Chocolate Mudslides

It's time for Magazine Mondays people! For this week, I chose Chocolate Mudslides still from the Martha Stewart Holiday 2005 magazine. What are Mudslides you ask? These are almost flour less chocolate cookies loaded with chocolate chunks. What's not to like? ^_^ Right? Well..I'm 50-50 in this thing, I'm not sure if there is something wrong with recipe or something but I found it too sticky when scooping it out and shaping it. I tried making it into small cookies because of all the chocolate I was afraid it might get too overwhelmingly sweet. And it turns out that I was right. It was too sweet specially with the semi sweet chocolate chunks the I used instead of the milk chocolate the recipe called for which I can only imagine would be much too sweet.
After 2 batches of using my small ice cream scooper, I got fed up with it, the cookies turn out unappetizing and actually look like a poop! pardon those who are eating while reading this. I set the offending tiny scooper aside and grab my handy all purpose go to scooper and voila! an appetizing looking cookies are born. But I caution you, using a bigger scooper yields a much less cookies. The recipe said it would yield FOUR DOZENS! Absolutely impossible! Maybe with the tiny scooper yes but with the normal size scooper that actually makes this cookies look edible a big fat N-O. I got roughly a dozen and a half of those. I know so few but these are so overwhelmingly chocolaty that I think after a few days of these you'd probably had your chocolate fix.
To help wash down these babies a good tall glass of milk just hit the right spot. Didn't have a glass handy so a mug will do. Next time I'll use dark chocolates. If you want to give this recipe are try drop by Martha's and give it a try.
