It’s the freeeeeeeakin’ weekend! And my bridal shower is on Sunday. 🙂

Question. Do you like these gold wedges for it? My dress it white.

By the way, my friend texted this to me yesterday. And it explains me (and you?) to a T. The kicker? I got her text while I was in Target buying a candle I don’t need. Oy.

So, I’m going to make today’s post short and sweet. If you are on a diet, please do yourself a favor and step away from the computer. You won’t resist these hypnotizing swirls.

This swirly cookie has been in the works since last year… when I first introduced peanut butter chocolate swirl cookies to my blog. Surely a reader favorite recipe right there.

Have you tried them? ↓ ↓

Today’s confused cookie recipe combines two favorites. A rich, soft-baked chocolate chip cookie paired with an indulgent, rich chocolate white chocolate chip cookie recipe. The BEST of both cookie worlds.

Self control, you don’t stand a chance!!

They’re laughably simple. Roll two cookie doughs together. Bake. DONE.

Wham, bam, thank you ma’am.

Eat while warm. Melty chocolate everywhere. Have a glass of milk handy.

Chocolate on more chocolate. With white chocolate. And more chocolate. Told ya, these swirly twirly, ultra soft cookies are hypnotizing! Don’t they look like little yin-yangs?

Chocolate White Chocolate Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg*
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons (53g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk*
  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons (202g) white chocolate chips

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • 3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg*
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch (aka cornflour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons (202g) semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Make the chocolate cookie dough: Cream the butter and sugars together with a hand or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides and bottom as needed. Beat in the egg and vanilla on high speed until combined, scraping down the sides as needed. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix it into the wet ingredients on low speed. The dough will be thick. Again on low speed, mix in the milk until combined. The dough will be sticky. Fold in 1 cup of white chocolate chips.
  2. Make the chocolate chip cookie dough: Cream the butter and sugars together with a hand or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides and bottom as needed. Beat in the egg and vanilla on high speed until combined, scraping down the sides as needed. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix it into the wet ingredients on low speed. The dough will be thick. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  3. Cover both cookie doughs with aluminum foil and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory; the cookies will spread all over the place if the cookie doughs are not chilled. I recommend chilling for at least 4-6 hours for thicker cookies (as pictured).
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line cookie sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Measure 1.5 Tablespoons of chocolate cookie dough. Roll into a ball. Take 1.5 Tablespoons of chocolate chip cookie dough. Roll into a ball. Press the two balls together between your hands and roll them into 1 large ball. Repeat rolling for each cookie. The chocolate cookie dough will get onto your hands, so wash/wipe them after you roll each cookie. It is important the chocolate cookie dough is chilled or else it will be even more messy.
  5. Bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes. 11-12 minutes for a crispier cookie. The cookies will look very soft, puffy, and almost undone. Remove from the oven. With the remaining white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips you have leftover, press a few into each cookie. (This is just for looks and not required.) Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet as they will continue to “bake” and set up.


  1. Make Ahead & Freezing Instructions: Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week. Baked cookies freeze well – up to three months. Unbaked cookie dough balls freeze well – up to three months. Bake frozen cookie dough balls for an extra minute, no need to thaw.
  2. Eggs: Room temperature egg is preferred for both cookie doughs for easy mixing and even disbursement through each cookie. Good rule of thumb – when using room temperature butter, always use room temperature egg(s) unless otherwise specified.
  3. Milk: Any milk is ok – cow’s (skim, 1%, 2%, whole), soy, almond, or coconut.
  4. Chocolate cookies are my inside-out chocolate chip cookies and the chocolate chip cookies are THE chocolate chip cookie recipe. My chewy chocolate chips would work as well!

The ULTIMATE chocolate chip cookie!


