How to Make Salted Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

For these chocolate chunk cookies, I used two different types of chocolate – milk and dark chocolate. I used equal amounts of Hershey’s milk chocolate and Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate bars.

If you have a favorite milk and dark chocolate that you love, you can definitely use them in this recipe as well.

I gave them a rough chop into large pieces.

Then, I mixed together my cookie dough batter up to the point of including the chocolate to it. Since I wanted to keep the large pieces of chocolate chunks in the cookies, I decided to use a rubber scraper and fold the chocolate chunks into the cookie dough by hand instead of using the electric mixer to incorporate them.

I scooped my chocolate chunk cookie dough using my cookie scoop and placed onto a baking sheet that I’d lined with parchment paper. Then, I baked them until they were just golden brown, about 12 minutes. You want to take care not to over bake these cookies as they’ll be too crisp instead of tender and delicious!

Once the cookies are baked, remove them from the oven and give them a generous sprinkle of sea salt and then let them cool completely.

I hope you find them as irresistible as we do! They are my new favorites! 🙂

How to Freeze Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

There are a few ways to make these delicious cookies ahead of time to freeze them.

Freeze the Baked Cookies:

To freeze the baked cookies, bake the cookies as instructed and cool completely. Then freeze on the baking sheet. When the cookies have frozen solid, about 30 minutes. Store the cookies in an airtight, freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, allow the cookies to reach room temperature and then sprinkle with additional salt, if needed.

Freeze the Cookie Dough:

To freeze the cookie dough, scoop the cookie dough to form the cookie dough balls and then place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. You can squeeze as many on the baking sheet as possible, but leave a little room in between so that they freeze individually and not stuck to their neighbor.

Freeze completely on the baking sheet. Once the cookies have frozen solid, about 30 minutes, transfer the cookies to an airtight, freezer-safe container to freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, allow the cookies to thaw in the refrigerator and then bake as instructed.
