Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

An easy, no-mixer required recipe for super chewy, soft, and perfect chocolate chip cookies.

Please note that this post has a lot of text. The reason is because I need to explain to you exactly what makes these cookies so chewy, soft, and thick in order for your cookies to be a success. If you do not like reading the text, you may simply skip down to the recipe.

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies - learn the secrets to making them extra soft and thick!

Wednesday is National Chocolate Chip Day, so I made you a new chocolate chip cookie recipe to celebrate! And I’ve made them 5 times in the past two weeks. No lie.

I had to test them over and over and over again to make sure they were as good as the first time before sharing with you.  You only get the best of the best.  I made 2 batches with chocolate chunks and the rest with other goodies inside. And yes, each batch is perfection.

There are hundreds of chocolate chip cookie recipes out there.  Everyone has their favorite! But today’s recipe stands out in my mind. They are the chewiest of chewy.  The softest of soft.  Thick, underbaked, buttery dough, and exploding with chocolate. Warning: this chocolate chip cookie requires a tall glass of milk. ;)

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies - learn the secrets to making them extra soft and thick!

Don’t get me wrong.  I still have a huge space in my heart (and tastebuds) for my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.  It’s one of the most popular recipes on my website. You all love them!

Today’s recipe is similar, but I increased the chewy factor. 

The cookie dough is made from standard cookie dough ingredients.  Flour, leavener, salt, sugar, butter, egg, & vanilla.  It’s the ratios of those ingredients that make this recipe stand out against the rest.  2.25 cups of flour is mixed with 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and my favorite: cornstarch!  I used 1.5 teaspoons of cornstarch in this recipe.  It gives the cookies that ultra soft-baked consistency we all know and love.  Plus, it makes the cookies super thick.

You’ll use melted butter in this cookie recipe. Most of the cookies on my website call for creaming softened butter with the sugars.  My new chocolate chip cookie recipe requires melted butter.  It increases the chewy factor in the baked cookie. Melted butter can make your baked cookie greasy, so I made sure there was enough flour to avoid that from happening.  Since you are using melted butter, you don’t need a mixer for this cookie recipe! Ironically, I’m giving away a free KitchenAid Stand Mixer right now.

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies - learn the secrets to making them extra soft and thick!

To the melted butter, add 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar.  Extra brown sugar increases the moist-factor, softness, and chewiness in the final cookie.  The white sugar induces slight spreading so your cookies don’t remain balls of dough in the oven.  A little bit of spread is a good thing.  Too much spreading? No thank you. Thankfully, these cookies remain nice and thick in the oven because of the cornstarch, flour, and baking soda.

Another way to ensure these cookies are extra chewy is to add an extra egg yolk.  The extra egg yolk adds richness, soft tenderness, and binds the dough. So you will need 1 egg and 1 egg yolk.  You can freeze the extra egg white in a ziplock baggie for up to 1 month or use it to make my Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes.

Finally, add 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and your chocolate chunks.  I used a combination of Nestle Chocolate Chunks and Mini Chocolate Chips. You can use standard size semi-sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips if you prefer.

The dough will be soft and the chocolate chunks may not stick because of the melted butter. Just keep stirring it. Next step is to chill the dough. I can’t stress this step enough.  Chilling the dough is mandatory for most of my cookie recipes. It allows the ingredients to settle together after the mixing stage. But most importantly: cold dough results in thicker cookies. This cookie dough will spread in the oven if you bake it at room temperature. Cover the cookie dough and chill the dough for at least 2 hours, and even up to 3 days. I chilled this dough for 1 day. After chilling, let your cookie dough sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before rolling into balls.

After chilling, sometimes I roll the cookie dough into balls and freeze them in a large zipped-top bag. Then I bake them in their frozen state – keeping them in the oven for an extra minute.  This way you can have just one of two cookies whenever you want! 

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies - learn the secrets to making them extra soft and thick!

These cookies are huge.  About 3 Tablespoons of dough is rolled to make one cookie.  The batch only makes about 16 cookies since you will be rolling them so large.  It was the perfect amount to share with Kevin’s family for Mother’s Day and have extras for our cookie jar. Feel free to make the cookies smaller (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) instead. If you do that, be sure to reduce the baking time to 8 minutes. For me? Well, sometimes you just gotta have a monster size chocolate cookie.

When you remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator after chilling, the dough will be slightly crumbly.  The warmth of your hands rolling it will make it stay intact. Roll the cookie dough balls taller, rather than wide as I discussed and showed here.  This little tried-and-true trick will result in thicker cookies. I do it for every single cookie I bake.

