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 and winter are the best times of year to bake cookies.

It’s 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 or a caffe latte in my hand.

So, what are you waiting for? This is 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 have ever made, and I encourage everyone to try this recipe.

Reasons to LOVE these Ultimate Bittersweet Chocolate Chip Cookies…

  • The bittersweet chocolate chips, which are in fact a combination of both bitter dark chocolate and sweet dark chocolate give it the intense chocolate flavor.
  • Made in One Bowl, and baked in minutes.
  • These cookies are made with staple pantry ingredients.
  • This recipe will yield 4 dozen cookies.
  • As soon as these cookies are out of the oven and before they get to cool on the rack, they disappear!
  • Super-thin, chewy, buttery soft with warm melted bittersweet chips.
  • They are so good, everyone will devour them.

When everyone grabs a warm cookie as soon as they come out of the oven, it’s dripping all over their hands and lips.  It’s the best!

Mmm …  could someone pass me some milk, please!

How to Keep These Chocolate Chip Cookies Chewy?

To keep these cookies chewy for days, it’s best to store them in a container while they are still warm. But not too warm to handle.
