No-Chill Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

1. Set an oven rack to the center position, then preheat your oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet (2 if you have them) with parchment paper.

Preheat the Oven

2. Cut your cold butter into cubes & then place in a medium mixing bowl along with the light brown sugar and granulated sugar.

Add to a Medium Mixing Bowl

3. Start on low speed and increase to medium speed until all of the butter & sugar have thoroughly been combined.

Mix until Combined

4. Add in the eggs & vanilla extract to the bowl, mix on medium low until combined.

Add the Eggs

5. Add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, & salt. Mix on the lowest speed until combined. You will get a thick dough and it may look like you need more liquid, but don’t add any!

Add the Dry Ingredients

6. Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto your cookie sheet leaving about 2” between each scoop.

Scoop the Dough

7. Press 6 - 7 chocolate chips into the tops of each cookie & sprinkle lightly with salt if using.

Press & Sprinkle

8. Place one sheet of cookies in the fridge to hold while the first batch bakes. Place the other batch on the center rack of the hot oven.

Chill & Bake

9. Bake 8 minutes for gooey fudgy cookies or 10 minutes for cakelike fudgy cookies. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Bake Until Fudgy

10. Bake the second sheet of cookies the same as the first.
