Do you like chocolate?

Silly question. Of course you do! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You will love these cookies, too – they’re make with both cocoa powder and lots of semisweet chocolate chips. The recipe is super simple, and only takes a little while to make. Here’s a full how-to, and there will be a printable recipe at the bottom. I’m going to show you step-by-step photos too ๐Ÿ™‚

First of all, get your ingredients ready! You’ll need an egg, all-purpose flour, semisweet chocolate chips, cocoa powder, light brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt.

Start by adding butter and sugar to a big bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until light and fluffy.

Next up: your egg! Toss one in to join the party. I like cracking my eggs into little saucers beforehand so they can easily reach room temperature. Bonus – you won’t have to worry about eggshells getting mixed into the butter + sugar mixture.

A bit of vanilla extract for that heavenly cookie smell and signature flavour. We buy our vanilla from Costco.

In a separate bowl, whisk your dry ingredients together.

Add it to the wet ingredients. We switched our paddle attachment to this guy, which I use when adding flour. Flour thickens the mixture, and it’s a bit hard for the thin wire whisk attachment to manage. I turned it to the low “stir” setting to combine.

Looks great! The last step is to add most of the chocolate chips. You’ll want to save some for the topping, for pretty presentation.

Place them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. A small ice cream scoop, cookie scoop, or even a tablespoon measure, would work perfectly.

Ideally, this recipe would make 24, but for some reason, we got 25. ๐Ÿ™‚ Space them out a little bit. They won’t spread too much, but you’ll want to make sure they don’t stick together after baking.

Into the {preheated} oven they go for 12 minutes. They’ll emerge super soft and chocolatey.ย I let them cool on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes before transferring them onto a wire cooling rack with sliced cream cheese pound cake. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seline said they were “crumbly, not super moist, but cookie-like and fairly sweet and chocolatey”. Since Sel likes chocolatey desserts served with cold vanilla ice cream, I gave her two of these freshly-baked little guys with two scoops of Breyer’s ice cream. She would rate them 7/10, and said that even though this is a classic chocolate cookie recipe, she’s simply not into floury baked goods. Who is she?!

    1. Thank you! Usually I do more healthy baking, like with special flours and extra fruit, coconut oil, etc., but these were for a party. Plus you’re right – double chocolate is an attention grabber for me too ๐Ÿ™‚ These were gobbled up at the party!

    1. LOL chocolate garlic cookies could be the new diet trend ๐Ÿ˜‰ Speed up metabolism, burn fat, and improve athletic performance with baked rounds of cocoa powder and garlic!

      YES! I was thinking about adding some pecans and shredded coconut, but my sister HATES both ingredients! Who is she, right?! But I’d love to smother these in PB and then sandwich them… yum. You always come up with the best ideas!
