Baker’s Tip
Simple variations are easy to create from this recipe. You can add nuts, caramel (as shown), mini marshmallows, a teaspoon of instant coffee, or some cinnamon to the recipe, and even place a maraschino cherry into the center of each cookie.
  1. Cream sugars and butter together.
  2. Add cream cheese, egg and maraschino cherry juice (or water); mix.
  3. Add baking soda and power; mix.
  4. Add cocoa and flours; mix slowly.
  5. Add chocolate chips and mix until evenly dispersed.
  6. Add any optional ingredients at this time: nuts, caramel, mini marshmallows, and so forth.
  7. Use a small spoon and drop one inch mounds onto greased cookie sheet.
  8. The baking time is critical to determining the crispness of the cookies:

    Bake at 350°F for 12 minutes if you like a soft cookie.

    Bake at 350°F for 14 minutes to have a less soft and more crispy cookie.

    Finally, if you want the cookie to be completely crispy and crunchy, bake at 350°F for 20 minutes — making a cookie that is perfect for the cookie-crumb centers in popular ice cream cake recipes.
