Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chewy chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy, with a slight crunch on the outside and made with TWO kinds of chocolate. These are made with melted butter, so there's no waiting for cold butter to soften to room temperature!

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, beat together butter, both sugars, egg, and vanilla.
  • Beat in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.
  • Beat in chocolate chips and chunks.
  • Optional: chill dough for 30-60 minutes. This will stop the dough from spreading out as much and may result in a thicker cookie.
  • Scoop 12 cookie dough balls* onto the prepared baking sheet using a small cookie scoop. 
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the tops are lightly golden.
  • Cool slightly before removing them from the baking sheet and placing them on a cooling rack.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Take 5 seconds to rate this recipe below. We greatly appreciate it!



*Place the remaining dough in the fridge while the first batch of cookies is baking. This keeps the dough from spreading too much on the second batch.
