Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:54 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chips.
  • 2. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes (do not overbake). Cool on pans 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.

"This is the Hershey's Reese's cookie recipe. The only difference is their recipe has Reese's peanut butter chips in them. It is a very good cookie!"

"If you love chocolate, you will love these cookies. I found it somewhat difficult to remove them from the cookie sheet even after allowing them to cool for one minute. You do have to remove them carefully. They are a delicious cookie."

"Someone has asked about making cookies plumper. I have discovered that replacing about 1/4 butter with the same amount of shortening preserves the buttery flavor and chewiness, but gives cookies a little more body (less melting in the oven). I adapted an oatmeal cookie recipe this way and am very happy with it."

"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."

"Oh my goodness. These cookies are awesome! Chewy inside and crunchy outside. I varied the recipe a bit by using mini nonpareils. Only needed a cup and then pressed a few on top. This recipe is definitely a keeper."

"These were yummy, my first tray came out really thin & falling apart. I added about a tbsp of flour to the remaining dough & the next tray of cookies came out fluffier. I also used half whole wheat flour & half regular since wheat flour makes slightly chewier cookies"
