🍴 What To Serve With Cookies

These indulgent cookies are definitely milk's best friend! You can also enjoy them alongside a root beer float or a chocolate martini! Enjoy!

💭 Tips & Notes

  • Using a cookie scoop is a simple way to ensure that all of your cookies are uniform and the same size, which helps them to bake evenly.
  • Adding the optional espresso powder will emphasize the chocolate flavor of the cookies (and they won't taste like coffee).
  • I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can certainly use your favorite kind! Try them with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, or even peanut butter chips!

🥡 Storing

Store your double chocolate chip cookies at room temperature in either a sealed container or a zip-top bag for up to 1 week.

Freezing Cookies

Freeze your cookies with pieces of parchment paper, separating them for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature when ready.

For unbaked cookies, once you have portioned your cookies into dough balls, set the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze them solid. Then, you can transfer the balls to a storage bag or container. When ready, you can bake the cookies straight from frozen, but you will need to add a few extra minutes to the baking time.

❓ FAQ

What Does Double Chocolate Chip Mean?

Typically, a double chocolate chip cookie is one that has both chocolate dough and chocolate chips in it. However, you may see different varieties (or even triple chocolate) that all just refer to the type of dough and the number of types of chocolate mix-ins.

How Do I Make Soft And Chewy Cookies?

In order to achieve chewy and tender cookies, it is important that you don't overbake them. When you take them out of the oven, they should still be soft and slightly underbaked in the center. As they cool off, they will finish baking and firm up.

What Kind Of Chocolate Chips Should I Use For Double Chocolate Chip Cookies?

I used regular semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can easily use whatever you like! Milk chocolate and white chocolate chips will be sweeter, and dark chocolate chips will be more rich. You could also use mini chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or even butterscotch chips!
