These moist chocolate cookies with cocoa powder are so delicious & easy to make.  One bite is enough to stop your chocolate craving!

Moist Chocolate Cookies

Today I am here with my moist, chocolate cookies.  If you crave chocolate and you don’t have it, you should make these cookies immediately.  They are very soft, moist cookies just taste like souffles especially when they are warm.  They are crispy at the edges, moist in the middle.  Even one cookie is enough to stop your chocolate craving.

It is as easy as my other recipes, takes only 10 minutes to make.  They stay 8 minutes in the oven until the cookies slightly set.  When you remove the cookies from the oven,  the cookies will be too soft to handle.  So you need to let them cool for almost 10 minutes on the baking sheet to be firm enough. Actually, you may think of taking one of the cookies onto a plate before letting it cool on the baking sheet and top it with heavy cream like a souffle which I can totally understand. 🙂

The amount of cocoa makes them rich chocolate cookies.

So let’s see how I make them:

First, I put the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda in a small bowl and mix well. I set aside.

Steps of Making Moist Chocolate Cookies: Mixing cocoa, baking soda and flour.

As usual I melt the butter halfway and take it from the heat and stir till melted.  This way the butter cools quickly.    This is important because hot butter shouldn’t cook the egg.

Steps of Making Moist Chocolate Cookies: Melting the butter halfway.

Then I put the sugar in a medium bowl and add the melted butter and mix well.   I add in the egg and vanilla and stir well.  Finally, I add the flour mixture in 2 batches and mix well. You can use a spatula or a spoon to mix the flour easily.

Steps of Making Moist Chocolate Cookies: Mixing sugar and butter and adding the egg and vanilla. Adding the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mixing well.

The mixture looks sticky but it is easy to make balls out of this dough.  If you want, you can use an ice cream scoop.  I roll the dough into 52-53 gram balls (almost 2 and 1/2 tablespoons) and place them on the baking sheet covered with parchment paper.Steps of Making Moist Chocolate Cookies: Making balls out of the dough.

I bake them for 8 minutes until the cookies slightly set.    When you touch the top of the cookies, they shouldn’t be wet but they will look very soft.   However, you should take them from the oven to keep their moistness and let them cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes until the bottom of the cookies are firm enough.   The cookies will look puffy.  I give their nice shape by slightly pressing the cookies with a back of spoon. You can use your hands too.
