What is double chocolate chip cookie? Well, double chocolate chip cookies provide more chocolate flavor in choco chip cookies with the addition of cocoa powder along with extra chocolate chips.
Where do we add these extra choco chips?
Initially, while preparing the cookie dough chocolate chips are added and later in raw cookie we add some more choco chips to add extra chocolate flavor.
That’s the reason these are the most popular cookies among kids. You can bake them as return gifts during birthday parties and of course during Christmas celebrations🌲🎄.
One more interesting thing I want to share here – have you ever tasted warm cookies 🍪🍪? Out of the world!!
When I was baking these cookies I had finished my lunch. Generally, I do not eat anything after lunch for minimum 3 hours. But when these cookies were cooling down, I couldn’t stop myself from tasting a tiny bit. I broke 1/4th piece of a cookie while it was still warm. It tasted so wonderful that I gobbled the rest of the pieces and came out of the kitchen with one more cookie in my hand. For second cookie I convinced myself that after some time these cookies will cool down completely and this heavenly taste will not be revived…Lol 😂 😂 😂
How much we fool ourselves but that’s the magic of warm double chocolate chip cookies!!!

Recipe credit: https://www.tarladalal.com, though I have done a few changes in the original recipe.
Maida (all purpose flour)
1 cup minus 1 tbsp
Powdered sugar 6 tbsp
Cocoa powder 2 tbsp
Baking soda 1 tsp
Baking powder 1/2 tsp
Choco chips 3 tbsp
Butter 5 tbsp (75.8 gm)
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Milk 1-2 tsp (optional)
Extra chocolate chips
Take butter (should be firm but not cold) in a bowl and cream it.
Add vanilla extract/essence and powdered sugar in creamed butter and mix it nicely.
Add rest of the ingredients, except milk and chocolate chips.
When everything is mixed, add 3 tbsp chocolate chips and if you find it difficult to bind the dough, add milk carefully – 1 tsp at a time.
Divide the dough in same size balls.
Roll these balls to make them smooth and press them from one side in a bowl of chocolate chips.
Arrange these cookies by giving some gap in the ready baking tray. Bake them for 20/25 minutes at 175 degrees.
Cookies will be slightly firm but delicate and soft while shifting them to cooling rack after baking.
Don’t worry, carefully shift them to cooling rack. Once cookies cool down completely, they will become firm.
But even after cooling down if you still feel that cookies are soft and you really like crunch in your cookies, then just bake them one more time at 150 degrees for 15 minutes and you will get crispy cookies!!!
