I was recently looking through my family recipe box, when I came across my grandma’s old recipe for traditional chocolate cookies. It brought back so many memories that I just had to make them! After making the recipe as written, I decided to try them again, with one small adjustment.

The only thing I did differently was to add in some more cocoa powder, but I can’t believe how incredibly good they turned out! These cookies have a wonderfully rich chocolate flavor that is perfect for satisfying even the strongest chocolate cravings.

They are moist, chewy, and really easy to customize by switching out the types of chips you use. You could even try adding coconut or your favorite nuts. There are so many options!

As a busy mom, I think the best cookies are easy to make and freeze beautifully. I can make a double batch, pack them into a freezer bag, and pull them out a little bit at a time.

Today’s easy double chocolate chip cookies are ideal for this. Add this recipe to your collection today.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Save yourself clean-up time by lining your cookie sheet with parchment paper before baking. I have found that I can reuse the same sheets of parchment for an entire batch of cookies.
  • This recipe works equally well using an electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • For best results, allow your ingredients to come to room temperature before you start baking.
  • I highly recommend you get yourself a cookie scoop! Using a scoop ensures that each of your cookies are a uniform size and shape, which also means even baking. It is a must-have kitchen tool for any home baker.
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Keep them in a single layer or between wax paper. They can also be frozen and will last for up to 3 months this way.
