  • Butter – Softened lightly salted butter works best for this recipe. If you add unsalted butter, simply add a pinch of salt to the dough.
  • Sugar – Brown sugar and granulated white sugar add sweetness to the cookies.
  • Egg – The egg provides binding, structure, moisture, leavening, and contributes to the texture and richness of these huge cookies.
  • Vanilla – Vanilla essence, extract or pure vanilla beans offer a depth of flavor.
  • FlourAll-purpose flour works best for this recipe but you can also use white spelt flour.
  • Leavening agents – Baking powder and soda help the cookies rise and give them a soft and chewy texture.
  • Chocolate – Semi-sweet chocolate chips and two pieces of dark chocolate (70%+) are needed for this recipe. You can use milk chocolate if you prefer a sweeter and less bitter flavor.

  • Make a 5 oz dough ball and flatten it in your hand. Place two pieces of the 1.8 ounces dark chocolate in the center and fold the dough around it, sealing it completely and shaping it into a round ball. Repeat this process for the remaining dough and chocolate pieces.

  • Place the stuffed dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving enough space between the giant cookies to allow for spreading during baking. Refrigerate the dough balls for 2 hours. Chilling the dough helps the cookies maintain their shape during baking.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Bake the chilled cookies in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for at least 15 minutes on the sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy these giant chocolate stuffed cookies warm with a gooey chocolate center. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days and preheat them lightly for the center to melt again. Enjoy!


Don’t overbeat the mixture: When combining the ingredients, mix until just combined. Overmixing can lead to tougher cookies, so it’s best to stop mixing as soon as the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Let them cool after baking: Allow these extra big cookies to cool on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This helps the cookies firm up and set, resulting in the desired texture.
Reheat lightly for a gooey center: If you prefer a gooey center in your cookies, you can reheat them lightly in a microwave or oven. This will warm the cookies and melt the chocolate slightly, giving you a deliciously gooey center. Be cautious not to overheat them to avoid drying them out.
