How to Make Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

My boys just love chocolate chip cookies and this recipe is very simple to make. They are also great to bring to a birthday party or any family gathering.

Let’s get started!

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
1cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups yellow cake mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4cup sour cream
3 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Melt butter and unsweetened chocolate together.
  3. Sift cake mix, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
  4. In a large bowl, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  5. Stir the chocolate mixture into the eggs.
  6. Stir in the sifted ingredients with sour cream.
  7. Mix in chocolate chips.
  8. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls cookie sheets.
  9. Bake for until edges are starting to turn dark brown.

Enjoy these wonderful cookies at any occasion. They disappear very quickly at my home and family events. You might have noticed my secret ingredient. It is the boxed yellow cake mix. Cake flour gives the cookie a little more body than the regular unbleached flour. You may use any of your favorite brands.

If you are making smaller cookies don’t forget that the baking time goes down. Many ovens produce heat from the bottom of the oven, so as not to burn the bottom of the cookies many times I will double pan the cookies before I bake them.

Baking is similar to a gigantic chemistry experiment! The best way to get the experiment right is to keep experimenting. Once you have found the best combinations of ingredients and procedures, stick with it.

Enjoy!
