Is it possible to freeze them?
Yes, the baked cookies may be frozen. They’ll stay around 3 months in the freezer if you keep them in an airtight container. They’re ideal for creating ahead of time for the holidays or other special occasions. Remove them from the freezer and allow them to defrost at room temperature for about 1-2 hours before serving. You may eat them at room temperature or reheat them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds once they’ve defrosted.
How long do they keep their softness?
They keep fresh and soft for 4 days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

- 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 cups bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of white sugar
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- 3/4 cup flour (all-purpose)
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons powdered espresso
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Combine the butter and finely chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 15 seconds at a time, swirling carefully in between, until the chocolate is fully smooth and melted. Overheating the chocolate will cause it to burn. Remove from the equation.
Combine the eggs and sugars in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. 3 minutes on high speed, beat till light and pale yellow in color.
Slowly add the chocolate and butter mixture to the mixer on low speed, mixing until absolutely smooth. Turn off the mixer.
Combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and espresso powder in a mixing bowl. Mix until everything is well blended. It will be a soft dough.
Do not let the dough rest to achieve the unique glossy topping! Use a normal size cookie scoop to spoon out the cookies onto the prepared cookie sheets, spacing them out about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the sides of the cookies have cracked and are firm, but the inside is still mushy. Allow to cool completely before eating.
Cook them all at once if you're using a big baking sheet, since this is the best way to produce the nicest, shiniest crinkle tops. Otherwise, scoop all of the cookies right away and bake them on separate cookie sheets.
These are best served somewhat warm the first day, but they will keep in an airtight container for several days or in the freezer for several weeks.
