Chocolate cookies are one of those treats that I love so much, I rarely make them because they are so addictive.  A really good chocolate cookie and a glass of milk can be bliss.  However, I have tried my fair share of chocolate cookie recipes and they have not all been great.  Some are too thin, dry, or crunchy.  I still have several chocolate cookie recipes bookmarked to try – but this one was definitely worthy of sharing.  I made these for some friends who happen to love chocolate, and it ended up taking several days to get them delivered.  It took all my will power not to eat the whole batch in the meantime!  (I had to eat one, for blogging purposes, and then I ate one more the next day in a moment of weakness.)  These are chewy, intensely chocolate, and truly fabulous with a cold glass of milk.  I think I will have to make a batch for myself very, very soon.


Chewy Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Yield: 12-14 cookies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup dutch-process cocoa powder*
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, cubed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped white chocolate (I used about 6 oz.)

*Substituting all natural cocoa powder is not recommended.  (I used a blend of natural and dutch-process since that was all my store had).

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder.  Whisk together and set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.  Add the sugars and cream on medium-high speed.  Add the vanilla extract and mix well.  Add half of the flour mixture, beating on low speed just until incorporated.  Add the milk and mix until combined.  Add the remaining flour mixture and beat on low speed just until dry ingredients have been mixed in.  Gently fold in the chopped white chocolate with a rubber spatula.  Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Scoop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheets using a medium-sized cookie dough scoop (about 3 tbsp. of dough), pressing down slightly.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating pans top to bottom and front to back halfway through baking.  Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheets.  Store in an airtight container.

    These look delicious! I’m not usually a chocolate cookie fan but I probably wouldn’t pass up on this one! :)

  • i was JUST thinking i need to make white chocolate cookies. i think i will use this. :)

  • These look great! I’m a huge fan of the chewy type of cookies, so I have to give this a try the soonest :P Does the chewy texture remain the next day?

  • Thank you thank you! The only reliably soft, chewy chocolate cookie recipe I have is one that involves a cake mix. Thanks for sharing!

  • I love CCC and you’re so right they are not all good. This one looks delish.

  • Annie, those cookies look amazing. I could eat a dozen right now.

  • Wow.. these look fantastic!! I wish I had some right now. Thank God you cant gain weight looking at pictures or my but would be the size of Texas.

  • These are some of the most tempting cookies I have seen in a long time. I am a chewy cookie fan, so I will be bookmarking this. Nothing is more perfectly indulgent than a cookie and a glass of cold milk.

    Those look great, I love seeing what goodies you bake up!

    I just made these last night too! They are always a big hit. Brown Eyed Baker calls them an Oreo knockoff. They don’t remind me of an Oreo at all, but they are just yummy, chocolatey goodness! I’m glad to know this is a favorite of someone else!

  • They look really nice, I like how there is so crackling. I’ve never seen a cookie recipe with so much milk! Does it make it too cakey?

  • Erin

    I forgot about these cookies- I bookmarked them a while ago to try. Maybe I’ll get to it soon. I love chocolate cookies (and they are great with white chocolate chips), and these look delicious!

  • This cookies looks great! I’ll try it! I already copied the Chocolate Cake Cookie Sandwiches! Your blog is awesome! I linked at my blog. I hope you don’t mind.

  • I make this recipe all of the time! they are SO SOS good!! I am craving them now!

    I just baked cookies similar to these. My recipe calls for baking chocolate, melted. They turned out awesome! Too bad I don’t have any left that I could send ya to compare the two! Chocolate cookies are to die for!

  • These look delectable! I love white chocolate.

    This is my very favorite cookie recipe! Actually, it’s quite a problem. I can’t make them very often because I certainly eat more than my fair share! I try to give away as many as possible, but I still wind up eating sooo many! (And I always receive great compliments for the ones I manage to give away.)

  • Thank you for this recipe. I tried this out last weekend and came out fantastic.

  • Nikki

    I made your peanut butter chocolate cupcakes this morning and had left over frosting, so I used the remainder on these cookies. So good!

    Hi! I made these this morning, substituting dutch-process cocoa for natural cocoa (it’s all I had on-hand). To make up for the chemical differences, I just replaced the baking powder with half the amount of baking soda, and it seemed to work out well :-) I also made the cookies a little smaller, and my only advice would be to make sure to undercook them a little bit to keep them chewy after they cool. Thanks!!!

  • Annie, you never disappoint! Excellent, excellent recipe once again, and just the cookie recipe I was looking for! Thanks :)

    I just made these..they’re great- just the right texture- but VERY rich. The taste was almost too cocoa-powder-y, as opposed to a chocolate flavor, if that makes sense. That said, they were delicious with a glass of milk. I think I maybe just overdid it with the cocoa powder. Next time I’d use a bit less than called for.
