Double Chocolate Cookies are my new favorite cookies and chocoholics are going to go crazy for these! Made with cocoa powder and milk chocolate chips in under 20 minutes.
If you’re a fan of Monster Cookies, Deep Fried Oreos, and M&M Brownies you will love these double chocolate cookies!
Chocolate lovers are going to love this recipe because these are extremely chocolaty and rich. You should enjoy these with some coffee or a cold glass of milk. Some chocolate cookies taste like a vanilla cookie with a few chocolate chips tossed in. If I’m going to eat a chocolate cookie I want it to taste super chocolaty.
Are these cookies similar to chocolate chip cookies?
These cookies taste nothing like a chocolate chip cookie, they kind of remind me of brownies. You’ll need a sip of milk after every 2 bites. That’s not a bad thing.
Can I omit the chocolate chips and add M&M’s instead?
Absolutely. Because we’re using cocoa powder you don’t necessarily have to add the chocolate chips. Although, if you omit the chocolate chips and only use cocoa powder you may no longer call them double chocolate cookies. Since we’re only using one type of chocolate.
How Long Do I Bake These Cookies For?
You’ll notice that these cookies don’t spread out much and that’s perfectly fine. I baked these for 12 minutes, don’t bake these for more than 15 minutes.
How to Make Double Chocolate Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
