What is the Story Behind These Chewy Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies?

I don’t know about you, but I crave chocolate every day!  And it can be anything, from a chocolate bar to a chocolate cookie.

So when I decided to make my usual batch of our chewy chocolate chip cookies, I only needed to add some unsweetened cocoa powder to my recipe, and voila! 

I turned my normal batch of chocolate chip cookie dough into a Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookie dough. 

Then bake them into these amazingly chewy-delicious cookies!

***Best of all,  these cookies are made with all-natural and clean ingredients…. No fillers…  No palm oil…  and, No preservatives!

Ingredients Needed for These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies…

  • butter – unsalted butter or cream butter.
  • brown sugar – I used light brown sugar.
  • granulated sugar – just a few tablespoons are added in.
  • egg – one large egg is required for this recipe.
  • vanilla extract – of course, to enhance the flavors of the cookies.
  • salt – to balance the sugars.
  • baking powder and baking soda – to make these cookies rise.
  • unsweetened cocoa powder – to make their dark chocolate cookies.
  • unbleached flour – needed to give cookies texture.
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips – to give them the extra chocolate flavor and crunch in every bite.


  • Use a teaspoon to grab some cookie dough make balls and place them onto a cookie sheet (as I did in the photo).
  • Do not flatten out the cookie dough. This will give you a “thicker” cookie, and a chewy texture.
  • Do not overbake. So it’s best to keep an eye on them.
  • Also, keep in mind, that all ovens vary. So when you start to smell the chocolate aroma from your oven, the cookies are almost done baking. This is when you will need to check on them.

How To Store These Cookies 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 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 overbake them.  This will ensure a chewy texture to the cookie; so it’s always a good idea to set your timer to 8 minutes for small cookies and about 10 for slightly larger ones.

Don’t forget to PIN your cookie or dessert board!  Thanks so much!
