These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are quick and easy to make and are filled with semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, cashews, and pecans!
Today’s post is sponsored by Diamond of California. We used their pecans and cashews in these Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and I’m officially going nuts for them. 😉
Another day in December, another holiday treat. This time, in the form of cookies. Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cashews and Pecans to be exact.
First things first.
Today we’re working with Diamond of California where they’ve been offering high quality and great tasting nuts for over 100 years! Seriously. 100 years.
Soooo, Diamond of California reached out to us and asked Trevor and I to create a cookie recipe (& video 👇) using their premium quality nuts. My mind instantly when to chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate.
Wanna hear the fun part? After we created a cookie recipe, we got to ship our cookies to three other bloggers for a holiday cookie swap!
How amazing is that?
Our contribution? These ahhh-mazing Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, of course. 🙂 🍪
If you watched the video above 👆, then you know just how easy these double chocolate chip cookies are to make.
What’s ever better, however, is how great they taste!
The base is a simple chocolate cookie dough. Today, we’re using flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch – to keep them soft and fluffy – baking soda and salt. We’re also using melted butter – no waiting for the butter to soften to room temperature #winning – brown AND granulated sugar, an egg, and vanilla.
Once the base of the cookie has mixed together, comes the best part…
The MIX-INS :
White chocolate chips. ✔️
Semi-sweet chocolate chips. ✔️
The combination of TWO types of chocolate and TWO types of nuts is just outta this world, mind blowing, craaaazy good.
Once the mix ins have been, you know, mixed in, we’re gonna bake ’em up.
Yep! That’s right. No chilling required.
The result? A soft, fluffy, chocolate-y, slightly salty, crunchy, creamy double chocolate chip cookie. ♡
I hope the other bloggers loved these cookies as much as Trevor did, who claimed these to be the “best cookies ever”! 😉
I know I had a blast taste testing the other blogger’s cookies. We got to try…
Oatmeal Pecan Cookies from Chelsea’s Messy Apron
Dark Chocolate Shortbread Cookies with Pistachios from The Blonde Chef
Pistachio Wreath Cookies from Chez Catey Lou!
