Dark Chocolate Cookies with Molten Speculoos and Peanut Butter Filling

Chocolate cookies with molten filling

Chocolate Lava Fans, I have something else to impress you!! Molten Lava Cookies tht are SOOOO GOOODDDD. You just can’t stop at one. It’s best to eat them within one hour after it has been baked. That way you get to enjoy that warm Ooze from the filling as well as those dark melty chocolate chips.

I won’t blame you if you lick your fingers clean. These cookies are actually pretty easy to make. All you need is your favourite Cookie Recipe. I have tons of favourites on my website. But if I had to pick, I’ll go with my Dark Chocolate Avocado Cookies (Healthier cookie) or my All time fav NY Chocolate Chip Cookie . After you have settled on your Dark Chocolate Cookie recipe, be sure to freeze a few dollops of peanut butter/speculoos or your favourite nut butter spread. I freeze them overnight to ensure they are well set before I make my cookies

  8. Place Cookie on baking sheets with each cookie being about 5cm apart since the cookie will spread when baked. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Hello! I saw that you used milk in your recipe but this is not specified in the ingredient list. May I know how much milk was used? Thanks!
