What a quiet weekend!  My son, Matthew, is away for the weekend and my daughter, Liana, has been hiding in the living room, engrossed in a 1000-piece puzzle that she can’t seem to tear herself away from. The house feels so empty and it is extremely quiet.  Usually Matt and his buddies are in and out of the house, swimming in the pool, shooting hoops out front, and playing the guitar out by the fire pit. I often wish I had a little time to myself and a little peace and quiet and now that I have it I’m going out of my mind and missing him like crazy and he’s only been gone since yesterday afternoon.  Be careful what you wish for you might just get it.

I was going stir crazy with nothing to do so I thought to myself why not get in the kitchen and bake some of Matt’s favourite treats.  Matt loves cookies, especially the kind you can dunk in a huge glass of cold milk.

He will be very happy to come home to Double-Chocolate Chunk Cookies.  He missed the best part of baking cookies, eating them straight from the oven when they are still warm and the chocolate is oozing when you split them in half.

I’d forgotten how thick the cookie batter is, I got an upper body work out (definitely need it with all the goodies I’ve been eating lately) folding in the chocolate chunks. The cookies are over-sized and they spread when baked, be sure to leave at least 2 inches between them.  I slightly under cook these cookies to ensure I get that perfect chewy texture.

Matt was a little disappointed that he wasn’t able to indulge in the Hot Chocolate Fondants I made the other day but the combination of dark cocoa and milk chocolate chunks in these cookies will surely satisfy his chocolate craving.

Time to indulge in a tall glass of cold milk and one, no, maybe two warm, double chocolate chunk cookies.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    These look so good. I love chocolate based cookies with milk chocolate in them. I’ll have to make these next time I have a chocolate craving!

    Oh, and I love the picture of the all the cookies stacked with the white paper in between them. Beautiful!

    Hi Sarah

    Thank you so much!

    These happen to be one of my favourite cookies, I really lucked out this time because my brother in law just returned from a trip to Europe and my sister gave me some Swiss Milk Chocolate he purchased while traveling. Th cookies are so much better with good-quality milk chocolate.

    Now this looks like a recipe I could sink my teeth into. Of course, I would have to adapt it just a tad to make it vegan, but that’s do-able. Looks so yummy. You have been a baking queen lately! I can’t wait to see what’s next…

    These cookies look really good! I like how thin they are. I don’t really like thick chunky cookies.

    Thank you

  17. Grace Says:

    What ingredients are you having difficulty finding? Are any available to be ordered online? I know if you do a little searching on the internet there are sites that provide ingredient substitutions. Maybe you could try there first.

  18. Denise Says:

    Hey dear could you give me the measurements of the ingredients in grams and stuff? How many grams is in a cup needed for the flour? :)

  19. Grace Says:

    Hi Denise, I have updated the recipe with measurements in grams. Enjoy the cookies! I have another sinful chocolate cookie coming out in the next day.

  20. sarah Says:

    Is it possible to substitute baking soda with baking powder?

  21. Grace Says:

    Sarah you could substitute baking soda with baking powder but it could affect the taste. If you must, you would triple the amount of baking powder for baking soda – i.e. if the recipe calls for 1 tsp baking soda you will need to substitute with 3 tsps of baking powder.
