Who doesn't like a good chocolate cookie?! I don't think such people exist, to be honest. Chocolate cookies eaten on their own or even better, dunked in milk, provide you a next level experience. I connect these with cold weather, warm feeling under the blanket, hot cup of coffee, milk or hot chocolate and a movie.

Regular chocolate cookies can be improved by adding something crunchy into the batter. My favorite addition are always toasted and roughly chopped hazelnuts, but you can use some other nuts, of course.

When it comes to choosing the cookie size, kids will like giant chocolate cookies. They are both, fun to make and to be eaten.

I must say I prefer regular sized cookies, but this decision is totally up to you.

  • 380 g flour (13.4 oz)
  • 130 g sugar (4.6 oz)
  • 100 g brown sugar (3.5 oz)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 220 g cold butter (7.8 oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300 g chocolate chunks (10.6 oz)

Mix butter with sugars until fluffy. Next, add one egg at a time. Add vanilla extract and mix until nicely combined.
Now it’s time to add dry ingredients that you’ve previously combined together. That’s flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder. Incorporate them gently. I like to do this part with a spatula.
When combined, add chopped chocolate and hazelnuts if using. Incorporate evenly.
Prepare a baking tray. I like to weigh the batter so that I get uniformed cookies, 50 g each. Or 100 if you wanna make the large ones. Arrange the cookies on a baking tray and give them enough space as they spread a lot during baking.
Preheat the oven to 190°C of 370 F. Bake them for about 15 minutes.
