Chewy Molasses meets Chocolate Chip in this unique holiday cookie recipe

Chewy Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Ok, so these really shouldn’t be called chocolate chip cookies, but chocolate fleck cookies or shaved chocolate cookies just doesn’t have the same ring to it. They are first and foremost a chewy molasses cookie… with some finely grated chocolate mixed in.

Ideally you want to grate the chocolate with a cheese grater, or shave flakes off the bar using a sharp knife (don’t chop… shave). These thin flakes of chocolate will almost melt into the cookie as it bakes, giving it a rich depth of flavor without interrupting the chewy goodness.

It’s the same way I infused extra chocolate into my salt and pepper sable cookies: again, the texture of the cookie is best when uninterrupted by chips.
