I have made these cookies many times for my family and friends. It is a favorite and always a “go to” when I’m bringing sweets to a gathering. It makes a large batch and they freeze very well. My grandson and my husband agree that this is the best cookie ever!

All of my other double chocolate cookies end up flat. These turned out perfectly. I added two tablespoons of extra flour because I live at a high altitude. The recipe worked well with that adjustment. They come out of the oven very soft and moist like a brownie. My family likes it that way but I prefer they sit a while to get firmer. Great cookie!

This years favorite with my family! I made the first batch as the original recipe, and added a baking semi-sweet chocolate bar to the second batch (we REALLY like chocolate) and both came out great!!!!

They were DELICIOUS! You should REALLY try these. I never ever ever use salt when I bake so I would suggest that you leave out the salt. I just made these for fun to see what they would turn out like and it REALLY worked out! Follow the instructions directly (except leave out the salt like I said before.) I think you are going to LOVE these. Trust me. I ate like a million of those!

Delicious! I used all whole wheat flour (scooped and levelled) and they turned out great.

Some double chocolate cookies have a weird texture when they're baked...not this one. Delicious! I used white chocolate chips instead of semisweet for a little different flavor.

These cookies are so good! The batter is really stiff - made me wish I had a KitchenAid, but worth the extra muscle required!
