These “Double Chocolate” Chocolate – Chip Cookies are every Chocolate Lover’s Dream! A fudgy, chewy chocolate cookie loaded with chocolate chips.
I don’t know about you, but when I have a craving for something sweet, chocolate is usually the answer.
I don’t make these cookies often. As simple as they are to bake – I find them way to habit forming. Like, oh my, I somehow just ate half a dozen!
This recipe is simple as simple can be. I’ve baked many chocolate cookies before and prefer to work with a recipe that uses cocoa powder versus baking chocolate. Why, you ask? I usually don’t keep baking chocolate on hand. When I want to bake, I want to bake. Running to the store for an ingredient dampens the mood.
I’ve baked chocolate cookies with brownie mix & cake mix – they simply do not compare to the richness of “made from scratch” cookies.
Use whatever chocolate chips you prefer. This batch I used a mix of semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate & white chocolate. My kids let me know they prefer the semi-sweet version.
You’ll get this cookie dough mixed up and ready to bake in 10-15 minutes. These “Double Chocolate” Chocolate-Chip Cookies are an easy & delicious bake!
Hope you enjoy!
