About the Chocolate Chunks!
Use good quality chocolate. Buy premium chocolate bars and cut them up to the size preferred in your cookies is a great option! There are also chocolate chunks packaged already that you can use like Enjoy Life Chocolate Mega Chunks or Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunk Baking.
Mix dark chocolate with milk chocolate or white chocolate with dark chocolate or milk chocolate with semi-sweet chocolate...you decide what combinations you want if you like a variety. Of course, you can always just go with semi-sweet chocolate which is the standard favorite for chocolate chip cookies. I don't think anyone will object! 🙂
The star of the show is the chocolate of course! Even though we are in chocolate chunk overload mode, remember there is a chewy cookie somewhere in there, so you want to make sure you don't go completely bonkers when adding chocolate chunks to the cookies. The chocolate chunks are larger in size than chocolate chips, so keep that in mind when adding your chocolate to your cookie dough. So we can use less chocolate chunks and still cover the chocolate aspect to getting super chocolatey cookies!
As far as the chewy concept of these cookies, this recipe calls out 2 egg yolks and 1 whole egg. The yolks contain most of the fats in the egg, so the extra fat contributes extra softness and richness, and extra moisture. So when we put it all together, we get chewy chocolate chunk cookies we crave!
There are so many chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, but if you still haven’t found the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe or just want to change things up a bit, this is the recipe for you. Enjoy!