The large cookies take 11-12 minutes in the oven.  Try not to overbake them.  The cookies will appear very soft and undone.  However, they will continue to bake for about 10 minutes as you allow them to cool on the cookie sheet.  The cookies you see here were baked for 11 minutes.

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies - learn the secrets to making them extra soft and thick!

In short, here are my secrets to thick, soft, & chewy Cookies: 

Underbaked cookies are the secret to softness.  Using cornstarch in the dough is another secret to softness, as well as the secret to thickness.  Using more brown sugar than white sugar results in a moister, softer cookie.  Adding an extra egg yolk increases chewiness. Rolling the cookie dough balls to be taller than wider increases thickness.  Using melted butter (and slightly more flour) increases chewiness. Chilling the dough results in a thicker cookie.

I love these super chewy cookies as much as my original chocolate chip cookie recipe. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Soft-baked and ultra chewy. No mixer required. Use any of your favorite add-ins!

Yield: 16 large cookies


  • 2 and 1/4 cups (280 grams) all-purpose flour, measured correctly
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup (135 grams) light brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (180 grams) chocolate chips or chocolate chunks


Click here for step-by-step photos and careful explanations of all of these steps.

Toss together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a medium size bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the egg, then the egg yolk. Finally, whisk in the vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft, yet thick. Fold in the chocolate chips. They may not stick to the dough because of the melted butter, but do your best to have them evenly dispersed among the dough. Cover the dough and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

Roll the dough into balls, about 3 Tablespoons of dough each. The dough will be crumbly, but the warmth of your hands will allow the balls to stay intact. Roll the cookie dough balls to be taller rather than wide, to ensure the cookies will bake up to be thick. See this post for more clarity and a photo. Put 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet. Press a few more chocolate chips/chunks on top of the dough balls for looks, if desired. Bake the cookies for 11-12 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked. They will continue to bake on the cookie sheet. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cookies stay soft and fresh for 7 whole days at room temperature. Cookies may be frozen up to 3 months. Rolled cookie dough may be frozen up to three months and baked in their frozen state for 12 minutes.

*Room temperature egg + egg yolk are preferred for even disbursement.  Typically, if a recipe calls for room temperature or melted butter, it's a good idea to use room temperature eggs as well.  To bring eggs to room temperature quickly, simply place the whole eggs into a glass of warm water for 5 minutes.  

*What to do with the extra egg white? Make these or these.

    Hey! Just wanted to say- I love this recipe!!! This is probably the 10th time I’m making them and I just wanted to ask- Do you think it would work if I formed the cookies before chilling? and than put them right in the oven? Or should i keep chilling first and than forming them? I also make them as “snickerdoodles”; leave choc. chips out and just coat them in cinnamon/sugar.. yumm

    Alyssaposted November 25, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    Help! Super flat! What went wrong?! I like to think I’m a decent baker and have made many successful batches of cookies over the years. Followed the directions for these, let them chill more than 3 hrs and then put them straight into the oven after forming the balls. This is always my problem with choc chippers! Even if I get a recipe to work once, the next time it fails miserably. And I honestly am a good baker…I swear!! :)

    Hi Sally! I was wondering if I can make these with browned butter instead of just plain melted butter. Do you think it would alter the texture? I’ve been making these and they definitely have been a hit to my family and friends. I was just curious cause I know that browned butter can definitely give it more of a deeper and richer flavor(not that it needed it in the first place) but I’m kind of scared if it would alter the soft and chewy texture of it.


    • Sallyreplied on November 28th, 2014 at 11:37 am

      you can, yes, and the flavor is outstanding! but I find them to be a little more crumbly using brown butter, for some reason! i’m working on a way to incorporate brown butter but still having the same texture.


      • Martinreplied on November 30th, 2014 at 1:02 pm

        Hello again Sally! I still haven’t tried it but I did a little bit of research on cookies. (I’m so addicted to finding more innovative ways of taking the flavor up a notch but with the same texture and feel as your original recipe) Anyway here’s what I found:

        On this website the author says that..

        “Since the butter can’t get hot enough to brown milk proteins until all of its water content has evaporated, brown butter adds no moisture to dough. ”

        Maybe adding back the water (in form of milk; heavy cream; half and half or just plain water) can reduce the crumbliness you were talking about! :) have you tried doing that or does it alter the texture much more? I’d love to experiment but I’m currently in college and Christmas break starts in two weeks time. :( so I can’t until then!

    BANG! First time out the gate… and they’re just perfect. Thanks for sharing…..I have my own cookie recipe that I’ve honed for three years to get them where they are, and they are a unique thing unto themselves; but I love trying new recipes and yours are totally different and a welcome change. The holiday season has bestowed on us those Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chips filled with peanut butter, so those are what I used with this batch. Check them out!

