I have been perfecting this recipe for a long time but I believe I’ve finally cracked it! May I present to you – the best EVER chocolate chip cookie recipe. Crunchy on the outside – chewy in the middle. Sheer chunky cookie perfection!
This is what you will need to make approx 18 large cookies.
- 160g Unsalted Butter, melted
- 250g Plain Flour
- 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 x 100g Bars of Milk Chocolate
- 1x 100g Bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
- 220g Soft Light Brown Sugar
- 110g Caster Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1tbsp Vanilla Extract
Put the butter in a small saucepan and heat until melted. (Or melt in the microwave.) Leave to one side.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda & salt. Mix together and leave to one side.
Chop the milk chocolate bars into chunks & set to one side with the chocolate chips. (I know it sounds a lot but it all adds to the overall flavour & texture – trust me!)
Either in a stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk – mix together the brown sugar, caster sugar & melted butter until it looks a little something like this…
This next step is very important – place the dough into a glass bowl, cover with cling film and put in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Overnight is better if you have the time. Chilling the dough completely stops each cookie from spreading too much during baking, giving you a beautiful chunky cookie as opposed to a flat greasy cookie.
Using an ice cream scoop, (mine measures approx 5cm diameter x 2.5cm deep) place level scoopfuls of the dough onto a baking tray. I line mine with a silicone baking sheet but you don’t really need to. Make sure to leave room in between each dough ball for spreading.
And there you have it. The most beautiful chocolate chip cookies that there ever was. A satisfyingly crunchy edge with a chunky chewy middle. Absolutely jam packed full of chocolatey goodness. I am head over heels in love with these cookies and I am pretty sure I will never get sick of eating them! They also come complete with the Mr’s approval – so they’ve got to be good!
I sincerely hope you give these a try – I promise you won’t regret it.
Until next time my lovelies!
