These Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies are my husband’s favorite cookies. Whenever he gets a hankering for chocolate, these are my go-to cookie!
Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, and I wanted to make something special for my husband. I know how much he loves Ina Garten’s Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies, so I decided to make them for him.
Without a doubt, these cookies are our absolute favorite! The unsweetened cocoa pairs quite nicely with the sugary-sweet white chocolate, but we also like to add semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mix to round everything out. The end result is a perfect “chocolate lover’s” cookie that’s crunchy on the outside, yet chewy on the inside.
CHOCOLATE WHITE CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES
Makes approximately 40 small cookies, or 24 big ones like mine, as seen in the pictures above.
- 1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 extra-large eggs, room temperature
- 2/3 cup good unsweetened cocoa (I use Hershey’s – nothing fancy)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate chips (Ina uses white chocolate chunks, but I just had chips on hand)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Cream the butter and both sugars, until light and fluffy, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
Step 3: Add the vanilla, then the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix well. Add the cocoa and mix again.
Step 4: Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; add to the chocolate batter with the mixer on low speed until just combined. (The batter will be incredibly thick.)
Step 5: Fold in both the white chocolate and the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Step 6: Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a rounded tablespoon. Dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly.
Step 7: Bake for exactly 15 minutes. (FYI – The cookies will seem underdone, but if you cook them any longer, they will burn and harden.)
Step 8:Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Step 9: Enjoy your cookies with a big ‘ole glass of ice cold milk!
Baker’s Notes: There seems to be some discrepancy over whether “1 teaspoon of baking powder” should also be added to the ingredients list. Apparently, on her episode, she does mention it; however, I’ve never added baking powder, and it’s not on the web site. Just thought I’d let you know.
