If there is one thing in my house that brings the family together, it’s the smell of homemade cookies. Last week I treated the girls to something new and they loved them so much that I had to share the recipe for these double chocolate chunk cookies.

These cookies are super gooey and packed with lots of yummy chocolate. Even a couple of days after I made them, they were still chewy in the center without microwaving them.

Can I use chocolate chips?

You definitely can! I have found that using chocolate chunks in these double chocolate chunk cookies makes them extra gooey and chocolatey, so that’s what we prefer.

Do I have to use dark and milk chocolate?

Of course not! You can choose any one or two flavors you like the best. We love how dark and milk compliment themselves in this cookie so that’s what we chose. 

What if I can’t find chocolate chunks?

I was only able to find dark and semi-sweet chunks in our local grocery stores, so because I knew I wanted milk chocolate, I just purchased a couple of bars of chocolate and chopped them up. That works just as well.

Do I have to use a scoop and if so, what type should I use?

While you don’t have to use a scoop, I find that it makes the cookies the same size and guarantees that they will all bake evenly. I purchased my cookie scoop years ago and I absolutely love it!

Why should I leave the double chocolate chunk cookies on the baking sheet to cool first?

Your cookies will continue to cook as they sit outside of the oven, on the baking sheet. This will ensure that the cookies are cooked all the way through but still have a yummy, chewy center.

Why do the eggs need to be at room temperature?

I learned years ago that room-temperature eggs mix better with your batter. The temperature can affect the baking time as well.

Can I melt the butter?

Melted and softened butter will give you different results. If you like a chewier cookie, you can melt it, though I don’t recommend melting it all the way if possible. Melt halfway and let the rest melt on its own as it sits. If the butter is too hot, it could change the results of your cookies. 

How do I know how long to bake my double chocolate chunk cookies?

Since every oven is different, I recommend setting it at 10 minutes at 350º and after they sit to cool for 5 minutes (remember, they will continue to cook a bit), test one out. You can gauge whether or not you need to leave them in longer or take them out sooner. 

What if I prefer flatter cookies?

Once you scoop out the batter onto your lined baking sheet, press each one down with the back of a spoon or your fingers. This will help your cookies to flatten out while baking. Alternatively, you can press them down a bit after they have baked, when you first remove them from the oven. Test both out and see which outcome you like best.
