DIY: Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family loves warm chocolate chip cookies. Who doesn’t? Yum! They are the ultimate in comforting desserts. Something about the perfect combination of butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and chocolate makes them one of my favorites! And warm out of the oven can’t be beat. I like them soft and chewy.

These chocolate chip cookies are a doctored up version of the classic Nestle Toll House recipe. I like to add extra vanilla, extra chopped up semi-sweet chocolate, and I like to use cookie scoops and bake them on parchment paper.

First you cream the butter and add white sugar.

Add in a whole Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate baking bar, chopped.
Also add in 3/4 of a bag of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Mixing in the chocolate.
Small and large cookie scoops.
Scooping the dough onto parchment lined sheets.
They turned out so yummy!

Here’s the recipe:

Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar (I used light brown sugar)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 large eggs, room temperature and whisked

3/4 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 Ghirardelli semi-sweet baking bar, chopped into pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside. In another large bowl, cream together the softened butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Once creamed, slowly mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt mixture. Use a slow setting on your hand mixer. Do not over mix, it will result in a tough cookie. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips and chopped chocolate baking bar. Use a cookie scoop, large and small, depending upon what size cookie you would like. Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes until slightly brown on edges. Let cool slightly on baking sheets before removing. Enjoy!!!

I love the last bit of batter that has no chocolate chips. I bake that too and save that cookie for myself. I am wondering if I am the only one who loves the last cookie that has no chocolate chips? Please let me know in the comments!
