Some days you need a heapin’ help of chocolate: STAT!
Chocolate Bomb Cookies were built for those kind of days.
They’re actually my favorite cookie (and, at the moment, Sweet E’s) in the entire world.
THE ENTIRE WORLD.
I mean – LOOK AT IT!
Chocolate Bomb Cookies
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, unsalted, melted
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla – preferably homemade
2/3 cup buttermilk
14 – 16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use a mix of regular sized and minis)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the cocoa powder and melted butter until very smooth. Stir in the sugar, vanilla, and buttermilk until well combined.
Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture in thirds, stirring each time just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Scoop cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheets by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2″ apart.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are puffed, edges are set, and center is still moist.
Place cookie sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes, then remove cookies onto wire racks to cool completely.
Store tightly covered.

These are currently in my must have rotation, my go-to if I need to bring dessert to a get-together, or my gotta-haves for a personal high-five to myself after any kind of day.
These are genuine slap-yo-momma good (IT’S JUST AN EXPRESSION! DON’T ACTUALLY SLAP HER!).
I think you know me well enough now to know I wouldn’t, couldn’t, SHAN’T!, steer you wrong.
You know what to do…GET TO BAKING!
