The ultimate recipe to get ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookies every single time! It's a chocolate chip overload in a perfect bakery-style cookie.

Chocolate chip cookies are basically an essential recipe for bakers, right? Well personally chocolate chip cookies were my Mt Everest! I would whip up a batch and about 6 out of 10 times, they would flat out fail. I could never figure out what went wrong! Time after time I couldn’t figure out a recipe or trick that would make a delicious (and gorgeous) chocolate chip cookie every time. Thankfully I didn't give up.

I’m glad to say that (only about a gajillion failed attempts later) I finally figured it out. I was able to tweak my recipes and fine tune them into one consistent recipe. Check out the recipe and check out additional tips at my blog that can guarantee those gorgeous looking cookies every time!

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, place softened butter and both sugars. Mix together until combined.
Add in vanilla, instant coffee powder, and egg until mixture is pale and fluffy.
Gradually mix in the flour, baking soda, and sea salt until combined. Finally, stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
Scoop spoonfuls of dough onto sheet, about 2 inches apart. With the remaining chocolate chips, place on top of cookie scoops to get that perfect cookie look!
Place into fridge or freezer for at least 15 minutes or until chilled.
When ready, bake cookies for 8-12 minutes. Take them out when cookies are starting to brown on the edges but the center still looks uncooked.
Leave cookies in pan and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Then remove from pan and enjoy your perfectly ooey-gooey cookies!*
  • For that bakery style look: while cookies are fresh out of the oven, lightly bury additional chocolate chips into the surface. Allow to melt down and use the end of utensil to lightly smooth out the chocolate chip to create a puddle of chocolate!
