These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies whip up easily and are intensely chocolatey with rich, chewy texture! They’re perfect for Valentine’s Day or anytime you want a decadent chocolate cookie.
Cookies are always good, especially if chocolate is involved! And cookies are even better if double chocolate is involved. But when cookies support a great cause, it’s the best-case scenario.
For the fourth year in a row, Julie from The Little Kitchen organized an event called the Good Cookies Food Bloggers’ Valentines Event to support Cookies for Kid’s Cancer.
Cancer is the leading cause of children’s disease-related death in the U.S. Right now, 40,000 children here are actively battling cancer. And less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget goes to childhood cancer. This is why Julie got involved. Last year, she raised $76K through this event! That is absolutely amazing, right?!
Last year, I shared my Small Batch Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe for this event.
The goal is to raise $3,000 in donations. The three event sponsors (Dixie Crystals, MediaVine, and OXO) have each agreed to match the donations up to $3,000! You can read more about this event here or donate here.
I have so much respect for Julie for her incredible work supporting such a great cause! And thank you, Dear Readers, for reading and considering donating. Please do what you can, even if it’s just helping to spread the word about childhood cancer awareness. xoxo, Faith
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
I first came up with this recipe a few years back when I lived in DC. Mike (my now ex-husband), asked me for a homemade version of the Subway Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and that’s exactly what I came up with. I can’t believe it took me so long to share the recipe! These cookies are his absolute favorite and I still send a box of them to him for his birthday every year.
If you like the Subway Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, you’ll love these!
These cookies are slightly crisp outside with a chewy texture inside. They have a rich chocolate flavor, thanks to the use of cocoa powder in the dough.
I use a little bit of espresso in the dough, which helps pull out the complex flavor notes of chocolate. Don’t skip the molasses, it adds depth of flavor and helps make these cookies chewy.
And of course the double chocolate part of these Double Chocolate Chip Cookies comes from the fact that these chocolate cookies are studded with chocolate chips!
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe Ingredients:
- All-purpose flour
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Baking soda
- Unsalted butter
- Egg yolk
- Blackstrap molasses
- Pure vanilla extract
- Instant espresso powder
- Semisweet chocolate chips
See the recipe card below for specific measurements.
How to Make Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies are as easy to make as regular Chocolate Chip Cookies! However, it’s important to give the dough time to chill in the fridge for at least one day. This step greatly improves the flavor and texture of these cookies.
Steps For Making These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies:
- Make the dough.
- Chill the dough; don’t be tempted to skip this step! Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 1 day, but up to 3 days. Let the dough rest at room temperature for 45 minutes before baking.
- Bake the dough.
- Cool the cookies.
- Store the cookies!
See the recipe card below for detailed instructions.
How to Store Cookies
I store these cookies the same way I store drop cookies like regular Chocolate Chip Cookies. Layer these cookies between wax paper in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Calories
Talk of calories can sometimes take the fun out of eating a cookie, lol! But if you’re being mindful of your calorie intake, it’s important.
These cookies are decadent and quite large, so just one cookie is a serving! Honestly, they’re so rich you might be satisfied with just half a cookie.
