With that said, check out these baking tips for the best-ever chocolate chip cookies!!

Secrets For The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!!


Everyone with experience cultivating the best chocolate chip cookie recipes agrees that chocolate is the most important part of chocolate chip cookies. The chocolate used in chocolate chip cookie recipes affects the taste and texture of cookies, as well as how cookies look when they come out of the oven.

So what are the best types of chocolate to use for chocolate chip cookies?

According to baking experts, semi-chocolate chips or dark chocolate are the best chocolate to use in chocolate chip cookie recipes

And the consensus seems to be that the best chocolate for chocolate chip cookies is dark chocolate with at least 60% cocoa solids. 

The bitterness of dark chocolate balances out perfectly with the sweetness of the cookie dough, creating the best-ever chocolate chip cookies.

And the best chocolate for chocolate chunk cookies? Definitely use semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chunks. With a combination of chocolate, you get the best-tasting perfect chocolate chip cookies ever!! 

Also, try to use high-quality dark chocolate like Ghirardelli, and chop the chocolate bar into chunks.

Butter: Salted or Unsalted ??

Who knew this was a thing when making chocolate chip cookies? 

Anyway, I will say the overwhelming opinion on using salted or unsalted butter in chocolate chip cookie recipes is......

Unsalted Butter. 

Specifically a good quality cream unsalted butter. But I have to be fair and say that there were also recommendations for salted butter. So in the end, maybe just go with what you have on hand already?? 


Always try to use quality vanilla, no skimping on it if you want the best-tasting chocolate chip cookies ever!!

Measure Flour Carefully

I came across this particular baking tip a lot. It is very important to weigh flour perfectly to help make sure cookies turn out perfect after baking. Too much flour will give you dry cookies.

If you have a food scale, then it is worth the extra step to weigh the flour. And if you don't have a food scale, then carefully spoon the flour into a measuring cup and level it off with a flat edge.

Lastly, Don't Over Bake!

When you think it is almost time to take the cookies out of the oven, but you want to give them a couple more minutes, that is precisely when you should take them out of the oven.

The cookies should be golden brown around the edges, and the middle of the cookies should look pale and undercooked still. They should also be a bit puffed up, not flat, when you take them out.

Cookies will continue baking a bit after you take them out, and the centers will get nice and gooey. As the cookies cool off, they will also flatten out.

And best of all, this chocolate chip cookie recipe uses a combination of milk chocolate chunks and semi-sweet chocolate chunks.
