A giant double chocolate cookie that is easy to make and extra fudgy inside. Tastes like an oversized brownie!

Hi my name is Sally and I am in love with giant cookies. Nice to meet you.

If you have been reading SBA for awhile, you may already know about my affinity for large cookies.  I have three different recipes on my website that make 1 giant cookie.  They are perfect for sharing OR gobbling up all by yourself if you’re extra hungry.

You can make them in less than 20 minutes too! They are completely oversized and ridiculous in the best way possible. Here are a few I’ve made:

Each cookie recipe is suited to satisfy monster cookie cravings. With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I figured making 1 giant chocolate cookie to share with Kevin would be the perfect dessert. Today’s cookie is for all the chocolate lovers out there. All of you serious chocoholics. Get ready to totally swoon.

1 XXL Death by Chocolate Cookie - recipe for only 1 huge cookie

I’m going to be completely honest with you when I say that giant cookies taste better than regular cookies.  Kind of like how mini desserts taste better than regular-sized desserts. Who’s with me? Anyone? Anyone?

?

The recipe to make this giant chocolate cookie explosion is quite easy.  Would you expect anything less on my blog? I favor approachable recipes that taste completely sinful.  Who has time to slave in the kitchen all day? Not this girl.

A giant double chocolate cookie that is easy to make and extra fudgy inside. Tastes like an oversized brownie!

This recipe is like any chocolate cookie recipe, just downsized. A few tablespoons of this, a few tablespoons of that. All of your usual chocolate cookie suspects: flour, butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, white sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and egg. Oh and lots of chocolate chips.

You probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now. A note for the egg: all you have to do is crack an egg, beat it, and use 2 Tablespoons of the beaten egg.

The ingredients are mixed by hand. That’s right, no electric mixer needed today. It’s my kind of last minute dessert. Perfect for desperate and intense chocolate cravings. Which seem to happen often for most of us.

1 XXL Death by Chocolate Cookie - recipe for only 1 huge cookie

When all of your cookie ingredients are all mixed together, shape it into a big ball of dough on top of your cookie sheet.  I shaped my ball of dough with a spoon because the cookie dough is quite sticky. Dot the ball of dough with a few extra chocolate chips on top. You know, for looks.

The second time I made this cookie (yes, twice), I added little heart-shaped sprinkles.

(Always room for sprinkles.)

The cookie takes about 14-15 minutes in the oven. Watch it closely! You do not want it to burn, which is hard to tell since it is so dark already.  I always take my cookies out of the oven on the early side, which will ALWAYS give you a softer cookie. And boy, is this cookie soft!  The edges are chewy, the chocolate is gooey, and the decadence is off the charts.  The inside of the cookie tastes like a fudgy brownie. (!!!)

This is going to be the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert after our romantic Mexican dinner. Yes, Mexican.  Does it get any more romantic than guacamole and margaritas? Don’t answer that.

All of this chocolate is just bananas! Heck, just the SIZE of this cookie is bananas.

XXL Death by Chocolate Cookie

Taste the chocolate explosion.

Yield: makes 1 very large cookie

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons (25g) granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons (25g) light brown sugar (or dark brown)
  • 2 Tablespoons beaten egg (crack an egg, beat it, and use 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (32g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons (11g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (55g) dark chocolate chips + 1 Tablespoon, divided (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • sprinkles, optional

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix the softened butter and sugars together with a spoon or fork until creamed. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Fold in 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
  4. Place the dough in the center of the baking sheet and mold into a tall ball using a spoon (see picture above). Dot the top of the cookie with 1 Tablespoon of chocolate chips. Add sprinkles on top if desired. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or up to 16 minutes. The cookie will appear very soft, but will firm up as it cools. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.

*Want to make a whole batch of chocolate cookies? Use my easy Inside Out Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe and swap the white chocolate chips for semi-sweet, if desired.

*You may make four smaller cookies using this recipe. Just divide the dough into 4 smaller mounds on the cookie sheet rather than 1 large mound. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

    Perhaps you should make T-shirts that feature a bunch of cookies (with sprinkles) and the msg:

    When I was younger, they used to sell giant cookies that looked EXACTLY like this in the cafe of the gym (of all places) next to my school. They were the best cookies I’ve ever had! Sadly they don’t sell them now since they became health conscious. (They also used to make the best chips – or fries as you might call them.)

    I definitely want to give these a try! If you’ve replicated my childhood favourites I will forever be in your debt :)

    You’re on Ziplist now! That’s awesome! Did you get it installed by yourself? You’ll have to LMK how that went b/c it sure didn’t go easy for me back when I did it! I love the things you included in your recipe section, bolded words, etc. The person who helped me with mine didn’t know how to do much of that. I was the guinea pig.

    The cookie..LOVE how deep and dark it is. I was in the groc store LAST NIGHT with those dark chips in my hand! I put them back b/c I have tons of other chips to use first and I didn’t need another bag cluttering my pantry but after I thin out my stash, they’re next up!

