The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


Delicious and chewy chocolate chip cookies, golden brown and loaded with chocolate chips.

The greatest traditional, chewy chocolate chip cookies have a few tricks up their sleeves. First, choose a combination of milk, semisweet, and dark chocolate chunks rather than using chips. The second is to allow the dough to rest for at least an entire night for a richer, toffee-like flavor. Finally, use an ice cream scooper to consistently get cookies of the same size. That’s all, then! These minor adjustments produce a cookie that is soft and gooey inside and textured on the outside. absolutely ideal

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 HOUR 5 minutes


  • 4 oz dark chocolate chunk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunks



  1. The sugars, salt, and butter should all be combined in a large basin and whisked until a smooth paste develops.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating until thin ribbons start to form on the whisk and drop them back into the mixture.
  3. Add the baking soda and flour, and then fold the mixture with a spatula (Be careful not to overmix, which would cause the gluten in the flour to toughen resulting in cakier cookies).
  4. The dough should chill for at least 30 minutes after the chocolate pieces have been added. Refrigerate the dough for an entire night to give it a flavor and color more akin to toffee. The flavor of the dough will get more nuanced the longer it rests.
  5. Oven should be heated to 350°F (180°C). Use parchment paper to cover a baking sheet.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, portion the dough onto a baking sheet fitted with parchment paper, leaving at least 4 inches (10 cm) between cookies and 2 inches (5 cm) between cookies and the pan’s corners to allow for equal spreading.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until just beginning to brown around the edges.
  8. Prior to serve, complete cooling.
  9. Enjoy!
