How to Make the Best Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Follow the simple steps below, and you’ll be on your way to warm decadent cookies in no time! 

Prepare the Dough

  • To begin, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Then, combine the dry ingredients until they, making sure to mix evenly. 
  • In a second bowl, cream the butter with the sugars. Next, add the whole egg, and beat again. 
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the egg yolk and vanilla. Beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. 
  • Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients
  • Fold in the chocolate chips. 

Portion the Batter

Now that the dough is combined, it’s time to form your cookies! Of course, you could eyeball your portions, but we highly recommend that you don’t! Instead, follow the steps below. 

  • Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop out equal portions. 
  • Roll each portion in between your palms to form a ball. 
  • Flatten the cookies just slightly before placing them on a baking sheet.

Bake

Now, it’s time to finish your chocolate chunk cookies! 

  • Place the baking sheet in the heated oven. 
  • Bake for 13-14 minutes or until the edges of your cookies are golden brown.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and let the cookies cool completely. 

Tips & Tricks for Irresistible Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Measure with a scale. To guarantee your cookies turn out perfectly, we recommend measuring the ingredients with a food scale to prevent any miscalculations! 

Don’t overmix your dough! You want the ingredients to be just combined. Otherwise, they won’t have that soft texture we’re looking for. 

Remove the cookies from the oven before you think they’re done. You want them to still be just a little gooey. They’ll continue to bake and solidify as they cool!

Space the cookies out. You want to leave plenty of room on the baking sheet because the dough will expand as it bakes. 

Use room temperature dough. This will help the dough spread and flatten as the cookies bake. 

Serve your cookies warm! We love to pair them with milk or vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.

Make-Ahead & Storage Options

Once baked, leftover cookies can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days

Or, for longer-lasting cookies, place them in the freezer instead! For the best results, wrap each cookie with foil, and store them in an airtight container for up to 2 months

If you prefer, you can also freeze the dough to bake later. We recommend portioning it out first, and letting the balls of dough harden for 20 minutes or so in the freezer. Then, transfer them to a sealable bag, and store them for up to 2 months

Can I Bake the Dough from Frozen? 

Yes! Just reduce the oven temperature by roughly 20-25 degrees, and increase the baking time by 2-3 minutes. Bake as normal, and enjoy!

    I love your recipes and your videos. Your instructions for new cooks are outstanding and even for experienced cooks, there are good tips. However, I find it frustrating to have to search beyond all the basic instructions to the complete recipe. I would love it if the entire recipe were to come first and then all the intricate instructions were to follow. But please take this as a suggestion not a criticism because your recipes are delicious and unique.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion! Just to let you know that at the top of the page, you can “Jump to Recipe” to take you straight into the recipe and instructions!

    Made up the cookie dough on Saturday and refrigerated it till Sunday afternoon when my kids came to have Sunday dinner. I followed the recipe except I used special dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. I took the dough out of the fridge two hours before I baked the cookies to bring it up to room temperature. I baked them for 13 minutes and 20 seconds and they came out perfect. They were a big hit with the kids and I was informed that this recipe had to be included at all our get-together. Super delicious and super easy to make. I’ll be trying more of your recipes. Looking to make a French toast casserole for the holidays but which one to try?
