Chelle Summer


Dark Chocolate Molasses Cookies 

Michelle Rusk

Because sometimes we need to mix things up. Slowly I'll be incorporating my Chef Chelle recipes here.


Makes 24 cookies


3.5 ounces dark chocolate bar

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

6 tablespoons vegetable oil

6 tablespoons butter, softened

¼ cup molasses

1 ½ teaspoons vanillas extract

1 large egg

2 cups brown rice flour

1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pulse dark chocolate bar in food processor until finely chopped, set aside. Place dark brown sugar, vegetable oil, and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add molasses, vanilla, and egg; beat until well combined. Combine flour and baking soda, stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until almost well combined. Add chocolate, beat at low speed until well combined. Spoon dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheets (parchment paper or non-stick spray). Press gently for flatter cookies. Bake 12-13 minutes or until the edges are barely browned. Cool cookies on the pan for 3 minutes and then place on a wire rack to cool.