    “giant cookies taste better than regular cookies” — they totally can. It’s a surface area thing. That huge circumference of chewy edges and then all that tender interior. I learned that when trying to make ‘smaller’ cookies to yield more from a batch, the cookies just don’t always taste as good. Bigger and less of them is preferred if possible!

      Ziplist is helping me out with it, thank goodness! A beginner doing all of that formatting sounds so scary, but I’m so glad it worked over time for you Averie. Just annoying in the process with all of the mistakes, lag time, etc. And yes, I am loving giant cookies these days. I made regular sized chocolate cookies (with a twist!) last weekend and they are huge. You are going to flip. You’ll love them!

The cookie cakes were always chocolate chip, any suggestions on how to make these chocolate chip instead of all chocolate?

    First of all, I think u are amazing. When I open your recipes I am always shocked, it’s like we share a brain and everything looks and tastes so good. I can’t get over it. Everyday I shove my iPad in my spouse’s face and say, “look at THIS one!! So delicious. I can’t believe it,” while shaking my head! Thank you so much!
    I have a question about today’s recipes. Can I double the recipe and bake two at once? I want to deliver some tomorrow and was wondering how that would work. Should I bake them longer if I bake 2 at once?
    Margaritas and Mexican are perfect for V Day!

      Hi Aisha! Thank you so much for the sweet comment. Everything you said means a lot to me! You may double the recipe and make two at a time, yes. You don’t need to bake longer if you bake two at once. Just keep an eye on them and if they look like they need more time, keep them in for an extra minute. The cookies will be very soft coming out of the oven. Thank you SO much for the congrats too!

    I’m with you! Giant cookies ARE better than regular-sized cookies! In college, my roommate worked at a cookie bakery just across from campus, and at the end of the day, she would bring home a few of the day-old giant cookies. My favorites were the chocolate/chocolate chip (like this one, OMG!) and the frosted pumpkin. It was rough being her roommate. :)

I tend to make small cookies for self-control reasons but larger cookies have that terrific textural contrast. I can imagine what this gigantic one would be like! Love the heart sprinkles too. I have the same and made chocolate rice crispies for my son’s bake sale at school with some of those sprinkles on top. Love hearts and sprinkles…and Valentine’s Day! : )

    I made this cookie last night, and there are no words to describe how delicious it turned out. It took a lot out of me NOT to eat the entire thing!!
    I did get a bit nervous b/c the dough was so creamy/sticky, so I added a bit more flour at the end. It still turned out excellent, but I am wondering if I really needed to add that? Any other tips on exactly how the texture should look before shaping into a ball to bake?

    Reply

    • Mary Ellenreplied on March 4th, 2013 at 10:03 am

      My dough was creamy/sticky, too. I didn’t add any more flour and it worked out great. For accuracy though, 1 cup of flour is 5 ounces, so I always find out the weight, so that each scoop is consistent. Same with cocoa.

      To avoid the sticky situation, next time I plan to put the dough in the fridge for a little bit. It will help the spread as well.

        Hi Mary Ellen! Yep, I mention how sticky the dough is in the post but it didn’t have an effect on the spreading as the cookie remained quite thick. Do you find your cookie spread too much? So sorry! Chilling the tiny bit of dough would help that, yes.

    Hello Sally! I just made this with mini chocolate chips because for some reason, I don’t have any regular sized ones! No matter, my only problem is waiting for this to cool. I’ve been experimenting, baking cookies in my convection oven. It works out pretty well. Great recipe! Thank you :)

      Hi Marie – a cookie the size, width, and thickness of 4 cookies should not burn at 6 minutes. I would check your oven or purchase an oven thermometer.

    Hi Sally! I LOOOOVE all of the giant cookies, this one is my absolute favorite times a kagillion (is that a word?). I have a question though… My husband says it is too bitter, like maybe too much baking soda. So I tried it with almost half of the baking soda and it came out the same – too bitter. I have no idea what’s happening. All my ingredients are fresh and of high quality (I am not new to baking by far). Any ideas?

      Hi Chantel! I’m not sure. There is plenty of sugar in this recipe. Perhaps add 1 more Tablespoon of each sugar the next time you make it (if you try it again).

    Last night I attempted to my this cookie. It turned out sooooooooo good (lookwise). I did not have baking soda so I put baking powder instead (1.5 teaspoons). The taste turned out sooooo salty, it was disappointing because it just looked like it would taste Yummy. Of course it is not the recipe’s fault since I did not follow exactly.

    I will try again once I get a hold of some baking soda!

I was thinking I could make one of each of your XXL large cookies- the M&M one, the chocolate one, the snickerdoodle one, and the sugar cookie one! Do you know if they ship well in the summer? Or do you think they might melt or fall apart? Thanks so much!

        Hey Rachel! I think they would be fine to ship as long as the shipping time isn’t a week or something. I would make each cookie, let them cool completely, then put two together (bottoms together) like you’re making a cookie sandwich. Wrap them up very tightly in saran wrap or aluminum foil. Chill in the refrigerator and then ship. Putting them together back to back and wrapping tightly will help prevent breakage.

