February 2021 CoTM: Cocoverdose

Hiya Folks, 

We tend to always offer a chocolate based cookie for February for Valentines Day (if you're into that sort of thing) and we were REALLY excited to bring back ChocoLatte.  However, like most of the plans we have had, we ran into snags.  Turns out one of our fave ingredients has been discontinued : the cappuccino chip.  So, we did the Cocoverdose again.  We are VERY much looking forward to getting into the shop and mixing in some more new recipes into the mix.  I'm glad the Cocoverdose is a crowd pleaser, so I don't feel too bad bringing it back.   

Death by Chocolate anything is always a must order for me.  Triple chocolate cakes, I'm in.  So, before Top Shelf was a thing officially and I was tooling around with recipes in my own kitchen, I decided I would figure out how to get so much delicious chocolate into one cookie and that's how Cocoverdose was born.  For the dough base, we blend three kinds of cocoa - black, dutch process & natural cocoa and then for more chocolate we mix in three kinds of chocolate chips - dark, semi sweet & milk chips.  It's like SIX kinds of chocolate. 

It's one of my favorites that I make and my friend Felicia wrote the perfect description of the cookie when we launched:

So rich, so decadent, so shamelessly chocolatety...these will convert even the staunchest vanilla devotee. This swoon-worthy combo features three kinds of cocoa and three kinds of chocolate chips.  For those keeping count, that's six levels of incredibly chocolatey, chewy bliss in every bite, topped with a crunchy crown of sugar.  These make Oreos feel shame.

For folks that like chocolate as much as we do, keep an eye out for some chocolately flavors and gift sets hitting the site in February for Valentines Day Gifts - if that's your thing.
