These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are super rich, ultra fudgey, and chewy. If you are a chocolate lover you will absolutely love these cookies.

I tested this recipe a couple ways. With more flour =  (thicker cookie) and more brown sugar = (chewier cookie). I ended up with the perfect combination. I also slightly under baked the cookies to get the nice fudgey texture inside.

I added Morton Fine Sea Salt to these double chocolate cookies. The touch of salt really brings out the chocolate flavor in these cookies and is the perfect addition.

Morton Fine Sea Salt is created through evaporation of sea water by the sun and the small salt crystals blend easily to give food a well-balanced flavor. Fine sea salt measures and flows like table salt making it ideal for everyday cooking and baking.

Morton Salt just launched a Next Door Chef program which pairs an acclaimed chef with a novice cook to teach them how the proper usage of salt can transform home-cooked food into an elite dining experience.

To increase the chocolate flavor even more I added in some coffee granules. Coffee helps to accentuate the cocoa powder in the cookies.

To make these cookies simply cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Fold in your dry ingredients and chocolate chips and your done!

These cookies are best served warm with a tall glass of milk!

    These were really good! I omitted the coffee but I would suggest adding an extra half cup of flour. 1 cup was not enough and they really flattened out, especially once cooled. Otherwise yummy! My son loved them. Very easy to switch out choc chips for rainbow bits, too 🙂

  • Best cookie I’ve ever had!! I added white choc chips to 1/2 and they were awesome! I cd imagine pecans and caramel bits for turtles or peanut butter chips for punt butter choc cookies.Some frozen balls of this cookie dough in choc ice cream wd be over the top. Make double recipe because u will eat 1/2 the batter! Have to make this recipe.

    These double chocolate chip cookies are amazing!
    I didn’t change anything in the recipe.
    The hint of coffee is great, defiantly brings out the chocolatey goodness!
    Totally keeping this recipe handy, will absolutely create it again!

    Is the coffee just regular brewed coffee, and if so should it be cold or hot when added to the batter?
