Random Craving- Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Sometimes I think I might be pregnant from the random cravings I get; but rest assured I'm not, and this time these cravings are very well justified. Yes that mouthwatering image above; known to us mortals as "Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies" simply because it's true name that was coined by the ancient Cookie people cannot be translated into any spoken language; as the sheer amount of mouth watering that would result from "the name" would lead to instant dehydration shock and eventually death (think of it that what CANNOT be named).

Regardless I'm willing to put my own safety and well being on the line for the sake of the greater good; so for anyone who loves me enough to make them for me follow the break to get the recipe -Warning I;m not responsible for any self mutilations (such as chewing your on tongue off or biting your fingers in anticipation) nor am I to be held responsible for any form of Diabetes that you might acquire.

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed tightly
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 Tbs. vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, divided
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and spray the muffin cups in a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips into a plastic ziploc bag and seal the bag shut.  Arrange the chocolate chips so that they’re positioned in one layer within the bag.  Laying the bag flat in the microwave, heat the chocolate chips for 30 seconds.  Turn the bag over and heat for an additional 15-20 seconds or until the chips are completely melted.  Set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, using a hand mixer, cream the butter and both sugars in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add in the flour, salt and baking soda and mix until just combined.  Fold in the remaining cup of chocolate chips.
  5. Using half of the cookie dough, scoop 1 1/2-2 Tbs. of dough, flatten it into a small disk, and place it in the bottom of a muffin cup.  (You should get 10 cookies out of the mix)
  6. Cut a small tip off of the ziploc bag and squeeze a bit of the melted chocolate over the cookie.
  7. Scoop out another disk of cookie dough and cover the melted chocolate, forming a sandwich in each muffin cup.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are just brown and the top appears done.  As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, run a knife around the edges of the cookie to loosen.  Allow to cool completely before serving.
  9. When serving, you can also microwave the cookie for 15 seconds in order to remelt the middle of the cookie and warm it through.
