Double Fudge Cookie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Smashed Cookies


So I just went for a run.


Well it was more like a walk/run. But it’s still a pretty big deal. Because I haven’t been for a run since like, 2010.

Not even kidding.


Once upon a time, I was one of those weird people who was addicted to the gym.

The story goes that when I finished high school I lived in Europe for a year. I spent most of my time drinking. And eating. I danced a lot too, but I’m not sure that dancing with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other counts as exercise?

No? Okay then.


Not surprisingly, I put on a bit of weight. So I came back home with a resolve to lose it all. And I did. And in the process, I became addicted to the gym. I used to go like, five times a week. And when I wasn’t at the gym I was going for runs. Which was crazy, because I was never really an “exercise person” before that.

My friends all thought I had lost the plot.

And then a whole bunch of things happened in my life at once, I went on a holiday to America and my exercise habit was broken. Since then, I managed the odd Zumba class, but I got over that eventually too.


So I’m not sure what came over me today, to make me actually put on my trainers and go for a run.

Maybe it’s the refreshingly warm spring weather that we have going on today.

Maybe it’s the fact that I ate a few too many of these cookies and felt a little guilty. Because I promise you, if you make these cookies, you’ll eat a few too many too.


These cookies take the best of both worlds (classic, chewy chocolate chip cookie and dark, fudgy double chocolate chip cookie) and smashes them together.

So you don’t have to choose anymore.

But be prepared that you might need to go for a run afterwards too, okay?

For the chocolate chip cookie dough
Adapted from Baking Illustrated.

165g unsalted butter, melted and cooled until warm (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups + 2 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1  cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) and line a few trays with baking paper.

To make the double fudge cookie dough, using a wooden spoon, mix the melted butter and both sugars together in a large bowl.

Add the egg and the egg yolk, mixing well between each addition. Stir in the vanilla.

Mix in the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt until just incorporated. Finally, stir through the chocolate chips. Set aside while you make the other dough.

Form each dough into 24 balls, using a large tablespoon of dough per ball, so you have a total of 48 balls of cookie dough.

Break each ball of dough in half and press together one half of chocolate chip cookie dough and one half of double fudge cookie dough, with the broken side facing up.


Arrange the cookies on the prepared baking trays and bake for 10 minutes. Makes 48 smashed cookies.

23 Thoughts on “Double Fudge Cookie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Smashed Cookies

  1. They look wonderful! I’m in that stage of wanting to exercise all the time at the moment (which is so not me!) and I’m dreading the day I stop and put all the weight back on. In the meantime though, I think I’m allowed to eat plenty of these!

  2. Wow. Just wow. Can’t wait to try these double-identity cookies.

  3. Great i always had a hard time choosing between double chocolate and chocolate chip cookies!

  5. Mmm…I’ve been meaning to try that technique for breaking the dough in half and putting the cut sides together…what a brilliant idea to smash two different kinds of cookies together! Satisfies both cravings :)

    I used to hate running in high school, and then really got into it the past couple of years. It’s weird how that happens! I haven’t done much since I got pregnant, but I hope there will be time and energy to do so when Ryan is a little older :)

    Hope you’re having a great weekend, Natasha!

    • It is such a great technique! It is straight out of Baking Illustrated, and makes their Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies look super perfect, like they’re out of a bakery!
      It is weird about the exercise isn’t it? It’s like an addiction, a craving for the great feeling you have afterwards!
      Thanks! hope you had a good weekend too :-D

  9. These look so neat! Not having to chose is nice.

    I hate exercising. I really really do. But after seeing the pictures of us together, I’ve stopped eating only sweets and began exercising and I’ve lost like 5 kilos. And that was only in 5 weeks. Yay! So exercise isn’t all that bad. But you definitely don’t need to lose weight so I guess your heart will thank you later but not giving you a heart attack at 50. :)

    • Oh Erin, you make me laugh! You stopped eating only sweets? You were eating ONLY sweets?! Haha. Congrats on losing all that weight so quickly that’s amazing! All the sugar can’t be good for me so the occasional run can’t be a bad thing :-)

      • Yes. :( Starting the week you were in Berlin, I basically only ate cookies, brownies, and ice cream for several weeks. And before you were here, I was at about 50%. Terrible. But I’ve been… uh, healed! Although today isn’t so good. Half a batch of apple fritters + upcoming fried chicken and mac and cheese. Oh well. It’s fall. I can celebrate! Do you hate everyone for having fall when you don’t? Or for making nothing but pumpkin and apple recipes? Because that’s me. With the recipes. Nothing but apple.

        • Haha no I don’t hate everyone for having fall when I don’t. Because I have fall when they don’t, you know? But you know what, that whole baking-for-the-season thing, like especially the fall baking, must be totally American. Because I just bake whatever I want whenever I feel like it. Apples are in store all year round. And if I want some summer berries in winter I hit up the freezer aisle. You know?
          And I totally can’t believe / absolutely love that you ate baked goods ALL THE TIME!!!
