Chop the chocolate!

Just when you think you’ve got chocolate chip cookies down pat, along comes another recipe that beats the one you’ve been using for years. These are that good. I think it’s the chopped up chocolate that does it for me, you are guaranteed a little bit of chocolate deliciousness in every bite!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Tips:

  • CHOCOLATE: You can use milk chocolate, semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips. Chop about 1/2 cup and leave 1 cup whole.
  • BAKING TIME: Bake the cookies on the lower side of time if you want them more chewy. If you like them more crunchy bake them longer.
  • DOUBLE IT! This recipe is easily doubled. Freeze half for later.
  • FREEZING: These cookies freeze well. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag and keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
