Chewy chocolate chocolate chip cookies are double chocolate chip cookies with soft middles and chewy edges.
I love a good chewy cookie! These chewy chocolate chocolate chip cookies are based on my chewy brown sugar chocolate chip cookies.
They have soft middles and chewy edges, so they’re pretty much a perfect double chocolate cookie.
These cookies pack a double chocolate punch! The chocolate cookies aren’t overly sweet, and they’re full of melty chocolate.
How to make chocolate chocolate chip cookies
These cookies start with melted butter, and have plenty of brown sugar mixed in. The cookies have an extra dose of vanilla to enhance the chocolate. The cookies also have a fair amount of cocoa powder to give the cookies lots of chocolate flavor.
Can I use a different type of chocolate?
Yes! I always suggest using the type of chocolate that you like.
I prefer semisweet chocolate in these cookies. If you want more of a dark chocolate cookie, use bittersweet chocolate. If you want a sweeter cookie, use milk chocolate chips in these cookies.

You did it again, in creating another Home Run! These cookies have everything we love in a chocolate cookie, like, crispy edges, soft centers, & a surprise in every bite.
Thank you for sharing this amazing & delicious indulgence with us.
Thank you so much!!
Great flavor! The texture is perfect.
Thank you so much!
One of my pet peeves is flour measurement, as flour companies all state a cup is 120 grams. However, that amount is rarely seen (by me, anyway) & I’ve seen the weight as high as 155g for a cup, depending on the method of measurement. I do 130g unless convinced by the recipe creator to use a different amount. Sometimes doing so didn’t turn out well. You seem to be as fussy as me in this area, so if you do use 120g for a cup of flour, I will too. Heaven help you if you’re wrong! lol😄
I hear you about the flour measurements! I’ve seen everything from 120g to 145g for a cup of flour from major recipe websites. When I measure by volume (and then weigh), I end up between 115g and 125g, so the 120g measurement for a cup of flour makes sense to me. One of the great things about measuring by weight is that you have that exact amount to go off of, so you don’t have to worry about those variations. =)
This cookies are awsome!!!
Thank you so much!
Can I use hot chocolate powder instead of cocoa powder and if so how much less brown sugar do I put? Unless it’ll be extra sweet
No, I don’t think that will work. There’s no way to tell what the ratio of sugar to cocoa powder is in the mix, and hot chocolate mix usually uses granulated sugar, not brown sugar.
Love how fluffy they turn out without refrigeration!!!
what to do if we did not leave it for 5 minutes and put the butter what should we do
You didn’t let the butter and sugar stand for 5 minutes? Be careful when adding the egg. The 5 minutes gives the butter and sugar a chance to combine, but it also lets the butter/sugar mixture cool slightly. If you skip that, you’ll have to be careful when you add the egg so that you don’t end up with pieces of cooked egg from the hot butter/sugar mixture.
one of my favorite cookie recipies. Always comes out amazing.
Thank you so much! I’m so happy that you like the recipe! =)

Thank you! I’m so glad that you liked the cookies. =) Thanks for commenting!
Very excited to use this recipe for Xmas and wanted to know if I need to make any adjustments to make it’s it style icecream sandwiches with it?
I was thinking of layering the dough on a sheet pan instead of scooping out so that I can easily spread icecream on it and cut it into square bars.
Hi! I’ve never made this cookie as a bar. Usually, the only adjustment is the baking time, but I haven’t tried it to say for certain.
