Back in the fall I made Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies– they are delicious and amazing and I knew I wanted to do a chocolate version. I’m so glad I did because they came out just as good!

These cookies are so easy! Everything is mixed in one bowl, there is no chilling the dough, and they taste amazing! They stay thick and fudgy and don’t spread at all when cooking. They don’t have any eggs in them which is nice if there are any allergies you’re working around or maybe you’re just out of eggs and want a cookie!

They are one of my favorite cookies to make because they’re hard to mess up. Only a handful of ingredients that come together to create such a tasty treat! These are best served cold (like regular cheesecake), so make them and store them in the fridge. One bite of that cool, fudgy cookie and you will be in love!

If you love chocolate (who doesnt?) then you will love these cookies! These are so easy and delicious!
