How To Make Double Chocolate Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter, brown sugar and sugar into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla mixing well. Add flour, cocoa powder, pudding mix, baking soda and salt, slowly mix until dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips or chunks. Scoop 1/3 cup size dough, roll into balls and place onto baking sheets 2 inches apart. I do 2 per row with 6 balls per sheet. Bake for 10 minutes and remove for soft gooey cookies. Bake for 12-14 minutes for more firm cookies. Let cool completely before transferring to cooling rack.

Once wet ingredients are well combined, add dry ingredients and slowly stir until dough is formed.

What Kind Of Cocoa Powder Should I Use?

You can use regular cocoa powder or dutch-process cocoa. I like to use Hershey’s Dark Cocoa which is usually sold in the baking section of your grocery store.

What is the difference between the two? Regular cocoa powder, is bittersweet. The acidic properties of cocoa powder will counterbalance the alkaline of the baking soda. Dutch-process cocoa is treated with alkaline, which makes it taste less bitter and powerful. Dutch-process cocoa often has a darker, redder color compared to regular cocoa powder.

Where Do I Get Chocolate Chunks?

You can usually buy chocolate chunks already “chunked” in a bag by the other chocolate chips. I prefer to get the big block of Milk Chocolate at Trader Joe’s and chop it myself. It’s creamy and melts like a dream. The whole block is around $5.00 and last for at least 3 batches of cookies. It’s a great deal.

Can I Use Chocolate Chips Instead of Chocolate Chunks?

Yes, you can use your favorite variety of chocolate chips in place of the chocolate chunks.

I use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop my dough to make large cookies. You can definitely make smaller cookies if you’d like too.

When making large cookies like this, I generally only bake 6 at a time per baking sheet to assure they have plenty of room to spread.

Chocolate Chunk heaven!

For a gooey soft center bake at 375 degrees F. for 10 minutes. For smaller cookies, remove at 8 minutes.
