Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

These double chocolate chunk cookies are filled with both dark and white chocolate chunks and chips. In fact, this is one of my favorite straight up chocolate cookies. They are pretty incredible, and incredibly easy to make.

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies from Karen's Kitchen Stories

This cookie is really just a small amount of chocolate cookie dough holding together a collection of chocolate chips and chunks. Seriously. Only 1 3/4 cups of flour to make three dozen cookies. The texture is sort of a cross between a brownie and a cookie. So good.

You can add any combination of chocolate chip or chunk combinations. For these cookies, I used 8 ounces of semisweet and bittersweet chocolate chunks and chips, and 4 ounces of white chocolate chunks. I've also made them with half semisweet chocolate chips and half white chocolate chunks. 

I'm thinking that cinnamon, butterscotch, or mocha chips combined with chocolate chunks would be wonderful as well.

These cookies will fly out of your cookie jar so be sure to hide some for yourself. 

Ingredients for these cookies:

  • Melted unsalted butter 

  • Light brown sugar

  • Baking powder

  • Espresso powder - if you don't have access to espresso powder, crush some instant coffee as a substitute. 

  • Salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • Pure vanilla extract

  • Dutch process chocolate

  • Unbleached all purpose flour

  • A combination of chocolate chunks and chocolate chips, including white chocolate. It's a great way to clean out the bottoms of the chocolate chip bags. 

I also like to pair these cookies with Vanilla and Chocolate Rocks for a nice contrast. Chocolate and vanilla. Killer. I'll have three of each please. Thank you.

To portion the cookies, I used a tablespoon cookie scoop. This ensures that the cookies will come out pretty much all the same size and will cook evenly. 

I baked these on parchment lined baking sheets, and as you can see, they stay nice and rounded. If you'd like a flatter cookie, gently press them down before baking. 

These cookies are amazing warm from the oven while the chocolate is still melty. They are also delicious when the chocolate chunks cool.

I first posted this cookie recipe in February, 2013. This is an update of the post with new photos and printable recipe card. 

These cookies are amazing and one of my "go-to" recipes whenever I make cookies for potlucks, gifts, and just to enjoy a delicious chocolate cookie. 

When you can't decide between a brownie or a chocolate chip cookie, be sure to try "brookies!"
