Today was a snowy winter day, and it was the perfect day to whip up a batch of my favorite Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are decadently rich, chock full of chocolate chips, and basically melt in your mouth.

Now, when you look at the recipe, don’t freak out about the butter.

I need you to promise.

I know it looks like a lot, but when you taste these cookies, you won’t care.

These are perfect anytime, but especially right when they come out of the oven.  Gooey, warm, and chocolatey…yum! Pour yourself a tall glass of cold milk, and you will pretty much be in heaven.

Wrap them up and give them as gifts—you will have people love you forever.

  1. These look stinkin’ delicious! I’m a sucker for chocolate (especially when the weather is icy outside). I’m making this for the upcoming winter storm that’s on the way! Thanks!

  2. How many dozen does this recipe make please? They look delicious! thank you. Haven’t made yet so can’t rate.

    1. It depends on how large/small you make them. You can make up to 5 dozen if you make them pretty small, but I like larger cookies, so I can get around 2-3 dozen. Let me know what you think!!! I hope you love them as much as we do. :)

  3. My son needed to bake something with chocolate for a school assignment (that’s my kind of homework!) and he said he wanted to make chocolate cookies so your recipe fit the bill perfectly! Mine turned out kind of flat (yours look way better) but they still tasted great! And loved your butter comment, lol.

    Thanks!
