The Ultimate Bittersweet Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Moist, chewy and LOADED with good wholesome ingredients and melted bittersweet chocolate chips is what makes these cookies the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies ever!  They stay chewy for 3 days, if they last that long!

Do you remember the old-fashioned buttery chocolate chip cookies we enjoyed as kids?  The ones that were soft, chewy and melted-in-your-mouth with every bite.  Well, these are those childhood favorite chocolate chip cookies that will bring back those wonderful memories!

The fall is that time of year when I like to start my baking obsession.  I love to throw on a pair of jeans, a soft sweater and enjoy those cool, crisp evenings with a hot cup of tea in my hand.

It’s the best time of year to get back into baking, and the first thing I like to do is bake up a batch of these ultimate bittersweet chocolate chip cookies!





These cookies are really the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe we ever made, and I encourage everyone to try this recipe.  We love the taste of the bittersweet chocolate chips, which are in fact a combination of  both bitter dark chocolate and sweet dark chocolate.

And as soon as I pull these cookies out of the oven and before they get to cool on the rack, they disappear!

They were so good, everyone couldn’t stop eating them!  Super-chewy, buttery soft with warm melted bittersweet chips dripping all over our hands and lips.  Mmm …  could someone pass me some milk please!
