I want to love cooking. But instead, I love baking. Baking fills the house with warm delicious smells and the results are usually warm and delicious flavors. One of my favorite things to bake is chocolate chunk cookies. There is a specific chocolate chunk cookie recipe that I love to make because the results are always amazing.
This chocolate chunk cookie recipe can also be made with chocolate chips if you are out of chunks and is a great recipe to make with the kids!
I always have the baking essentials on hand. My stand mixer, baking mats, cookie scoop, and my apron are a fixture in our kitchen. I love finding great new recipes, cookbooks, and tricks to making delicious desserts for the whole family!
I just made this chocolate chunk cookie recipe last week to take to Coach Marcus and upon reminding myself of how ooey gooey amazing they are, figured you would love them too.
Our favorite part of making these is that EACH and EVERY time, we wonder if there will be enough dough to hold the chocolate together.
Don’t worry, there is enough dough. In fact, there’s just enough dough in this recipe to make the cookies the best chocolate chunk cookies you’ve ever made. Though they may not last long in your home because everyone will eat them up fast.
