Whether you are an experienced baker, or new to the game, these Chocolate Chunk Cookies are going to easily become a new favorite for you and your family. They are perfectly chewy and fully loaded with TWO types of chocolate…yup, I went there! The dough for these cookies is nice and thick, which allows the cookies to keep their shape and not melt into a puddle on your baking sheet…we have all been there…the “Best EVER” cookie recipe that turns out to be a disaster in your kitchen. I promise you, these cookies deliver on every possible level. Taste, Look, Texture and even Ease of Making.
I chose to make my cookies a little bit smaller as I prefer to have more to go around, but you can easily make them double the size for a super cookie that would be great for dunking! Now, I don’t know about you, but there is nothing I love more than a warm plate Chocolate Chunk Cookies and a tall glass of cold milk after a long day…shall we get to it then!?
Best Ever Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies
- 1 c Salted Butter melted and cooled...NOT hot!
- 1/2 c Brown Sugar lightly packed (I use golden brown sugar not dark)
- 1 c White Sugar
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 3 c Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 c Semi Sweet Chocolate Chunks
- 1/2 c White Chocolate Chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In stand mixer beat together the butter with both sugars until creamy and smooth. Add in your vanilla and one egg at a time, mix for about 10 seconds to just combine.
In small bowl sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to wet mixture and mix until combined. It will form a thick dough ball (this is what you want!).
Add chocolate chunks and incorporate with a wood spoon. Do not over mix your dough.
Roll dough into small balls (about 1"-1.5") and arrange on your baking sheet, gently pressing down into a disk shape.
Bake for 10-12 minutes (depends on your oven so keep an eye!) They should be slightly golden but still fairly pale, this is what makes them chewy and delicious.
Allow to cool and ENJOY!
For the chocolate, I just buy the bakers chocolate and cut it into chunks myself! You can buy them in chunks already, but I find it more cost effective to do it myself (plus then I get a variety of sizes!).
DO NOT OVER MIX the dough, that is the key for making a deliciously soft cookie!
These Chocolate Chunk Cookies will definitely be making it to my Christmas trays this year! There is something about a classic cookie that I think everyone loves.
