I made these last night to kick off my Christmas cookie baking. They were really easy and other than melting the chocolate and chilling the batter, they didn't take much time at all. I had a huge "Pound Plus" block of 54% Belgian dark chocolate from Trader Joe's, so I used 13 1-ounce squares (= 1 1/2 cups plus a little extra) of that instead of the 60% Godiva. For the other 1/3 cup chocolate, I just used semi-sweet chocolate chips (also from Trader Joe's - I'm a walking advertisement for them).
I chilled the first batch for about 15 minutes before dropping by tablespoons onto a baking sheet. I baked them for 7 minutes, but they actually were over done at that time (I have a gas oven, so not sure if that makes a difference). The next batch I chilled for about 30 minutes and they dropped more easily onto the sheet, and baked them for 6 minutes and they were PERFECT. So soft and gooey inside! They were pretty flat but I guess that's how they're supposed be with so little flour in them? Didn't exactly look like the puffed-up cookies in Godiva's picture :) But amazing nonetheless. Sprinkled with sea salt AFTER so that the salt didn't melt, and it stayed on the cookies no problem. To-die-for good. Will definitely be making these again.
