Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

You came for these cookies, and you shall get them, but first …

If you love baking as much as I do, and you have limited counter space like I do, stackable cooling racks are the perfect solution.  I love my stackable, non-stick cooling racks so much I decided to buy an extra set and give them away! 

That’s right, I’m having my first ever giveaway! 

All you have to do is comment on this post, making sure to use a valid email address when filling out the comment form so I can contact you if you win, an that’s it!  Easy-peasy!  One entry per person, please.  No entries after 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time Sunday, May 3, 2009.  Winners will be randomly selected and announced Monday at 6:00 am Pacific Time.

Good luck … now let’s get back to cookies!

If you do not like chocolate, turn away now.  If, however, you are like me and you can’t get enough chocolate let me introduce you to this cookie.

 Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

I made these for some out-of-town friends and they were a major hit!  I am making these for a wedding reception in a few weeks because, as the bride said, “Who would not like chocolate chips wrapped in a thin layer of buttery cookie?”  Who indeed.

Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

They are called overload because they have three times the chocolate chips of most chocolate chip cookie recipes I have tried.   See for yourself.

See, I’m not kidding.  That is some serious chocolate. 

These are a snap to make and turn out really pretty.  Pretty is important, because so often I find chocolate chip cookies are disappointingly flat and lumpy.  Not these.  They do spread some, but they retain a nice round shape, and are nice and plump.  They are hard to resist!

    Yikes! Those look fantastic! I need something to bring to my daughter’s piano recital and this looks like just the ticket.

  2. Anyone who craves chocolate, in a non-bar form, needs to make your cookies. Less is more for some, but WE know the truth.
    Thanks for the recipe and congrats on your first giveaway.

    Holy cow! Have some cookie with those chocolate chips! 🙂 Seriously, these look like they’re right up my alley. I looovveee chocolate chip cookies.

  29. Natalie says:

    May i know 1 cup equal to how many grams? How big is the cup?

  30. Natalie says:

    may i know 1 cup equal to how many grams?

  31. Kelly says:

    It is a standard size US dry measurig cup, approx. 5oz which is 141.75 grams. Give or take.

  32. Jackie says:


    I was wondering if I could add toasted nuts to the batter, if so how much nuts do you think I could add.

  33. Kelly says:

    Jackie – You could add as much as a cup pf nuts. You will yield more cookies that way. Pecans or walnuts would be lovely!

  34. Soraya says:

    Just made these and I think I might just blame you for those extra pounds on the scale!
    Great cookies, seriously.

  35. Tara says:

    for 3 months my boyfriend and i have been trying different chocolate chip cookie recipes trying to find one we both like… WE HAVE A WINNER!! i put about 1/2 the chocolate of this in mine because i didnt want to die of chocolate overdose 🙂 but they were AMAZING. only needed to cook them for 12-13 minutes because they were smaller too, wow im glad i found your blog!!

  36. Loren says:

    I made these a few weeks ago in my dorm kitchen. EVERYONE LOVED THEM.
    I LOVED them.
    When it comes to baking I’m usually specific with all the measurements, and I can tell you now that I had to do this recipe thrice (OCD?).
    This recipe blew my tongue away. 🙂
    Thank you! And merry Christmas!
