Two Chocolate Overload Cookies.
Why, as a matter of fact I do!
I just did this order as a birthday present for a lady near Dallas. All shipped out and on their way, as we speak. But, in the meantime I am going to let you in a deep, dark secret…actually a deep, dark CHOCOLATE secret 😉

Chocolate fans keep reading, you don’t want to miss this…Go pour yourself a glass of milk now because, trust me, you’ll need it!
I am not a huge fan of chocolate cookies, cakes, cupcakes…really any chocolate baked good…I know ~ BLASPHEMY! I DO, however, enjoy with incredulous delight, chocolate candies…I’m talking about pretty much anything that comes wrapped up in cellophane, foil or in a truffle box (hint, hint honey!) as well as chocolate ice cream, which I believe is far superior to plain old vanilla (please insert comment or expletive here you vanilla ice cream people). Not sure why I don’t like chocolate in baked form, but for some reason I will choose a vanilla cupcake any day of the week over its chocolate cousin.
But with all rules there is an exception…and these cookies, my friends, are the exception to the rule.
This is the most chocolaty cookie you’ll ever hope to enjoy.

The recipe has been around the block a few times, actually I think it is a Southern Living cookie, but I scratched the recipe down on a little piece of paper from a friend and don’t know it’s exact origins, plus I adapted a few parts to suit my liking. My friend called it a “Chocolate Gob” but since I don’t have any plans of calling a cookie a “gob” I renamed it…
“Chocolate Overload”

Here’s the recipe for your chocolate fix…save it for “that time of the month” it’ll help you get through 😉

  1. I've done the oreo-in-cookie thing and it's amazing, but MOUNDS?! That combination just sounds too good to be true.
