You can never have enough cookie recipes, right? That’s the reason why we are trying out different recipes and will share the best with you here – of course only if they passed our high standard requirements and extended testing like this recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies.

You could now argue that chocolate chip cookies are chocolate chip cookies but well… that’s not right!

These lovely guys are different than the ones we posted some time ago. The inner part of the cookie is even softer and gives a good contrast to the sides of the cookie which has a nice little crunch.

With this cookie recipe you will have an easy and quick option to create a sweet little snack on your own. Whether it is for yourself, for your kids (as you will make sure you know what your kids eat), for a birthday to have something you can bring along or if you invite someone over for coffee time. They are still an all-time favourite.

Difficulty

Quick and simple recipe achieveable for everyone.

Baking tools

You will need a stand mixer or hand mixer, a bowl, 2 baking plates (1 is also fine) and parchment paper. A cookie scoop can come in handy for shaping the cookies so they all have the same size, but it is not necessary.

Besides that you can have a look at our list of baking tools that we are constantly using.

  • Put one baking plate in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 12 minutes

5. Cool

Conclusion

Taste

As already pointed out in our introduction, these chewy chocotlate chip cookies differ from the ones we already shared with you here. While both types of cookies are very delicious, these ones are even nicer as they are super soft and – well – chewy in the middle. The outer part of the cookies is nicely crunchy which gives it a great contrast in itself.

Same as the other ones, they are melting in the mouth and the combination of dough and chocolate is just heavenly.

Give them a try and we promise you will not regret it.
