Technically these Giant Double Chocolate Cookies are a re-post of these cookies…sort of. When I made them the first time, I added third chocolate and didn’t make them a giant size. They were very delicious but when I wanted a chocolate cookie after a few unsuccessful situations in the kitchen, I tried the Double chocolate cookies.
These are a whopping 4 ounces each, absolutely full of chocolatey goodness, and will cure any sweet tooth that you might have. You may even want to share a cookie over the course of the day – they are honestly that big and rich. Of course, the right way to wat them – with a glass of milk 😉
Giant Double Chocolate Cookies Ingredients
- 1 cup (2 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed
- 1¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup dark cocoa powder
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ tsp. coarse salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 ¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 ¼ cups bittersweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350˚ F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition.
- Beat in the cocoa powder until combined. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder to the bowl and mix at low speed just until incorporated. Beat in chocolate chips.
- Divide the dough into 4-ounce portions (or into 12 equal pieces). Roll each portion of dough into a ball* and then flatten just slightly into a disc.
- Place 6 dough balls onto a prepared baking sheet, spacing a few inches apart. Bake for 16-20 minutes, until mostly set.
- Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
*If freezing, place baking sheet with shaped dough balls into the freezer until mostly frozen, at least 1 hour. Place dough balls into a freezer safe container for storage. When ready to bake, allow dough balls to thaw enough so that they can be slightly flattened into discs. Bake as directed.
