’t gluten-free.
