I have to say the 326,578,22 recipes I have tried for chocolate chip cookies out there, this is BY FAR my favorite. The ultimate chocolate chip cookie really lives up to its name!
Each bite is filled with so much chocolate that it will leave your taste buds wanting more. This cookie offers a little crunch on the outside but has a moist chewy center. OMG, I am literally salivating seeing the picture and I had to go an eat one while I was blogging about it!
Loving chocolate is not for the faint of heart. I adore anything that has chocolate in it, on it, around it, literally anything. Thank God I am not allergic to it! You should also check out my Chocolate fudge pudding cake if you want another chocolate fix!
We literally had our first snow fall here in Wisconsin. Yes, it was only about a quarter of an inch, but it was enough to make me bitter. Norah was ready to make a snowman and Sam asked if he should wear his boots to school yet? Seriously, I am not ready for another polar vortex (farmer’s almanac is predicting again)! I told them not today, but hey Thursday (Halloween) they are calling for 2-6 in! So a snowman and boots may be in order!
A cold weather tradition in my family was always to make ultimate chocolate chip cookies. I still remember the smells in my mom’s kitchen when they were baking and the taste of them right out of the oven. I would eat these right after dinner with a cold glass of milk. Nothing pairs better with a cookie than a cold glass of udder honey!
Ok, so I know this is a baking blog, but I had to show you our family Halloween picture. I love Halloween as I mentioned with my Halloween Chocolate cupcake recipe, but I love dressing up more. We were a family of Vampires with our little bat Jacob. No, I didn’t get any candy as I had hoped for, but I for sure sneaked some of the kids candy when they weren’t looking!
How to make the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
There are two things that make this cookie “ultimate”. Number one, the melted chocolate that is folded in to the batter along with the actual chocolate chips. Plus the love that goes into the labor making them!
The recipe is not a difficult one. You mix all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. In a small pot, put 2 cups of chocolate chips and heat on medium to melt down. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Once that is mixed well, pour in melted chocolate. Then gradually add in dry ingredients. Lastly, stir in remaining 2 cups of chocolate chips. Drop on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes.
