Where Do I Buy Good Chocolate Chunks For Cookies?

If you have a Trader Joe’s close by, I have to recommend their milk chocolate block. I use it for so many of my cookie recipes and it really makes these cookies PERFECT. I break off about 4 rows of the block and use a large chef knife to make my own chunks. You won’t be sorry!

Ingredients Needed For Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • butter, I use salted
  • granulated sugar
  • dark brown sugar, you can use light if that’s what you have on hand
  • large eggs
  • pure vanilla extract
  • all-purpose flour
  • Vanilla Instant Pudding mix
  • kosher salt
  • baking soda
  • chocolate chunks, get the milk chocolate block from Trader Joe’s if possible.

How To Make Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter and sugars into a stand mixer or bowl and use electric mixer. Beat until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla beating until well combined. Slowly stir in flour, pudding mix, salt, baking soda then chocolate chunks until dough forms. Using a medium sized cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet placing one inch apart to have room for spreading. Bake for 11-13 minutes, until baked to your liking. Remove and let cookies sit on baking sheet for another 15 minutes before transferring to serving plate. Serve room temperature.

Let cookies cool on baking sheet for a good 15 minutes before transferring. I also use a spatula or butter knife to shape cookies right after they get out of the oven if needed. Helps create a perfectly round cookie.

How To Serve Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Serve cookies room temperature on a serving plate at your upcoming celebrations or anytime cookie. They’re great with a cold glass of milk.

How To Store Leftover Cookies

Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days on the counter or refrigerator. They become even more chewy/firm when chilled.

    I use the one pound TJ’s chocolate all the time.They are a baking bargain.
    I break the bar into 5 square “chunks”…each chunk equals 2 oz. I get 8 per block of chocolate. I keep a bag of “chunks” on hand in the freezer to use whenever a recipe calls for baking chocolate.
    I will have to give this recipe a try…the cookies look very yummy
