Double Chocolate Cookies with chocolate chips are an easy homemade dessert. The cookies are perfect for any holiday, afternoon snack, to add to a school lunch, or just to munch on.
Around here, we love Subway’s double chocolate chip cookies and the kids always request them when we get a sub.
These double chocolate cookies are very similar to Subway’s cookies, but still, have a flavor of their own.
If you love this recipe, you’ll love these sweetened condensed milk chocolate chip bars.
My oldest is in basketball camp this week, and he came home last night worn out and wanted some cookies. Of course, pretty much any excuse is good enough for me to make cookies, especially for one of the kiddos.
This is an easy chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, as well. I love easy recipes and you can whip up this up and have them in the oven baking in just a few minutes.
Double Chocolate Cookies
Recipe and printable instructions listed below
Add the softened butter to a medium-sized bowl. If you’re like me and you forgot to set the butter out, or you decide to make the cookies on a whim, that’s ok.
I put the butter in the bowl and microwaved it for about 15 seconds. You don’t want to microwave it to the point of melting only to the point of getting a little bit soft.
Add the brown sugar to the butter and mix both together.
We had a conversation not too long ago, here at the house, about whether or not brown sugar is better for you than white sugar.
In my post, What Makes A Cookie Chewy? I shared that brown sugar is simply white sugar with added sugarcane molasses. So, it’s not nutritionally better, it just has a little bit of a deeper flavor.
Brown sugar is an ingredient that will help keep cookies chewy because molasses attracts moisture, and, who doesn’t love a chewy cookie?

Add the egg and mix. Egg yolks are another ingredient that adds moisture to cookies.
So, how do eggs act in baking? The yolks help add fat to the cookie and the whites help strengthen it. In essence, eggs are helping hold the cookie together.
Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in another bowl.
Once you’ve sifted the dry ingredients, add them to the wet ingredients. Mix everything together.
Mmm…are you getting excited? I am!
Add the white and chocolate chips and mix them into the batter. You know this is the best part. It’s all happiness from here on out.
You can use one or the other if you’re not a big fan of semi-sweet or white chocolate chips. But, the combination of the two is divine. Trust me.
Scoop the dough onto the cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
(I use a stoneware pan that I’ve had for years, so it doesn’t need to be greased. But, if you have a metal pan, you will need to grease it before adding the cookies onto the sheet to bake).
You can use a cookie scoop for larger cookies, or a spoonful for a smaller cookie.
Once I take the cookies out of the oven, I always leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes. If you don’t you’ll end up with a blobby mess. I will still eat a blobby chocolate mess (no question there), but they just won’t look as pretty.
Double chocolate cookies
These cookies tend to spread a bit more, but they are absolutely rich and wonderful to eat.
How do you keep cookies soft?
After the cookies have cooled off, place them into an airtight container with a slice of bread.
How long do homemade chocolate chip cookies last?
Cookies can last a little over a week if kept in an airtight container.
What do I add to make cookies moist?
Egg yolks will help make cookies moist. Instead of using one full egg, you can replace the egg white with two yolks to help make the cookies moist.
