Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Serves:Makes 36 cookies CarbsPerServing:~30 grams total Prep Time:1 hr Effort:Easy
.8 cups Atkins Bake Mix 2 Tbl. unsweetened chocolate 1 tsp baking powder 3/4 tsp salt 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter 1/2 cup sugar (splenda) 3 large eggs 1 lb bittersweet chocolate (I used 1 bag of LowCarb Success sugar free semi- sweet chocolate chips plus 3 PureDelite dark
chocolate bars, because that was what I had in my kitchen)
How to Prepare: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together bake mix, cocoa and baking powders and salt.
In a double boiler, melt 3/4 of the chocolate and all the butter; stir until smooth.
Remove chocolate mixture from heat and stir in sugar. Mix eggs in one by one. Combine with dry ingredients and mix until just combined. At this point, I mixed in the additional chocolate chips, though you may want to save them to sprinkle on the dough before baking.
Chill dough, covered in fridge, for 10-60 minutes.
Drop rounded tablespoon measures of dough about 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheet. Stud cookies with additional chocolate, if you didn't mix it into the batter earlier.
Cook for 10 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!! Cookies will have a cake-like texture.
These are great for chocolate lovers. I got the recipie off Epicurious.com (originally from Gourmet magazine) and altered it slightly for us low-carb lovers.
