Craving Chocolate?

I made these....


                                                             Saucepan Fudge Drops

                                                             1 cup all-purpose flour
                                                            1/4 teaspoon baking soda
                                                                1/8 teaspoon salt
                                                         5 tablespoons unsalted butter
                                                  1/3 cup  unsweetened cocoa powder
                                                          1/2 cup granulated sugar
                                              1/3 cup light brown sugar, tightly packed
                                                       1/3 cup buttermilk or yogurt
                                                         1 teaspoon vanilla extract


 
Preheat oven to 350 F and place racks in the upper and lower
thirds of the oven.  Line two large baking sheets with parchment
paper.

Whisk flour, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl, and
set aside.  Place the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and melt. 
Once the butter is melted and sizzling, remove from heat and whisk in cocoa
until smooth.  Add both sugars and stir until blended - the mixture will be
stiff and sandy at this point. Stir in yogurt or buttermilk and vanilla.  Add the dry
ingredients and stir gently until just combined. Scoop rounded tablespoons of
dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake the
cookies until they look dry on top and are cracked all over, but are still
slightly soft when pressed, about 10-12 minutes. Rotate baking sheets from top
to bottom and front to back about half way through to ensure even baking.  Slide
the parchment, cookies and all onto racks to cool.

Apparently from this  
That I must get my hands on.



Seriously quick to make and the texture is insane.
Crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle.
Not something you get often with thin cookies like this.
Only problem is they are all gone now.
The kids loved them too...
