One Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am not sure there is anything much better than warm chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven.  I mean, there are a few things, but not much.  To make them even better how about making them all in one bowl and not chilling time….yep it is now better for sure.

Scoop-i-dy Scoop Scoop

One of my favorite tricks to make all my cookies the same size, so they all cook the same way is to use a cookie scoop.  I understand not everyone my have a handy cookie scoop laying around but don’t worry.  You can use a melon baller, a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon and just roll the dough into balls.  

The goal is to just make all the cookie mounds about the same size.

A little extra something 

To make these cookies a little extra special I decided to go with dark chocolate chunks instead of the standard semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Now don’t get me wrong I am a fan of the more traditional semi sweet chip but every once in a while it is nice to change it up a bit.

For me adding in the dark chocolate makes this a perfect cookie.  It adds a bit of a bitter bite which is a nice contrast to the sweetness of this super tender dough.

If dark chocolate is not your thing you could use semi-sweet, milk chocolate or a combo of peanut butter and chocolate chips to really amp them up.
