In a medium-sized bowl, mix the brown sugar, vanilla extract, and egg until creamy. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, add 8 ounces of chocolate chips and butter.
Melt in 20-second increments in the microwave. (It shouldn’t take more than a minute). Mix after every 20 seconds.
Add the chocolate to the egg mixture and mix well.
For this recipe, I used a hand mixer. But you can also use a stand mixer if that’s what you have.
Next, combine flour mixture with the chocolate and egg mixture and mix well.
Finally, add 12 ounces of chocolate chips and stir in with a spatula.
It’s tough not to dip your finger into the dough. It’s soooooo good and soooo rich!
Once you’ve stirred the chips into the dough, take a spoon and scoop a pile onto the baking sheet.
I really like stoneware for baking these cookies. It seems to cook more evenly and doesn’t burn on the bottom.
You can see in the picture that I’ve used my stoneware pan so much that it’s almost black. I don’t ever have to use non-stick spray – it’s great!
I try to get the double chocolate cookie dough into a ball. I don’t roll it, but I scrape it off my spoon.
It will flatten out a little when it cooks, but if you have a little blob sticking out, it will cook that way.
So, if you like your cookies in perfect little circles, you will have to help them along a little bit.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Once I took the cookies out of the oven, I sacrificed one cookie and used a fork to see if the inside was done (of course, I still ate it).
If it’s still pretty gooey, they need to cook a couple of minutes more.
When it looks like the cookies below, it’s done.
I leave mine sitting on the cookie sheet for a few minutes because if you try to scrape them off and put them on a cooling rack, you will have a big blob of chocolatey sadness.
It will still taste great, but it will not be pretty.
Leave them there to cool for about five minutes, and then put them on the cooling rack.
These double chocolate chip cookies are so yummy and are perfect for the chocolate lover in your life. They are a little crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside.
The chocolate cookies are super rich, and you really can only eat a couple at a time. Believe me, I’ve tried.
I love the way they crack and are shiny. They are so pretty!
Sometimes it’s fine to change things up a little bit. You can add something different to give your cookie a bit of a different flavor.
- White chocolate chips
- Peanut butter chips
- Butterscotch chips
- Chocolate chunks
- Dark chocolate chips
How To Store The Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Store the cookies in an airtight container. They do not need to be refrigerated.
