Boy, do these cookies live up to their name.
They really are addictive.
With all the rich flavor of a slice of chocolate cake packed into one cookie, you really can't just eat one. It's humanly impossible.
A warning to all: If you make these, make small cookies. You'll be eating at least 5 of them in one sitting. Plus, smaller cookies means more cookies, and more cookies is never a bad thing. Especially when the cookies are so addictive that you just might eat 20 in one day.
Alright, maybe I'm going a bit too overboard with the whole addictive concept.
But I can't help it! These things are just so good!
But, honestly, isn't that what you'd expect when you see chocolate, cake, and cookie, all in the same sentence?
Chocolate Cake Cookies - you can find the original recipe here
(makes a pretty big batch, but believe me, they'll be gone before you know it)
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar (some people may want more)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder - keep in mind that better quality cocoa powder makes better cookies
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of salt
1/2 cup Karo syrup (light or dark)
3 egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the Karo syrup and egg whites until well blended. The dough will be sticky and relatively thick. Spoon dough onto sprayed cookie sheets. I recommend using teaspoons to measure out the size of each cookie. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or just until the cookies have set. The cookies should still be soft when pressed when you take them out. Let cookies cool before eating.
Now, you can try these cookies and see if you agree with me in terms of addictive-ness. I really think you will. That is, unless you don't like chocolate cake. Or cookies.
But c'mon, that's like 5% of the whole world.
P.S. Did anyone notice the abundance of pictures on this post? I turns out these cookies are addictive to photograph, as well as eat.
