Fudgie Wudgies - SRC

Ever since I became a member of the Secret Recipe Club, I have been waiting and waiting to finally be assigned to Katrina's blog, Baking and Boys.  Not only is she the reason that I became a member of this wonderful club, but she is also a very good blogger friend of mine.  I even got to meet her and she is every bit as sweet as the treats that she makes.


Of course, I had been following her blog for quite a while, even before I knew her.  Her blog is just so fun to read as she talks about her beautiful family and her signature chocolate twists on her sweets.  I put a lot of stock into what she says.  If she mentions that a recipe was good, then I know it's good.  As a result, I've made quite a few things from her blog over the past years - Crunchy Nut Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies, Joanne Chang's Chocolate Chip Cookies (which are my all-time fave CCC), Marbled Peanut Butter Brownies, Cherry Ice Cream, and Spicy Peanut Butter Ice Cream - and they all get a double thumbs up from me.  This month's assignment gave me an excuse to make even more of the delicious things she's posted about and I couldn't wait to dive right in.

Now, if you know Katrina, then you also know about her proclaimed love for all things chocolate.  So, I just had to choose a recipe that would pay homage to that part of her personality.  And, what better recipe than her Fudgie Wudgies.  These are Katrina to a tee!  They have melted chocolate and cocoa powder in the dough, PLUS more chocolate chips added in for a triple chocolate dose.


These cookies are fantastic!  My family loved how they tasted.  They're exactly like brownies in cookie form from the crackly, papery top to the soft, chewy, fudginess inside.  I used regular cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate chips to make these, but I would love to make them again with dutch cocoa powder and a good brand of 70% chocolate to really get them chocolatey to the max.  Because, as I've learned from Katrina, there is never such a thing as too much chocolate.  

Fudgie Wudgies (from Baking and Boys)

1 3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips
10 Tbsp. unsalted butter
6 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. sugar

Preheat oven to 325F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Melt 1 c. chocolate chips with the butter in a glass, microwave safe dish in 20 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted.  Allow to cool 5 min.  Sift the flour, baking powder, cocoa, and salt together in a small bowl using a wire whisk.

Beat the eggs and vanilla with a wire whisk until combined.  Add the sugar to the egg mixture and blend until the mixture is thick.  Add the melted chocolate and whisk together.  Add the flour mixture and blend just until combined.  Stir in the 3/4 c. of chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.  Bake the cookies until they form a thin crust, about 14 min.
