My baking buddy, Danielle, posted a picture of these Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies on facebook. They were chock full of gooey chocolate chunks. In a mere instant, I knew I had to try the recipe.

They came from Top Chef Just Dessert’s Eric who made them in the elimination challenge.  The chocoholics residing at my house gave these cookies high praise. The extra brown sugar and egg yolks made a chewy, caramelly base for loads of chocolate.

Fast Forward…

I’m now updating this post nearly 7 years later. I was heading to Iowa to my dearest friend’s father’s funeral. He was 92 years old and had lived life to the fullest. He cherished his family most of all. I spent as much time at their house as mine over the 12+ years I lived right around the corner.

To celebrate his memory, I brought a tin of these amazing, chocolate laden cookies to share the night after the funeral. You know they’re special when you hear “Where did these cookies come from?” and “Did somebody make these cookies?” I promise you’ll love these ultra, thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies! Rest in Peace, Rog. You are missed.

  1. John reads a gazillion woodworking blogs, but only two about food: David Lebovitz and That Skinny Chick. When asked about checking TSC every evening after he comes home from work, he replied, “I like to see what I’m “not” getting to eat tonight.” I can’t wait to see what he thinks about these new chocolate chip cookies.

  2. That is great, Susan!!! I’m very flattered. I probably need to pare down the gazillion food blogs I read, but don’t think I’ll take up any woodworking ones in exchange 😉

    My gang was so delighted to see something, anything with chocolate, that they couldn’t be bothered with any sort of analysis…but I knew they were good when Nick wanted to swap the one I handed him for a bigger one (they were ALL made with a quarter cup of dough!).

  3. They look great Lizzie…I was thinking of trying this recipe. Glad it got such a good review!

  4. Thanks for stopping by, Linda…hope you try them!

  5. Great size for a cookie, won’t feel guilty eating just one. This is a must try as DH is a chocoholic. Thanks for sharing another great recipe.
    I can still see Lambeau…:-)

  6. Thank you, everyone!!! The last slice of Basque is lonely in the refrigerator as these cookies have taken precedent as far as desserts go! My family LOVES any big chocolate chip cookie (as long as I don’t sneak in nuts or oatmeal)…and these were a hit!

  7. I can’t remember the last time I had a chocolate chip cookie, but those look fantastic ~ Alexandra
