Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate lovers, these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies are for you! ❤
I love a good chocolate chip cookie, and if you haven’t tried my recipe for The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie you need to make them soon. So today, I used the same recipe as my chocolate chip cookies, but I just made some minor changes to make these super soft, chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.
You could also use mint chocolate chips for a fun St. Patrick’s Day cookie or white chocolate chips for a delicious twist on a black and white cookie. The options are endless with what you can do to make this Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie your go-to cookie recipe.
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✔ With almost all my cookie recipes, I always make sure to remind you to not OVER MIX the cookie dough. Meaning, when you mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, only mix them together until just combined…you should still see some flour in your mixing bowl. Over mixing will lead to dry cookies, and no one likes a dry cookie!
✔ I always use a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop but if you don’t have a cookie scoop you can use a 1 Tablespoon measuring spoon. Each cookie dough ball has “2 scoops” of cookie dough, meaning that each cookie dough ball is 2 Tablespoons in size. In my opinion, this is the perfect sized cookie.
★ And to make it super easier for you to learn how to scoop the perfect cookie, I created a step-by-step guide on How To Scoop The Perfect Cookie!
