One Pot Chocolate Cake Cookies


My husband requested chocolate cookies today. Then I told him we were out of chips. Judging from his reaction, I don't think he has eaten a cookie without chocolate chips. That sent me straight to the kitchen where I made these. Spurred on by the amazing weather (natch) we have been having in NY this winter, one pot meals have continuously cranked out of my kitchen. Dessert and treats follow the same suit. These are just chocolatety enough and just sweet enough. You won't feel super guilty about eating a few of them either because of their relatively low sugar and butter amounts not to mention being egg free. The one bowl method can be blamed on not wanting to drag out the Kitchen-Aid and having only frozen butter on hand. I melted the butter on the stove and just stirred all the other ingredients into it. The dry ingredients were combined in a liquid measuring cup which does not count as a bowl. I think melting the butter contributed to their overall texture.
