Consider this recipe the Part Two of a series of giant cookie recipes. So far it's just my giant chocolate chip cookie and this one, but the first one was such a hit it inspired me to keep this party going!

This double chocolate cookie is like eating a big disc of brownie. It's basically a brownie the size of my husband's giant Muppet hands, and it's everything I never knew I needed.

Reasons to make small batch double chocolate chip cookies

  • You have a cookie craving and just need one or two cookies to scratch the itch
  • You're trying to exercise some restraint (… a little)
  • You don't have enough ingredients on hand for a full batch of cookies
  • The dough doesn't need to be chilled
  • It can be made in one bowl
  • You don't need a mixer – just a whisk and a wooden spoon
  • It's a great excuse to use a giant spatula (aff link) like this one
Labeled ingredients for giant double chocolate chip cookie
  • Gently press down on the top of the cookie dough mound so that the depth is uniform and it bakes more evenly. However, if you're a fan of the more doughy center, just mound the dough on the baking sheet and throw caution to the wind!
  • Add a few more chocolate chunks or chocolate chips to the top of the cookie before baking. It's purely for aesthetic purposes, but the bonus is… well, more chocolate. And this is a double chocolate cookie recipe, after all.
  • Add a little espresso powder to the dough. It brings out the chocolate flavor – recommended, but not required!
  • You could add in chopped nuts, M&Ms, or white chocolate chips if you want to mix things up even more. I'd recommend adding no more than 2 Tablespoons of additional add ins.
  • You want to make sure you don't overbake them, because then they get dry. You want them to be soft inside to get the real brownie-esque cookie experience.
  • Use a quarter sheet pan (aff link) and quarter sheet silicone mat (aff link) – they're the perfect size for a small batch recipe like this!

If you'd rather have two cookies instead of one big cookie, you can split the dough in half and bake them for a bit shorter time. You could also make three smaller cookies.

Space your cookies a couple inches apart to give them room to spread, and bake for around 7-8 minutes or until they're set on top.

In the future, I'm hoping to put out a sugar cookie, funfetti cookie, peanut butter cookie, snickerdoodle cookie, and who knows what else I may come up with. If you have a request, comment below!

I'm just in love with these giant cookies, and I hope you will be, too.
