A stack of Chocolate Cookies on a white plate by a glass of milk

These are the best Chocolate Cookies ever. I mean it. The credit comes from one of my amazing sisters. You see, I have two amazing sisters. My younger sister, Cara, lives with me right now (and enjoyed quite a few of these cookies) while she works as a CNA this summer at an assisted living center before starting a rigorous nursing program in the fall. Her work is hard, gross, and desperately needed. How awesome is she to even be willing to do that kind of work? I’ve got serious respect for CNAs and nurses.

And then there is my older sister, Jennifer, who is thrifty beyond measure, full of crafty coolness, and musically gifted to boot. I swear if I give her a dime she can magically turn it into a dollar. If you haven’t seen her blog yet, you should totally check it out. The Craft Patch is a great little blog for the frugally minded crafter. I take that back, you don’t even have to be a crafter to enjoy her blog because she has got tons of other cool stuff as well. One of my favorites is that she does a series called Pinterest Tested where she tests out popular, and often unbelievable pins to see if they actually work. I’m so glad she started doing that so I don’t have to waste my time figuring it out myself! My favorite is her tub cleaner. She tried to get me to try that cleaner for a long time before I gave in. I just couldn’t believe that it would actually work. Now I’ll never go back!

So what does this have to do with food, especially cookies? Well, Jennifer tested a bunch of different chocolate cookie recipes to find the perfect chocolate cookie. I’ve made a few adjustments to the method to simplify things a bit. Have you ever made a chocolate cookie recipe? A lot of them fail. Working with that much cocoa powder can result in dry clumps of chocolate mess. If you’ve tried and failed and subsequently sworn off chocolate cookie making, I urge you to think again! No, I plead with you! These chocolate cookies are perfect! They will not fail! I promise! Just follow these simple instructions (including the gallon of milk!)
