Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.

  • Beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in one egg until completely incorporated. Beat in the last egg along with the vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop by heaped teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 9 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

These were yummy and VERY chocolatey...to the person who said they came out flat...it is CRUCIAL that you thoroughly mix any cookie recipe ingredients. Can't stress that enough. You can sift the dry ingredients to be sure those get mixed well and then USE A HAND MIXER when you add in the wet ingredients prior to adding the chips. Don't use the mixer when you add the chips. The cookies should be puffy when they come out of the oven and then flatten as they cool. Read More

After peach ice cream and peach pound cake hubby wanted something a little more decadent like something heavy-duty chocolate. This was it! As he was eating one of these cookies I asked him how he liked them--all he could do was nod his head up and down and say "Mmmmmmmmm." Finally he told me this was one of the best cookies he had ever eaten. This cookie is everything you'd want it to be--chewy gooey chocolatey pretty and sinfully good. I too added 1/2 tsp. salt but not for height as one reviewer suggested but because salt makes flavors "come alive." This is one great cookie! Read More

A great change from chocolate chip cookies - delicious and very rich and chocolate-y. I agree that the recipe is a bit confusing. I had to read it over a few times to understand what I needed to do. It should say "Combine dry ingredients EXCEPT THE WHITE AND BROWN SUGAR; in separate bowl cream sugars eggs butter AND VANILLA EXTRACT." And once the dry ingredients are sifted into the wet fold in the chocolate chips. But well worth the effort to figure it out - Yum! Read More

These cookies were awesome! My husband and I loved them-some of the best I've ever had. I did use salt and a stone cookie sheet. They came out thick and fluffy soft and chewy. I agree with an earlier review-make sure ingredients are mixed together well wet and dry separately and when mixing together!I agree the recipe was confusing and should have said "Mix all dry ingredients except for sugars. Cream sugars butter eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl." Again these cookies were awesome-some of the best I've ever had! Read More

This recipe was easy to put together and the taste of the cookies was fabulous. The only thing I would add would be another 1/4 c. of flour as these cookies spread more than I would have liked. I like a firmer cookie. Read More

as my 19 month old son said when he tried one "MMMMMMM!!!"... these are awesome cookies moist chocolatey. I am pregnant and was craving some double chocolate chip cookies like those grandma's ones you find in the store. These definitely fit the bill! I used regular cocoa powder semi sweet chocolate chips and added an extra tsp of vanilla. mmmMMM! These are addictive! Moist with just the right amount of chocolate taste! Read More
