Ohhhh I’m a sucker for delicious cookies.  I mean does it really get any better than a cookie fresh from the oven with a glass of cold milk?!  I think not!  Though I love about any kind of cookie (my Chocolate Chip Cookies are hard to beat!), these are another one of my faves!

Why I love these cookies

  • I love chocolate, so its no surprise these fudgy chocolate cookies are right up my alley!
  • No chilling needed!!!  Though, you can certainly can if you want.
  • Deep chocolate flavor.  They’re deliciously chocolatey with cocoa powder, white chips, AND semi-sweet chips!
  • Easy, one-bowl recipe!  

Ingredients Needed

  • Butter – I use salted for this recipe.  If you use unsalted butter, simply add an additional 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the dough
  • White Sugar
  • Brown Sugar – Light or dark brown sugar will work great
  • Egg – I use large eggs when baking
  • Milk – Any milk or milk alternative will work great
  • Vanilla Extract 
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Chocolate Chips – I use a mixture of white chocolate chips AND semi-sweet chips.  However, you could use all white chips (or even white chocolate chunks), if you prefer.

How to Make

​These cookies are very simple to make!  I’ve got a few tips at the very end of the baking process to make them extra pretty, too!

Butter and sugars in a glass stand mixer bowl being mixed.

​In a large bowl, combine the softened butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  You can do this by hand, but I recommend using an electric mixer or stand mixer.

Then add the wet ingredients and stir to combine.

Next, you’ll add the dry ingredients and stir on low speed just until combined.  Then it’s time to stir in the chips!

Once the dough is mixed up, you can either choose to cover and refrigerate for up to 36 hours or bake right away.

When you’re ready to bake, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and scoop the dough onto the prepared sheets.

Bake one cookie sheet at a time in a preheated oven until they’re just set.  With the cookies being dark, it’s hard to tell if they’re done (since you can’t see if they’re “golden brown”).  One thing that helps me is to look more at the texture of the cookie.  If it’s glossy looking, it’s still super doughy and needs to bake longer.  If it’s looking a little more dry around the outside of the cookie and a little moist in the center, they’re likely done.  It takes some practice!  They will set up as they cool, as well, so keep that in mind.

Once the cookies are done, I like to do two things to make them look extra delicious!  First, I use a glass to make sure they’re in perfect circles (see photo above center).  Then, I take a few extra white chocolate chips and pretty them gently into the tops of the cookies.  

Let them cool for a while then move the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for Making the BEST Cookies

  • Use good quality white chips for the best flavor.  Ghirardelli is my favorite!
  • Don’t overmix the dough. Overmixing will make the cookies tough.
  • Chill the dough before baking if you want extra chewy cookies. 
  • Bake the cookies until they are just done. Overbaking will make the cookies dry.
  • Put the cookies in an airtight container once they’re cool so they don’t dry out.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I store the cookies?

You can keep these stored at room temperature in an airtight container or freeze them.

Can I freeze these cookies?

Yes!  These freeze really well.  I recommend freezing them in an airtight container or freezer bags for up to 3 months.

Can I use all white chocolate chips instead of a mixture?

Absolutely!  I like using half white and half semi-sweet so it’s not overly sweet.  However, some might enjoy all white chips better – it’s just a preference thing!

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips + extra for topping
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips* + extra for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Mix on low until combined then on high until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg, milk and vanilla and mix until well-combined, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula halfway through mixing.
  • Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt and mix until incorporated.
  • Add the white and semi-sweet chocolate chips and stir just until well-dispersed throughout.
  • **Optional** Cover the dough and refrigerate for up to 36 hours.
  • Use a cookie scoop to evenly scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets. You should have 15-16 cookies. Do NOT press the cookies down to flatten them at all.
  • Bake one sheet at a time for 9-11 minutes; do not overbake.
  • Press a few additional chocolate chips onto the cookies while they're still hot!
  • Let them cool completely on the pan. (The heat from the pan will continue to bake the cookies)


*You can opt to use all white chocolate chips, too!  I just like the combo so it’s not overly sweet!