    In the past two days I’ve made both your butter pecan cookies and these chocolate chunk cookies. Each needed to be baked significantly longer than the recipe instructed – nearly 10 minutes! Any idea why? I used a light metal commercial quality cookie sheet covered with parchment (no silpat). They both taste great btw! With the additional baking time they were not over baked at all – but it kind of boggles my mind! I mostly work with cakes and never have issues with cooking times.

    I’ve baked three batches of these cookies this week and so far, I absolutely love this recipe! I like chewy cookies, so this works extremely well for me! One thing I’ve learned, is to follow the exact directions. While making my second batch, I didn’t leave the cookie dough out for 10 minutes, after being refrigerated, so my cookies ended up being too thick and a little dryer…lesson learned! My three favorite things about this recipe are 1.) It’s moist, 2.) Being able to refrigerate the cookie dough, for up the three days and 3.) Chocolate Chunk. :-)

    Eliaposted December 20, 2014 at 1:30 pm

    Hi Sally,

    I’ve made these cookies tonnes of times before and they always worked out perfectly. Today however, the spread loads and many didn’t bake through. They seem very greasy so I’m thinking that maybe I didn’t put the correct amount of flour in (my 6-year old brother did most of the measuring, so I wouldn’t be surprised). It might also be my parents’ oven (which I’m not used to). I still have some of the dough in the freezer and was thinking of putting some extra flour in before baking this batch. Or should I maybe just bake them for longer? What do you think?

    I am very excited that this recipe doesn’t require a mixer! I’m without a hand mixer right now & these will be perfect to make with my daughter to leave out for Santa in a few days. Would it be okay to add sprinkles, like in your Cake Batter Cookie recipe? I was wanting to make them a little more festive for the Christmas holiday.

    Hi Sally,

    The cookies tasted amazing!! However, after coming out of the oven they were still in somewhat of a ball shape. They didn’t flatten into normal cookie shapes. I’m pretty sure that I followed your directions & ingredients to a tee.

    Any thoughts on what may have happened? Happy holidays!

After pulling them from the oven I was skeptical at first they were so soft as if uncooked but after cooLing them they were perfect. I finally tried some and they were chewy as she said. It’s a recipe I would definitely use again. So great I found this recipe. Really good.

    Shereenposted December 29, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    Made today but they spread far too much! every cookie stuck together caused a big rectangle cookie. Were in the oven at the right temperature for 12 minutes, left for 10 minutes in the oven to ‘bake’ on the tray but afterwards they were very soft and very raw.. not the way yours were :( yet some at the back were very brown?.. had to bake again for TEN more minutes. Not sure why, I had the dough chilled 4 hours in fridge and did 325F, also preheated the same. My family got so angry at me, little brother upset as he expected cookies like yours.

    I even used the ‘tall’ method you used to shape the dough and the cookies were thin not thick. I have no room for even the smallest silicone mat in my small oven so I used parchment paper to fill my tray. How can I prevent this mess next time? I measured everything correctly, used the correct ingredients 100% and did all the steps you did making sure cookie dough wasn’t too big as you gave me an idea, it was so horrible and I wanted it to go well very much..

    Hello Sally! When I first took these cookies out of the oven, they looked thick, puffy and beautiful. But within a few seconds they sunk flat and spread out. Do you know why this could be? I’ve had lots of luck with many of your recipes in the past (my mother is hooked on your cookie dough pretzel bites) but this one didn’t seem to come out right.

    Hi Sally!
    first of all, congrats for your website and receipes, I LOVE IT!
    I’m from Italy, but lived in tue US for a while and I’m in love with the States and its desserts.
    I’m addicted to cookies and it was such a pain not being able to eat them anytime I want them at home, since in my country they’re not popular at all.
    So, I basically tried all CCC receipes from yuor website in order to find THE ones and this is it.
    I tried both the brown butter CCC (which I loved) and THE CCC, but i much prefere these.
    First af all, the chunks! I think they work so much better than regular chocolate chips! I use a very good quality chocolate for the chunks and cut it in squares of the same measure. when it melts in the cookied it gives the cookie that extra flavor which is absolutely devine! Then…chewiness. Godness, it’s so authentic! Last but not least: the fact that no mixer is required. I think this makes them more rustic and provides and extra ‘home made texture’.
    I was wondering wether a teaspoon or two of maple syrup can be added, in order to give them its great aroma?
    Thanks for the receipe, once again.
    You made my day, months and years to come.
    Can’t wait to make them for my niece and my friends and try them with M&M’s and other wonderful treats.
    You’re the best!