  1. Definetly the wedges! Super cute! As for the cookies……OH my goodness! Yowza! Makin these for sure! Can’t wait.

    Have a lovely time at your bridal shower! Hope your day is super special and happy!! ; )

  2. Sally, those gold wedge shoes are absolutely beautiful!! They will go perfectly with your wedding dress. The only thing that I would be worried about is…are they comfortable to wear for hours after the wedding…walking, dancing, picture taking, more walking, more dancing, more picture taking, etc. ? Beautiful shoes doesn’t always = comfort. A back-up plan is to bring an extra pair of comfy shoes for all the reception fun stuff that you will be doing. 🙂

    As for these cookies, they are so adorable. My hubby and kids are coming home this weekend, after visiting my MIL for a week, so I am going to be surprising them with a batch of these cookies. I just bought this really cool cookie stick pan today that I am dying to try out…I am addicted to baking supplies!! I also stocked up on some more sprinkles…chocolate and rainbow…yummo!!! 🙂

    Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy your bridal shower with your family and friends to the fullest!! 🙂

    1. Hi Kathryn! The wedges are actually my bridal shower shoes – not my wedding shoes! My wedding shoes are completely different. Both pairs are surprisingly very comfortable, too! I know what it’s like being addicted to baking supplies… you should see my cabinets and drawers! Have a wonderful weekend.

      1. Then those are beautiful bridal shower shoes!!! I remember all the wonderful memories from 1995 when I was planning my wedding to my hubby Steve. I lucked out and found a wedding shop that was going out of business. I loved the shoes I found (on sale!) since they matched my dress perfectly.

        I am sure the house y’all found in the Philly area will have lots of space for your baking supplies. 🙂 I am about to embark on an organization adventure in my kitchen and garage to put all my baking supplies in one location. 🙂

  3. Adding these to the list of desserts I’ll be baking for my daughters 1st birthday party. We’re having a dessert buffet and so far EVERY dessert is from your blog, you make the tastiest treats of all time.

    1. I’m honored that so many of my goodies will be made for the party. Thank you Kristi! I hope everyone has a sweet tooth 😉

  4. So neat! I love the idea of rolling two cookie doughs into one drop cookie. The finished result is really cool – definitely reminded me of yin/yang!

  5. Target can be seriously dangerous for me. I can go in for a coupe of items and leave with a cart full. It’s ridiculous! These cookies are ridiculously amazing looking. I love the combo, very yin & yang

  6. My self control goes out the window pretty much everytime I read your blog, so this is no exception! These cookies look amazing, and they are so cute – I love the swirl! I hope you have an amazing shower – can’t wait to see all the fun gifts you are going to get!!

  7. Hi, I was just wondering; if I decide to freeze the dough balls, do I defrost and then bake? Or add more baking time?

  8. I was in love with the peanut butter ones you posted before, and I’m loving these too! Maybe even more? I’m such a chocolate chip cookie freak at heart. A target freak too— so I TOTALLY relate! Have fun at your shower!!!

  9. Oh, wow!! Your cookies looks so yummy! I think I’m gonna go crazy for these! I will bake them for sure – next weekend!
    And thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
    Keep up with your good work! I really really like it!

    Wishing you a beautiful wedding shower sunday!

  10. Love these cookies! Two fabulous treats in one! Double win!
    Hope you are having tons of fun on your shower weekend!

  11. My God, those wedges are gorgeous! Gold+white=classy, I say go for it! You’ll make a beautiful, beautiful bride. 🙂

  12. Oh. Wow. I really need to up my game in the kitchen and starting make more effort, these look incredible!

    – Nina

  13. Well your shower is over – and I hope you had an amazing time! – but I love those shoes! #iwantmyownpair

    Love these cookies too – perfect for my dual personality. Pinned!

  14. I always love your cookie creations!! This looks amazing and must be tried soon! Happy bridal shower weekend. I hope you had a great great time and feel very excited about being a bride!! Things started feeling real and sinking in after my bridal shower weekend which was three months before the wedding.

  15. Gorgeous wedges. Where do you find all this adorable stuff??
    Haha … oh wait, that is SO me at Target too. That place is dangerous, I probably could spend a fortune there.
    These cookies – no kidding, self control, you lost when I looked at these pictures! Two kinds of chips? Two kinds of dough? Sold, sold, and sold! Pinned!

    1. Though I usually buy my clothes and shoes at Target (seriously, they have the cutest shoes!)… I bought the wedges at DSW. Thanks for pinning Mary Frances. Hope you had a great weekend!

