Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
This cookie recipe—a favorite of our four children—has been in my collection for years. Sometimes I'll substitute mint-flavored chips for the semisweet chocolate ones. Either way, the cookies disappear quickly.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 11, 2014

Great tasting and versatile cookie. We like our cookies large, so mine made about 3 1/2 doz. To adjust, I added 1/2 C flour. I chilled the dough for about 1 hour. I used a cookie scoop about size of large walnut. Flatten tops of cookies slightly. Bake for 15 min. and let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing. I vary the flavor by adding peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips, or mint chips. All are yummy!

These are very good chocolate cookies; however, if I make it again, I'm going to replace the semi-sweet chocolate chips with white chocolate chips. Also the chocolate chips need to be cut back to about 1 to 1 1/2 cups

The best chocolate cookie recipe I have tried so far. I used 1 cup dark chocolate chips & 1 cup semi-sweet. Rich, chewy & tasty! Took mine a full 10 minutes to bake.

These cookies are really good and have a big chocolate flavor. I did increase the cooking time to 15 minutes and they still are chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. This recipe made me 3 dozen cookies. This is a keeper for my family.
