You guys probably know by now how much we love our cookies around here. If not, let me tell you, we are huge cookie fans at this house!
Today I just wanted to make a basic cookie that I knew my kids would love. They are in school until June 7th this year. Can you believe it? They have been working so hard all year long, and they could use a little something to brighten their day. They are sooooo ready for summer!
I know, there are a million cookies called Chocolate Chunk Cookies or Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies. This isn’t anyone’s exact recipe. I pretty much knew what I wanted the cookies to include before I even looked through my cookie recipes. After all, most Chocolate Chunk Cookies are pretty much the same.
These cookies truly aren’t too rich and the chocolate chunks add a nice touch. I guess I would describe these cookies as simple, delicious and comforting. These Double Chocolate Chunk cookies are also very good warmed up for just a bit in the microwave and then topped off with a scoop of your favorite ice cream. Then if you really want just a little something more, top off the ice cream with a little warm chocolate or caramel sauce and you’re set!
I’m just saying…:)
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES
1 (regular size) chocolate cake mix with pudding
1/3 cup vegetable oil or butter, softened
2 large eggs, room temperature
1-2 tablespoons milk, if necessary (add 1 teaspoon at a time)
1 cup chocolate chunks
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
2. Combine the cake mix, oil and eggs in large bowl with a heavy spoon until blended. Add milk 1 teaspoon at a time, if necessary. Stir in chocolate chunks, mix well.
3. Scoop the dough into even size balls, approximately 1-inch, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. (I always make mine bigger, but that’s just personal preference).
4. Bake cookies until set around edges, approximately 10-12 minutes, depending on oven. Do not over bake cookies. If cookies are over baked they will become hard, and tough to chew. Cool for about 2 minutes on cookie sheets, then remove cookies with spatula to wire racks to cool completely.