  16. On a lighter note, those gold wedges looked AMAZING on you (Looks like you had a lovely bridal shower!) and I am hopfully going to make these cookies today- have the butter sitting out to become nice and soft.
    I am sure they will be lovely jubbly! (I just really wanted to type lovely jubbly, I know it is really cheesy)

  17. Your wedding date is slowly coming up Sally — I’m so happy for you!! Your bridal shower looked like so much fun with your friends, and you looked even more gorgeous than usual. I bet Kevin was sad he couldn’t come along! 😉 But I’m sure he was okay since you probably left lots of sweet treats back at the apartment for him to nibble on while you were gone. If you left a plate of these cookies for me, I’d be the happiest girl alive — they look amazing!

    1. You would LOOOOVE these cookies Amy! And thanks for all the sweet words. I cannot believe how close the wedding is! I wish you could come. We should just elope in CA.

      1. Weeeeeell, if you can’t convince Kevin to elope in California (who wouldn’t want to?? it’s so gorgeous here in September!), then… Maybe I can convince my mom to give me some of her frequent flier miles to visit Philadelphia again! 😉 😉

  18. Sally, these are fantastic!!! I only had 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips, so I also used 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips. Super! I scooped both doughs using my OXO medium (1 1/2 T) cookie scoop. I let them chill and then smooshed them together.

    I may leave the milk out of the chocolate dough next time just to see if they’re less sticky. After smooshing the first 6 together and putting them in the oven, I decided I would just bake the rest separately and avoid the hassle of rinsing my hands so many times. Then I tasted them and WOW! They were better than I expected. Needless to say, I smooshed the rest together. 🙂

    My husband loves the larger cookies, but I prefer normal sized ones, so after smooshing them all together, I decided to half some of the dough balls by cutting them in half and reshaping them. That worked fine and we’re all happy. Well, my son doesn’t like peanut butter, but I had 7 extra scoops of the regular chocolate chip cookie dough, so he gets to eat those.

    Sorry for the novel. Thanks for the recipe!!

  19. Hi Sally, I am from Singapore! Saw your recipe and decided to give it a try. It sure was fun doing it. Though the cookies didn’t turn out as beautiful. But, I had great reviews from my friends! And even had comments like (Not sure if I am able to say this) “Its even better then Subway!” So, I guess it was awesome! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!

  20. These look amazing. I’m visiting my in-laws and would like to treat them to these! Are there any special instructions for high altitude? I’m at about 8500 feet. Thanks! 🙂

    1. Hi Celeste! I’m actually unsure. I’ve never baked at high altitude before. Some readers find this helpful:

  21. I made the dough for these last night, but I’m going to have to wait until tomorrow night to bake them! I was surprised by how wet and sticky the doughs were compared to typical chocolate chip cookies, but now that they’ve been in the fridge overnight, they’re pretty solid. Hope they look half as pretty as yours when they’re done!

    1. Made the first tray of them, and they turned out perfectly! I have two suggestions: 1) Make the chocolate chip dough first, then the white chocolate chip dough. This allows you to avoid cleaning the mixer between batches. If you do it the way it’s listed, your chocolate chip dough will get dirty looking. 2) Roll all the half-balls of chocolate chip dough and then all the half-balls of the white chocolate chip dough. You won’t have to wash your hands between them. Then re-refrigerate. If you work fast, you can roll together a bunch of the halves before your hands get dirty, and then you can just wipe them on a towel and keep going. I would never have the patience to wash them each time.

  22. Hey Sally!! No yellow cake mix around the house tonight so birthday cake cookies for another day… so late tonight I’m trying this recipe! New House, New Stove….Convection available…. when to use it? I like soft chewy cookies and I do not EVER bake crispy cookies…. so to use or not to use and if so… temp and time variations? Thanks!

  23. Quick! Advice needed urgently. I just made the chocolate chip batch. Was about the start on the next one and realised I forgot the brown sugar 🙁 🙁 are they ruined?? Do I have to start again!! And if by a lovely chance they’re not ruined… Should I put the brown sugar in the next batch or leave it out of that one too. Grr I’m so annoying!

    1. Hi Tania, the cookies will not be sweet enough and their texture will be off. I suggest you start again. I always lay out all of the ingredients I need before beginning. Helps me to not forget anything. Enjoy!
