Double Chocolate Cookies

If you’re looking for a soft, chewy, fudgy, chocolatey, cookie – look no futher! This recipe comes from Mike’s cousin and as soon as I tasted them I knew I needed to make them. I wasted no time in asking for the recipe and making them as birthday treats for a coworker. Everyone loved them and I overheard one woman walking out the kitchen with a cookie in her hand saying “These cookies are so good.” Comments like that always make me smile :)

These truly are some of the fudgiest chocolate cookies I’ve ever tasted. Be careful not to overbake them, as that will make them a little cake-ier. I erred on the side of slightly underbaking them and they were perfect.

Double Chocolate Cookies


1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips


Beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, cocoa, soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.

  1. Wow, those cookies look awesome! Soft chewy cookies are my favorite 😀

  2. the real question is who rates something at a 3.75? Why not a 3.80, or even a 4.0? and on what scale is this aforementioned 3.75? Because if the scale is 1 to 4, then I call shenanigans.

  3. Double chocolate cookies??? We’re in a recession, you know.

  4. Hehe, those look delicious. I always wonder the same thing when I bring food to work. It’s always super nice to overhear someone saying something nice about your baking, hehe.

  15. Did you use semi-sweet chocolate chips or unsweetened? and granulated or brown sugar?

  17. Hi! I had been searching the web for just the right chocolate, chocolate chunk cookie that was soft and chewy… When I read this post I knew yours were the ones. :) I made these today and they were amazing. I substituted 1/2 of the vanilla for peppermint extract, and used Andes chunks instead of regular chocolate chips. I’ve been wanting to do this forever and couldn’t find the right chocolate cookie to use as a base. You’re my hero!!

      I’m so glad you liked these! Great suggesions for a minty version – that sounds so good! :)

  18. I made these and they were divine! I used white choc chips which I really love. The first batch didn’t last an hour! thanks so much for your fabulous recipe!!
