Dark Chocolate Chip Yummy Cookies

Remember me telling you a while ago that I was slightly addicted to dark chocolate? Well I was not really lying. I seem to eat it multiple times through the week (only in moderation of course) and I love it!! I cannot get enough of it, especially as a little treat after a savory meal.

With that said, I thought to myself about making dark chocolate chip cookies.  I mean pretty easy – just substitute the milk chocolate chips in for dark chocolate chips and away you go.  Genius, but then I said… what if I eat the whole batch of cookies?  Mrs Zesty and little zest’s do not love dark chocolate at all as a matter of fact, zesty junior coins the taste as ” ewww yuck, Dad that is terrible”.

But guess what?  I made the cookies anyway and pretty much did eat the whole batch…. go Bowflex!


  • 2/3 Cup Melted Butter
  • 2 Cups Lightly Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Hot Water
  • 2 2/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Package (270g) Dark Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add melted butter, brown sugar, eggs and hot water and mix well.
  3. Stir in the remaining dry ingredients.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and mix thoroughly.
  5. Drop from spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet
  6. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown on the bottom.
  7. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: For a chewier thinner cookie, press the dough down with a spatula or fork and make sure you under cook them slightly.  I would suggest 7 minutes depending on the thickness.  Trial and error as this batch will yield at least 24-36 cookies.

So it is Friday and Monday is a holiday here for us.  Whoooo hooooo.  We have a sleigh ride slated for tomorrow afternoon but the weather may throw a wrench into that plan.  Too early to tell so I will play it by ear.  Other than that, I think this weekend may be deemed relaxation and catch up on consulting work.  Oh and likely a few Dexter episodes.  Have a super Friday and I will catch you Monday for a new week.

Take care
