These Eggless Dark Chocolate Cookies are glorious. They’re super loaded with all the rich chocolate you would ever want.
A few weeks ago, we bought some “vegan” chocolate cookies in the store and guess what happened? Our little one had an allergic reaction. It is not the first time this happens to us. It also happened when she ate a “vegan” cupcake made in a “vegan” bakery. Conclusion: I will not trust anything that is not made by me.
Unfortunately, when it comes to food allergies we can afford to take our chances!!
So, I am preparing for the cookies season coming up (YAY) with these amazing Eggless Dark Chocolate Cookies.
The cookies are easy to mix up with everyday ingredients.
I am completely smitten by this chocolate cookie recipe and I think you will love it too! Oh, and there is sea salt on top because that is a MUST if you ask me!
How to melt chocolate:
Stove: Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set the bowl over a gently simmering water in a saucepan. Stir constantly until the chocolate and butter are melted. Remove from heat and set aside.
Microwave: Place chocolate in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Run the microwave for 20 sec. Stir. Run it again for 20 more sec. Stir. Return it to the microwave and repeat until small lumps remain, remove and continue to stir to complete melting. Don’t set more than 20-seconds at the time to prevent scorching. Set aside.
How to Freeze Cookies:
Prepare the dough as usual. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop out cookie dough mounds onto the baking sheet. Freeze until hard. Transfer the frozen dough mounds to a freezer plastic bag or airtight container. Store in the freezer.
How to bake frozen cookie dough:
Bake frozen cookies without thawing. Simply place the frozen, pre-scooped cookie dough onto a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, and bake for 3 – 5 minutes longer than the original recipe recommends.
