These Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies are thin, chewy, and wonderfully decadent. The dough is freezer-friendly and if you keep a stash of it in your freezer, you can have delicious warm chocolate chocolate chip cookies in a matter of minutes with little to no fuss.
- Cocoa Powder: This is the key ingredient that provides the chocolate flavor in the cookies. When selecting cocoa powder, look for high-quality Dutch-processed cocoa powder, which brings out a richer, smoother chocolate flavor. Unsweetened cocoa powder is recommended for this recipe.
- Chocolate Chips: Chocolate chips are another crucial ingredient that adds an extra boost of chocolate flavor to the cookies. You can choose between semi-sweet, dark, or milk chocolate chips depending on your personal preference. It's best to use high-quality chocolate chips, as this will greatly impact the overall taste of the cookies. For the best results, use a mix of chocolate chips and chopped chocolate to create a well-balanced texture in the cookies.

- Note: You can also add other ingredients like nuts, dried fruit, or spices to add texture and flavor to the cookies. Feel free to experiment and make the recipe your own!
Start by preheating the oven to 375. If you haven’t had time to let the butter come to room temperature just stick it in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until it’s just softened rather than melted.
In a bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a large bowl combine the room-temperature butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Combine the wet ingredients until smooth and then start adding the dry ingredients in a cup at a time. Once the mixture is combined add your chocolate chips.
Once all the ingredients are incorporated, shape the dough into golf ball size balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave enough room in between the balls of cookie dough because these cookies like to spread out.
If you plan on freezing the cookie dough, shape the balls, squishing them down just a touch before placing them in a freezer bag to help them spread out. They’ll hold up in the freezer for up to nine months. When it’s time to cook them, preheat the oven and place them on a cookie sheet (frozen) and cook them a few minutes longer, about 15-18 minutes total.
In conclusion, making the ultimate chocolate chocolate chip cookies is all about having fun in the kitchen! And let's face it, who doesn't love a good excuse to break out the cocoa powder and chocolate chips? With the right ingredients and a little bit of TLC, you'll be whipping up a batch of gooey, chocolatey goodness in no time. So, grab your apron and your sweet tooth, and let's get baking! Yummm.
