These cookies are a bit more work than your average cookies, or at least my average cookies, but they are so rich and divine that it really is worth what seems like a fair bit of hassle. These particular cookies pictured are actually made from a leftover log I had in the freezer from the cookie exchange that I had never baked. They were still as awesome after sitting in the freezer for a month as they were the first day. In fact I had all but forgotten what a pain in my arse they were that they may have even been better this time around.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Ghiradelli Cookies
For the past two years we have thrown a Cookie Exchange party around Christmas. Everyone seems to be in the mood for baked goods and who couldn't use a few more cookie recipes to try out. The first year I was going to make Snickerdoodles but decided at the last minute to make Oatmeal cookies that we christened 'Jake Just Got a New Haircut Cookie' from that period of time when every new baked good was given a name depending on what had happened that day. This past year I was going to make Snickerdoodles and then my husband suggested I make these cookies that I had taken for a test run the week before the Exchange. They were pretty fabulous so I was easily swayed.
