Chewy double chocolate chip cookies that are the softest you’ll ever try. Dark chocolate with chocolate chips and as soft as a brownie, delicious!
Ok so my weakness is dessert, chocolate more specifically. I love ending a meal with something decadent and these simple and delicious chewy double chocolate chip cookies do the trick every time! Ooey and gooey just like a batch of brownies (but in a cookie form), they are really easy to make. These cocoa powder cookies are just that, super rich…..with an added pop of chocolate with chocolate chips inside! There just isn’t a limit when it comes to chocolate really, let’s be honest. 😉
I know…. they are as delicious as they look! The chewiest dark chocolate cookies with chocolate chips you’ve probably ever had, and made with simple ingredients. We love baking together. Especially when my kids are off of school or on the weekends we are always thinking of something new to try. While we’re baking it gives us an opportunity to talk about when I was little and baked chocolate chip cookies with my mom using some of the same ingredients I now share with them. I was also given the opportunity to tour the Hershey’s factory last year and now I have those memories to share too…such an amazing experience that was. It’s a great way to reminisce and create new memories. (affiliate links present)
These are the two types of chocolate you’ll need:
Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chewy double chocolate chip cookies that are the softest you'll ever try. Dark chocolate with chocolate chips and as soft as a brownie, delicious!
- 10 tbsp butter, softened
- 1 c sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 c flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/8 c unsweetened dark cocoa (a bit less than 1/2 c., can use closer to 1/2 if you want it really dark chocolate flavor)
- 1/2 c chocolate chips
- 1/4 c finely chopped nuts optional
Combine wet ingredients in 1 bowl, dry in another.
Stir both until well mixed, then slowly add dry ingredients in with butter mixture.
Mix until well combined, then add chocolate chips and mix, fold in nuts if desired.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 9 minutes.
You want them very soft so do not over bake them, they will continue to cook a bit when left on pan for a few minutes. Put on cooling rack after set for a few minutes. Enjoy. Makes 12-14.
You really don’t want to over bake these because it’s all about the chewiness. To do this you need to take them out earlier than you normally would, 9 minutes is just perfect for us. They will stiffen up a bit when left on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transitioning them to a cooling rack, and when completely cool these chewy double chocolate chip cookies will maintain a moist consistency even into the next day (if there are any left)!
