Food of the Gods Chocolate Cookies

Okay, I’ll admit, I thought the name was overkill when I first saw this recipe over on Maggie Louise Bakes. I mean, “food of the gods?” No, really. It is. Don’t take my word for it — make these cookies!

Food of the Gods Chocolate Cookies

You may need a superhuman tolerance for chocolate, as there is a whole lotta cocoa in these babies, as well as three different kinds of chocolate chips… but that is not a problem for me. Far from it.

I took a batch of these to a barbecue a couple of weekends ago, and they disappeared quickly, receiving rave reviews. I may or may not have eaten a couple of them myself. And Nora’s telltale chocolate mustache let the world know she sampled some too.

Food of the Gods Chocolate Cookies
Recipe type: Cookies
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ cups high-quality dutch processed cocoa (can substitute natural cocoa)
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cups (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coffee liqueur (optional)
  • ⅔ cups white chocolate chips
  • ⅔ cup milk chocolate chips
  • ⅔ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar together in a stand mixer until no chunks of butter remain, and the texture is that of a thick paste.
  4. Beat in the eggs one by one, and add the vanilla and coffee liqueur (if using).
  5. Turn the speed to low and gradually mix in the dry ingredients. Stir until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.*
  7. Using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, scoop the dough onto the cookie sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Cool briefly on the cookie sheets, and then transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with a glass of milk.

  3. Lauren,
    I have coffee flavored vodka, do you think that would sub? I got two sample bottles of vodka from somewhere, one coffee and one coconut. I’m not a cocktail drinker, more beer and wine, so I figured I’d cook with them. I’m just waiting for the right recipe, and perhaps this is it.
