Feb 28, 2024 | Desserts





As a food critic and avid baker, I have had the pleasure of tasting countless cookies in my lifetime, but there is one particular recipe that holds a special place in my heart – the Thick, Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies with Slightly Crisp Edges. These cookies are an ode to my childhood memories of baking with my grandmother on lazy Sunday afternoons.

Double Chocolate Cookies


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pink and red M&Ms

Chocolate Chips


1. Preheat and Prepare

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Mix Dry Ingredients

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

3. Cream Butter and Sugars

In a separate large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

4. Add Egg and Vanilla

Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture and beat until smooth.

5. Mix in Dry Ingredients

Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until a thick cookie dough forms.

6. Fold in Mix-Ins

Gently fold in the chocolate chips and M&Ms until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

7. Form Dough Balls

Use a cookie scoop to form large dough balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each cookie.

8. Bake

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are slightly crisp and the centers are set.

9. Cool and Enjoy

Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • For an extra indulgent twist, sandwich a scoop of your favorite ice cream between two cookies to make a decadent ice cream sandwich.
  • If you prefer a gooey center, slightly underbake the cookies and let them continue to cook on the hot baking sheet outside the oven for a few minutes.

These Thick, Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies with Slightly Crisp Edges are a delightful treat that is sure to please any chocolate lover. Whether enjoyed with a glass of milk or shared with friends and family, these cookies hold a special place in my heart as a reminder of the joy that baking can bring.
