The Chewiest Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

Hi everyone!

This is the first recipe post I have ever shared, so today I will be showcasing one of my favorite cookies! These chocolate chip cookies are some of the thickest, fattest and satisfying I have ever tried. I recommend this recipe if you are in the need of something easy to fill a cookie craving; its also a great way to get rid of leftover Halloween chocolate 🙂 The cookies have just the right amount of chocolate, a perfect balance of gooey cookie and cocoa without being too overpowering.

So here it is! My chocolate chip cookie recipe:

Adapted from: OMG Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies! Pure Nirvana!

Makes: about 2 dozen medium sized cookies

Ingredients

  • 14 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon pure maple syrup (cold)
  • 2½ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon grinded sea salt
  • Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – as many or as few as you want; Hershey’s chocolate bars (optional)

Directions (almost identical to original recipe, linked above)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 (or the setting closest to that – my oven is weird so I set it to setting 4 – up to 345).
  2. Melt butter in the microwave, but not all the way. I set my microwave to 30 seconds.
  3. Let butter cool for 2 min, then add it to mixing bowl with brown sugar and beat on low speed until blended.
  4. Add in the maple syrup, beat on low speed. Then, add in 2 eggs and beat again. This whole process should take only about 1 min (with standard stand mixer).
  5. Add flour, cornstarch and sea salt. Beat on low speed until it forms a ball.
  6. Stir chocolate chips in with spatula. You can use however many you would like, I ended up using 3/4 of a standard Nestle bag. At this point, I also chose to chop up a Hershey’s bar (great use for leftover Halloween candy) and fold it into the batter as well to make chocolate chunks.
  7.  Spoon cookie dough onto your baking sheet, pre-lined with parchment paper. I made fairly large dough balls (about 1-2 inches tall).
  8. Bake until lightly brown on bottom, but not too squishy on the inside. Keep checking on your cookies because it is easy to burn them or undercook the insides. I had mine in the oven for about 15 min.
  9. Let cool and transfer to cooling rack or paper plate.
  10. Enjoy!
