Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time:
35 min
15 min
20 min

10 to 12 cookies

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, such as Ghiradelli, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, such as Nestle Toll House
  • Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats. Set aside.

  • In a small bowl, combine the bittersweet chocolate and butter. Place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water and stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, 2 tablespoons water and vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients and stir until thick and smooth. Fold in the melted chocolate. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a cookie or ice cream scoop, scoop level 1/4 cupfuls of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until slightly puffed and the tops begin to crack, 18 to 20 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheets and serve.

Hey how much bittersweet chocolate do you put in. It just says melt bittersweet chocolate but there is no bittersweet chocolate in the list of ingrediants item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are SUPER yummy cookies item not reviewed by moderator and published
Look, this cookie is not good. I hate to write poor reviews, but I don't want other people to be fooled into making an unsatisfying cookie. Avoid this recipe unless you're looking for an uninspiring, lackluster, cakey cookie. I think most of us want ooey gooey decadent double chocolate cookies-- this recipe won't give you that. On the upside, the cookie dough is yummy. I stopped baking these cookies after I saw how they turned out & just stuck the dough in the freezer to satisfy those late night chocolate cravings ;. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not sure if I messed this one up somehow. I followed the recipe and the cookies taste good but they don't stand out. I can't tell if they need a little more salt or maybe I didn't put enough sugar. They aren't sweet enough for my taste. I did notice that in the ingredients list it calls for 6 ounces of semisweet chocolate cut 1/2'' thick, but underneath, in the directions it says bittersweet chocolate. I went with bittersweet ghiradelli to melt with the butter since I used semisweet chips. Cookies tend to taste different the next day so I'll try another one tomorrow and see if it's better. I'm highly critical... They're definitely tasty, don't get me wrong. I haven't made a cookie in a while, maybe I'm rusty. As always, thank you for sharing your recipe Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were wonderful! I think I was using a smaller size of scoop, so I ended up with quite a bit more than the yield says (I also doubled the recipe, but who can complain about having a few extra cookies to go around? It was really easy, I just followed the recipe, and they turned out great. I even live above 7000 ft, forgot to adjust for altitude, and they still turned out perfect. They were rich, so incredibly chocolatey, and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were awesome! I didn't semi-sweet chocolate in mine pantry so I melted dark chocolate and used butterscotch chips and they were amazing! The kids loved them too! Will definitely make again! I really like how it only made a dozen cookies instead of 3. I couldn't overdo it then since I'm on a diet and all! : item not reviewed by moderator and published

These are incredibly rich and wonderfully good. They are a little cakey for me, but they do taste incredible. I would rather them be thinner, but still soft. Not sure what I'd change to make that happen. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hey Brenda, I'm pretty sure the first entry for semisweet chocolate is a typo, and that 6oz should be for bittersweet. <i>I was writing down the recipe when I noticed that and that's the best answer I could come up with.</i> item not reviewed by moderator and published
