Every time I go on pinterest there are at least 3 chocolate chip cookie recipes that pop up claiming to be THE perfect chocolate chip cookie. I usually browse over the recipe searching for a magic ingredient or technique but haven’t found anything spectacular. Then one day I came across a blogger that adapted the famous New York Times cookie to include 4 ounces of grated unsweetened chocolate. I thought wow, she may be on to something, grated chocolate would be a sure way to guarantee an equal amount of chocolate in every bite. What more could you ask for? After looking over the entire recipe however I decided it was way too fussy and time consuming, after all it asked you to refrigerate the dough for up to 48 hours. I don’t know about you but when I am craving a perfect chocolate chip cookie the last thing I am going to do is sift flour and precisely measure only to have to wait two days to eat them. So in the end I resorted back to one of my go to recipes that requires no sifting or patience. I made a few adjustments here and there and just added the grated chocolate and they turned out fantastic… a bit crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside with the perfect amount of chocolate in each bite. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
After making these cookies two times this week I have to admit these are now my new favorite chocolate chip cookie! I have always loved this recipe, but I have to admit the shaved chocolate gives these cookies an all around better chocolate flavor. Having the chocolate pieces in the dough as well as the chunks of chocolate, make for the perfect amount of chocolate per bite of dough. A perfect 10 in my book! Thanks Ellen for another great recipe 😉