    This thing is EFFING AMAZING! I’ve made two of these humdingers recently and they get scarfed down in nanoseconds. (I seriously do not understand people who wait for baked good to ‘cool’ – psychotics, obviously.)

    Anyhoot, for anyone perusing these comments, this is one chocolate-on-chocolate cookie that is SERIOUSLY moist and delicious. If you are on the fence about double chocolate cookies, you MUST try this one. It’ll change your life! :o)

    I’m about to make this cookie as a surprise treat for my sister! I’m wondering, though, if you could add the metric measurements to this recipe as well for added convenience and accuracy? Thanks a lot! I’m 100% positive that the cookie will be gorgeous!

    I don’t know what happened to mine… but it spread out way too much and was way too thin and very soft in the middle and crispy on the edges. I don’t know what I did wrong and I’ve tried it twice now! I made it with margarine instead the first time so I thought maybe that was it, but I used butter this time and still the same result! Did I measure the butter wrong and use too much or something!?

      Sounds like the cookie spread a little too much? Try adding 1 extra Tablespoon of flour. And yes, please use butter not margarine. Thanks Kat!

    Our cookie tasted great but looked horrendous- about halfway through cooking our greaceproof paper set fire and burnt all the paper around the cookie. Although the recipe is great, it might be worth mentioning that greaceproof paper should not hang off the tray or use baking sheets which we had to swp to because it set alight.

      I apologize, I have always assumed that paper hanging off baking sheets was a known fire hazard. I’ll keep that in mind now. Thanks Rebecca!!

    Death By Chocolate is a HIT, and I use flax seed as an egg replacer, per my son’s food allergies. I might need to use only 1tbsp of the mixture for a thicker cookie, though. I tried making a regular chocolate chip cookie by replacing the cocoa powder with 2tbsp flour, but it bakes much softer… delicious… very delicious… just harder to handle, although the edge looks very done. I also s
    needed to scale the salt back to a pinch. great, fun, easy recipe!

    Amazing! I just made two of these by doubling the recipe…. I had a huge chocolate craving before I found this recipe. Totally satisfied now and I could only eat a small 1/8 of one biscuit. Thanks. Will definitely check out the rest of your recipes!

    I made this cookie tonight and it did not disappoint. The cookie was moist and – naturally – so chocolatey. It is by far the most delicious cookie I’ve ever tasted. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!

    I ran a marathon on Saturday and all I could think of at mile 22 was a chocolate cookie with white chocolate chips. I almost bought a cookie at the grocery store (ish) but then I found this. This cookie was worth all 26.2 miles of pain!

    Mine turned out flat, spread out too much, and cake like :( but I think I know what I did wrong. I only had refrigerated butter and was too excited to wait for it to come to room temp so I nuked it for a few seconds. I also mixed the ingredients in a kitchenaid instead of by hand so I probably mixed too much air in, which made them cakey. I’ll try again and maybe add 1 more Tbls of flour.

      Never microwave butter when it needs to be at room temperature. Hope you try again. Thanks!

    I recently stumbled upon this recipe thanks to pinterest, and it surely didn’t disappoint. I unfortunately had no unsalted butter so i just used salted butter and didnt use any extra salt, i was afraid it would hurt the recipe but it surely didnt! I was a bit apprehensive about the cookie but the second i took the first bite, i felt as if i was tasting heaven! I WILL be making this again, thank you so much for publishing such an incredible recipe!
    p.s. the sheer size of the cookie made me fall in love, giant cookies just ARE so much better

    Stumbled upon this recipe from Pinterest and I’ve since become obsessed with making XXL cookies too! My hubs and I have tried all of your recipes and we love them all!!!

    Sharing a big cookie is way more fun than having “normal” cookies, so I’m thinking about mixing up a few batches of each one and freezing the dough to have on hand whenever a cookie craving strikes. Have you tried freezing the dough and then baking the cookies later? Will I need to adjust the baking time/temp?

    Thanks for sharing your addiction to big cookies with the world :-)

      Hi Jennifer! Yep, I’ve frozen this cookie dough before. Do not thaw, just add another minute or two to the bake time. Same oven temp.

    Awesome!
    I’ve wanted to make this for a while and today decided to do it. Delicious…like a Brownie and Cookie combined.

    I thought I’d make two cookies, and the one egg I had made the double batch. This paired nicely with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

    I followed this recipe exactly without omitting anything but the cookie came out bitter and tasted strongly of baking soda, do you have any idea what I might have done wrong?

    Just one question, I noticed you had advised a reader not to use baking powder instead of baking soda. Can you tell me why this is?

    Sally you’re a goddess! This is the second time I’ve made this giant cookie. This time I’m not sharing it! It’s so fudgey and chewy and WONDERFUL. I can’t say enough good things about all the recipes you post. Every one turns out perfectly, and every one is a home run. Thank you!!
