Quality ingredients is what makes these favorite chocolate chip cookies so good.  The ingredients are so simple, yet the overall result is always amazingly chewy with a decadent chocolate taste in very bite.

How do these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies stay chewy for days?

One tip I know always works for me, is to store these cookies in a sealed plastic container, before they cool completely.  You have to store them while they are still warm,  not hot – just warm enough to handle them.

Best to line the bottom of the the container with a sheet of wax paper to protect the cookies from getting stuck on the bottom of the container.

Another good tip is to always keep an eye on them while baking,  not to over bake them.  This will ensure a chewy texture to the cookie; so it’s always a good idea to set your timer to 8 minutes.

These Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are incredibly chewy, chocolaty and made with simple pantry items, you'll never need to buy a box again! Added as a bonus, they're quick, easy and ready in 15 minutes! Most of all, they stay chewy for days!
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick)- very soft, even slightly melted
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 + ¾ cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1+ ¼ cups Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In ONE bowl, beat sugars with butter, vanilla and egg. Add salt, baking soda and baking powder and beat for 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually add the flour and beat until well combined. Scrape and remove cookie dough off beaters.
  3. With a large wooden spoon, stir in the DARK chocolate morsels. Cookie dough will be soft and ready for baking.
  4. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookies sheets or on parchment paper and space them about 2-inches apart.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes for smaller cookies, and 10 minutes for larger size. Cookies will be golden and brown around the edges. Remove from oven and transfer cookies onto a wire rack to cool for a few minutes more. Then store cookies in a sealed plastic container while they are still warm. They will stay fresh and chewy for days.
  6. Yields: about 3 dozen
The dark chocolate morsels are slightly larger in size; therefore, 1 cup of dark chocolate morsels will be sufficient in this recipe. If you choose to use semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chips you will need 1 + ½ cups.
