Ingredients
  
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
Instructions
 
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine your dry ingredients. Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together then set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, cream the butter. Start by adding the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Cream the butter with the sugars until it is thoroughly blended.
  • Add the vanilla and eggs to the bowl with the butter. Beat the mixture until it is fluffy and light.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients and stir until just blended.
  • Note: it is important not to over mix after combining the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. If you over mix, your cookies may not be as soft after baking.
  • Add the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks to the bowl and gently fold them in.
  • Scoop the cookies onto a baking sheet. We recommend measuring them out to be 1/4 cup each and suggest spacing them out on the baking sheet. These cookies will expand in the oven!
  • Bake for 13 to 14 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden brown. The inside will continue to bake when you take them out of the oven, so it’s ok if they are gooey.
  • Let them sit on the baking sheet for a couple minutes out of the oven. This allows the cookies too firm up in shape.
  • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to fully cool.
  • Serve warm with milk or ice cream!

Notes

We highly recommend scooping the cookies onto a baking sheet and refrigerating for at least 30 minutes. The longer the dough chills, the better they become!
