Hello Everyone! I was craving for something chocolate and I had a lot of white chip morsels left over when I was making multiple batches of red velvet cookies for my brother and his friends. So I decided to make scrumptious chewy chocolate cookies, which make for a perfect snack with a nice glass of milk! I lowered the sugar in this recipe, because I don’t like extremely sweet things & the white chocolate chip morsels will add an extra pinch of sweetness in each bite too. I hope you like this recipe!

Yields: ~15 cookies
1 1/8 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened unsalted butter
~ 1/4 cup granulated sugar
~ 1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp milk
1 large egg
~ 1/2 – 1 cup white chocolate chip morsels
*To measure the ingredients that are 1/8 cup or 1/8 tsp, just fill the 1/4 measuring cup/ spoon and use a knife to remove half of it.*
Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Tip – Why sift your dry ingredients?: When you sift your dry ingredients, it aerates and removes the lumps from the dry ingredients.
In a large bowl, place a large fine mesh strainer over the bowl. Place your flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in your fine mesh strainer. Sift all your dry ingredients, whisk to combine, and set the bowl aside.
Tip – How to sift using a fine mesh strainer: Place the strainer over a large bowl. Place your ingredients in the mesh strainer, and gently tap the strainer against the flat side of your hand. Then, sifted ingredients should land in the bowl.
In a large bowl add the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Using a mixer, cream the sugar and butter until it is a smooth consistency. At this point, you can add your egg & milk, and beat until combined.
Add your dry ingredients in batches to your wet ingredients. The cookie dough is a little tough, but give it some TLC and it’ll be worth it in the end. Now I switched over to a rubber spatula to make mixing the white chip morsels easier.
Add the white chocolate chip morsels and fold it into the cookie dough. You can add however many you want, this is your cookie batter! 🙂
Scoop out 1 tbsp pieces of dough. Roll them into a ball between your palms and place on the lined cookie sheet.
Bake for ~10-15 minutes or until it is set (when you put a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean). Cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
I hope you all enjoyed this simple and quick chewy chocolate cookie recipe! Feel free to comment or like below, I would love to explore more of your blogs 🙂
