Sure, we love chocolate chip cookies, but sometimes those chips just aren't enough—you want more. That's when a truly chocolatey chocolate cookie does the trick. From espresso-chocolate sandwich cookies to Nutella-stuffed chocolate numbers, here are a dozen chocolate cookie recipes we love.
Nutella Dream Cookies: These cookies have a soft and cakey chocolate exterior that's studded with chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts—and a core of rich Nutella.
Chocolate Espresso Buzz Cookies: Melted dark chocolate in the powder, mocha buttercream in the middle—these sandwich cookies deliver on both chocolate and coffee flavor.
The Fauxreo: Try your hand at making Oreos at home: nothing refined, nothing fancy, just deliciously processed-tasting chocolate-and-cream fun.
Chocolate Chubbies: "Not really a cookie or a brownie, these Chocolate Chubbies from Sarabeth Levine's Sarabeth's Bakery are somewhere in between."
Chocolate Mint Thumbprints: "Once the cookies bake, they're filled with a super easy peppermint-spiked white chocolate ganache that's spooned into the thumbprints and chilled until they set."
Fudge Cookie and Mint Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches: "The cookies for this sandwich are somewhat like a traditional ice cream sandwich cookie, but with a much more intense chocolate flavor." Sandwich them around mint ice cream.
Chocolate Log Cookies: "Though they might resemble baby Bûche de Noëls, these sweet treats are all cookie: a deep, dark, chocolaty crumbly and buttery cookie smothered in chocolate frosting."
Gluten-Free Salted Marcona Almond Cookies: Looking for a gluten-free option? These super-rich chocolate cookies are "part brownie, part cookie," with a Marcona almond pressed into the center of each one.
Chocolate Crinkles: Chewy, chocolatey, and dead simple.
Chocolate Ginger Molasses Cookies: "By adding both cocoa powder and chocolate to snappy ginger-molasses cookie recipe the cookies have deep, bold flavors of warm spices and chocolate."
Chocolate Turtle Cookies: Pecan-rolled chocolate cookies with a caramel-cream filling.
Bourbon Balls: "A decidedly grown-up no-bake cookie... the dough is a mixture of bourbon macerated raisins, chopped pecans, and crushed chocolate wafer cookies spiced up with a warm mix of cloves, ginger and cinnamon."
