What ingredients do I need?
You’ll need all the ingredients shown in the photograph below.
Because we all need chewy chocolate chip cookies in our lives, right? One bite and we were hooked, we knew that we’d be making them again, and again, and again…
Do I need to chill the dough before baking?
No, you don’t.
This is the beauty of this cookie recipe.
You can make the cookie dough and be baking in no time!
Do I need a stand mixer?
In an ideal world, yes.
But stand mixers take up space and not everyone has got a large kitchen.
So while it’s great to have one, it’s not crucial.
A good handheld electric mixer will also do the job.
And failing that, then a good old wooden spoon with a healthy quantity will suffice.
Which chocolate chips are best?
We use semi-sweet chocolate chips.
You can either use small or large ones.
You could use white chocolate chips, but we prefer to keep those for our white chocolate chip cookies.
A friend of mine loves it when I mix in some peanut butter chips, giving the cookies a real nutty taste!
And if you’re a chocolate fan, then try no bake hot chocolate mix cookies!
What is a prepared baking sheet?
When you bake your cookies, it’s important to know that they are not going to stick to the baking sheet.
You’ll need to line it with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
We always use a silicone baking mat, you can wash them and reuse them time after time.
We like these mats as they are easy to trim to the size of your baking sheets (or whatever else you may use).
How do I store leftover double chocolate chip cookies?
Leftover cookies? What are they?
Seriously though, if you have any leftovers, or if you’re making them ahead, keep them in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
You can also freeze the baked cookies or the cookie dough balls in portions and they freeze for up to 3 months.
Recipe notes and expert tips
- Sift it
Make sure you sift the dry ingredients because doing so will reduce the chances of any cocoa powder pockets.
- Get a cookie scoop
They make life a whole lot easier – this is our favorite cookie scoop, and it’s not let us down yet!
Make sure you keep 2 inches between the cookie dough balls, or when they spread, they’ll join together.
