So the past few weeks have been kinda crazy. I had made a long list of plans about all the things I would do and catch up on once my internship was done, but I haven’t done many of them.
Why, you ask?. Because The Muslim Girl has pretty much taken over my whole life. If I’m not blogging, I’m trying to promote the site on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. Managing all of those accounts, plus my personal ones has been kinda crazy (and I’m kind of losing my mind -_-).
Add on this the fact that my grandma, who lives with us, had surgery a few days ago, and the general distraction that is my home, and I haven’t been getting much done. 🙁 The new book that I was supposed to finally start writing this summer remains trapped in thoughts in my (foggy) brain and books remain untouched on my bedside table, since apparently I’m too distracted to even read.
So what exactly do I have time for, other than blogging? Baking, of course! I have somehow been keeping my promise to make one new thing every week and I have faithfully kept my promise. 🙂
As some of you might know, I’ve got a long list of things I want to try and make this summer, known as my Summer Food Bucket list on Pinterest. This recipe wasn’t technically on the list. I only discovered it a few days before I made it. I saw the picture on Pinterest and knew I had to make them right away!
Described as outrageously chocolatey, with a cake-like texture, I knew that all my other recipes would have to wait while I made this one. And I’m so glad I did! Crinkly on top, with an ooey-gooey centre, these Crinkly Chocolate Cookies were a hit! Check them out!
The trick with these Crinkly Chocolate Cookies is the melted chocolate. I’ve never used melted chocolate in a cookie recipe before, but boy, can you taste it! The cookies are incredibly chocolatey and the melted chocolate provides a richness and depth of flavour.
It’s important that you don’t burn the chocolate when melting it in the beginning of the recipe. Melt the butter and chocolate until it’s just melted, with some solid chips still visible. Stirring it for a minute will melt the chocolate completely. You don’t want your chocolate to be too runny, so it’s important to do this in the beginning so the chocolate has time to set and cool down.
I also found that the dough was too soft so I decided to refrigerate it, which solidified the dough nicely, which ensured thick, puffy crinkly cookies.
These crinkly chocolate cookies are best eaten a few minutes after they’ve come out of the oven, with the chocolate chips melting in your mouth and running all over your hands. Paired with a tall, ice cold glass of milk, these cookies are perfect for chocolate-lovers!
So try these crinkly chocolate cookies out today! You won’t be sorry 🙂
