Big and Thick Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These big and thick double chocolate chip cookies were a huge hit in our house!  Packed with mini chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips!  Made with white whole wheat flour.  I used brown sugar and powdered sugar in this recipe.  We love cookies here in our home.  I can easily eat half a batch of homemade cookies.  No, seriously I can and I will.  So, I decided to create a recipe with less fat and sugar.  Well, here it is!

I’m really not a fan of cakey chocolate chip cookies.  I will eat one, if I have to.  Just saying..  

Anyway, I’ve made tons of chocolate chip cookies and have been disappointed.  Chocolate chip cookies should not be cakey!  That’s my opinion on that.  The trick to these is to flatten them out.  Think like… making a hamburger patty.  Perfect!  If you don’t flatten them, they will slightly puff up.  Trust me on this ok.  

Never mind the chipped finger nail polish.  Carry on and admire this big and thick double chocolate chip cookie!  I know you want to pluck off that little piece of milk chocolate morsel.  Admit it!  

And guess what this cookie is perfect for?  Yes, you guessed it!  Dunking in a cold glass of milk!  They truly are perfect for milk dunking. 

This is a cookie that may give you a problem.  Ok, this is a pretty big cookie and what happens to big cookies?  Sometimes they don’t fit in the glass of milk.  I know, I know…that’s a deal breaker.  But you’re a problem solver, right?  Here’s how we can solve this “problem”.  “Nom..nom..nom!” (Cookie monster eating cookies!)  You know the sound.

Even the “Mogwai”, which means baby gremlin (from the movie – Gremlins), enjoyed eating a cookie.  I assure you, I did not feed the “Magwai” after midnight!  That would have been bad!

  1. I normally don't have the patience to chill choc. chip cookie dough. You could bake them immediately. I found them to taste better after being chilled. I ran out of time and ended up placing the dough in the fridge, because we had to leave somewhere. The next morning I proceeded to finish baking the cookies and they did taste better after being chilled overnight.

Mix it all up.Add the 6 drops of red food coloring. Mix it in thoroughly.Feel the bowl with the butter. If you can cup your hands around it comfortably, you can add it to your mixing bowl now.

If it’s still too warm to add, wait until it’s cooler and then do it.Add the flour in half cup increments, beating after each addition.Stir in one cup chocolate chips by hand.Spread the batter evenly into a greased 9-13 inch pan. Bake at 350% for 25 minutes or until it feels firm on the top.Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle it with the remaining two cups of chocolate chips. Immediately cover with a inverted cookie sheet. Let it sit for three minutes. Then take of the cookie sheet, and spread out the melted chips like frosting with a spatula.Cool completely and then cut into brownie sized squares.
