    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

    • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (melted)
    • 1 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • Mix until the mixture is thoroughly blended.

    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk (room temperature)

4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

    • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

Secrets To The Best Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Chill the Dough: Don’t skip this step! Chilled dough prevents cookies from spreading too much during baking, resulting in a thicker, chewier texture.
  2. Quality Ingredients: Use real butter, high-quality chocolate, and fresh eggs. These ingredients make a difference!
  3. Don’t Overmix: Mix the dough just until combined. Overmixing can lead to tough cookies.

Remember, these cookies are meant to be enjoyed—whether you’re sharing them with friends or indulging in a late-night treat. Happy baking! 🍪❤️
