Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe by PinchMeTwice.comMoist, chewy, decadent Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. You might want to grab a tall glass of milk when you make these because they are very, very rich.

I am a HUGE cookie fanatic, but since I’ve been trying to shed a few pounds lately I have done my best to avoid making them. This isn’t easy when you truly have fallen in love with baking like I have.

This particular recipe only makes about 25 cookies, which I felt was a great compromise for me. I’m able to scratch my baking itch, and also make sure I don’t have much leftover cookie dough lingering around.

I know, I know. I can always freeze the dough. But look y’all… I don’t like to have ANY sweets left in my house for more than a few days (if I can help it). All it takes is one little urge and off to the kitchen I go. (I can’t be the only one who does this)

Making a smaller batch was a very wise decision because these cookies are hands down the best I’ve ever made. I know food bloggers probably say that about everything we make, but hey there’s nothing wrong with confidence. 🙂

Anytime I make cookies they must involve some extras, so I did mix in walnuts, but that is completely optional. I also used a combination of milk chocolate morsels as well as semi-sweet chocolate morsels. It really adds to the decadence so give it a try.

This recipe is super easy and very quick to make. I recommend you refrigerate this dough for at least one hour before baking. And as always make sure to properly measure your dry ingredients.

Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by.

    Hi, I just came past your site on instagram and was very intrigued so i browsed through and liked what i saw. I was wondering if you have a good chocolate chip cookie recipe I’m trying to get into baking more and everytime i make those cookies they always come out flat i like the bumps and ridges in cookies how your double chocolate cookies look Lol. Do you have any tips on what i may be doing wrong could it be to much butter or over mixing? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Also any recipes on a good Cream Cheese pound cake?

      Hi Kee, sorry for the delayed response your comment ended up in spam for some reason. My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe hands down is here on my site. http://pinchmetwice.com/2014/12/31/this-times-a-charm-chocolate-chip-walnut-cookies/ I will be doing an update on this recipe soon. A great tip is to make sure that you don’t overmix your dry ingredients with your wet ingredients. Are you chilling your dough before you bake? I also find that using a silicon baking mat helps my cookies come out perfect every time. Also I have actually never made a cream cheese pound cake before, but you have given me an idea. Thanks!
