The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever

Really, this is The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe ever in my opinion. This recipe has no funny, unnecessary ingredients. Pretty simple and straightforward, amazingly sweet cookies that everyone will enjoy. This is doughy yet completely cooked through, and it turns out perfectly each time.

This is everything you expect from a Chocolate Chip Cookie. Crispy in the outside, chewy in the inside. It’s a little bit doughy but it is fully baked through. It is amazingly buttery and perfectly sweet. Yup, this is definitely The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe ever! I’ve been making these for years and my kids are in love. They enjoyed dipping it in milk. Yum!

How to Make The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever?

In a large bowl, cream the sugars with softened butter, and add one egg at a time, then the vanilla extract. Beat until creamy and wet (but not runny). In a separate bowl, add all the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Fold the dry ingredients to the creamed butter until well-combined. At this stage, add the chocolate chips and fold. Roll the dough into balls, whatever size you prefer. In this recipe, I measured my dough balls to 1 tablespoon each. Arrange the dough balls on the baking sheet with spaces in between to prevent the cookies from sticking to each other when it spreads. In your preheated oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), bake the cookies for 8-12 minutes. In my case, my cookies were ready in 10-12 minutes. It really depends on the size of the dough balls and your oven, so make sure to watch your cookies while it bakes. Take them out of the oven just before the edges turn brown. It will feel soft when it’s out of the oven but it will get harden when it cools down.

  • Feel free to adjust the measurement of the sugar if you feel like it is too sweet for your liking.
  • Use softened butter and not melted butter. Cream it with the sugars, then add the eggs and vanilla extract until fluffy.
  • Rolling each dough into balls depending on the size that you prefer, I used 1 tablespoon for this recipe. You may try 2 or 3 tablespoons of dough. Take note though that baking time will vary. Small dough balls will bake faster than big cookie dough. Watch your cookies!
  • Alternatively, you can use ice cream scooper (small or big) to make your cookie dough balls.
  • You can always add more chocolate chips. I like to use dark chocolate chips, but you can use milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.

  • Use softened butter for this recipe. 
  • Brown sugar has molasses, that will make the cookies nice and crunchy in the outside.
  • I use dark chocolate chip cookies but you are more than welcome to use milk chocolate or white chocolate chips in yours. 
  • Too little flour can cause cookies to be flat, greasy and crispy.
  •  Adding baking soda to your cookies help it to spread outward and upward while cooking.

Marshmallow Choc-Chip Cookies

Marshmallow Choc-Chip Cookies are basically chocolate chip cookies with mini marshmallows on top. They are crunchy on the outside and chewy in the inside and marshmallowy on top.

How to Make Marshmallow Choc-Chip Cookies?

To make these yummy Marshmallow Choc-Chip Cookies, you have to mix all the wet ingredients first. Then sift the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. When all the dry ingredients are sifted, mix it with the wet ones. This time use those tiny, gentle hands to make the dough. Knead in the chocolate chips until it’s incorporated. Scoop out teaspoonfuls of mixture, laying each one on the baking trays (sheets). It’s important to leave enough spaces between them as they will spread as they cook.  Bake them in a preheated oven of 180 degrees C for 12-15 minutes until they’re golden. Just before it’s fully cooked. Press marshmallows and chocolate chips on the cookies and bake for a little bit more. The marshmallows will melt if left in the oven for too long. So be careful and watch them.

Cookies are nice with milk or coffee (for the adults). My kitchen smelled nice and we all loved what Klarion baked for us. They also had them for their lunch boxes the next day so they’re really happy!
