We LOVE sweet treats in this house and these Chewy Chocolate Cookies are one of my kids’ favorite recipes that my mom makes with them! They are slightly crispy on the outside, but full of fudge-like chewiness on the inside! It’s truly the perfect cookie consistency and NO ONE can eat just one! The best part? The recipe makes a TON of them (4.5 dozen to be exact) and it’s a very simple recipe at that… let’s take a look!
The recipe is below and super simple. Once you mix together your wet ingredients, you’ll fold in the dry ingredients and get to scooping. If the batter is too runny, put it in the fridge for a little while to chill, then scoop out.
Bake for 8-9 minutes at 350º F then let cool for a few minutes out of the oven before transferring to a plate or wire rack.
The cookies themselves will come out with a slight crunch on the outside, but a soft, fudge-like inside that’s to die for! It’s the perfect combination!
We made these at my house this week and everyone wanted more! They are seriously the best chocolate cookies out there! Don’t miss out!!
Everyone will be begging you for this easy cookie recipe…don’t believe me, try them yourself! 🙂
