Did this name stop you in your tracks? Well, yeah. I know. It’s not like I’m immune to such enticing words all strung together. The first time I made these my husband was on a low-carb diet. I haven’t seen that much naked desire in anyone’s eyes since our honeymoon. Maybe not even then.
Fork in the Road: A creamy peanut butter filling turns these into very special, rich sandwich cookies.

Taste and TextureChewy, Chocolatey, Sweet
Type of DishChocolate Dessert, Cookie, Dessert
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher or coarse salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, if you have it; otherwise leave the baking sheet ungreased.
Place the butter, unsweetened chocolate, and chocolate chips in a small saucepan and melt over low heat, stirring frequently, just until everything is smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Beat the eggs and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy and light yellow, about 1 minute. Beat in the vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, blend the flour mixture into the egg mixture in 3 batches, blending after each addition, just until barely combined. Add the chocolate mixture to the bowl and beat just until combined; the dough will be very thick.
Scoop out heaping tablespoons of the dough and create 12 mounds on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the tops are crackly and the edges are set, 9 to 11 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and firmly tap the pan against the counter. Let the cookies sit for 1 minute on the baking sheet (they will sink slightly), then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat to bake three sheets of cookies in all.
