  • 1 1/2 cups butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 3 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup hot fudge sauce
  • powdered sugar for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light in color and fluffy in texture.
  • Add in the eggs, corn syrup and 1 tbsp of vanilla. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Next, add the flour, cocoa, cornstarch baking soda and salt. Mix until your chocolate cookie dough forms. The dough will be soft.
  • Divide the dough out into 12 equal portions, I like to use my 1/2 cup measuring cup to help divide the dough. You'll want to use a little less than 1/2 cup of dough to have 12 cookies.
  • Roll the cookie dough into a ball and then use your thumb to create a pocket in the middle of the cookie dough.
  • Spoon approx 1/2 tbsp of hot fudge into each pocket and then close the cookie dough around the hot fudge.
  • Slightly flatten the cookie so the cookie looks like a hockey puck.
  • Repeat with remaining cookie dough. Place 6 cookies per tray.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes. The cookie should start to crack and crinkle, it will spread slightly and the centers of the cookie should no longer look wet before taking them out of the oven.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for about 15 minutes.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.
