Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Total Time

I recently made these cookies after finding the recipe on the package of Nestle Chocolatier chocolate chunks. This is a great cookie for those who love dark chocolate. They are very moist and chewy. This recipe makes a dozen jumbo-sized cookies, but I'm sure you could make them smaller if you like. My family LOVES these cookies.

These cookies are so good they were gone in no time! I made them as an addition to my 2008 Christmas Cookie Tray and will definitely be sure to add them to my next year's Christmas Tray as well. But be sure, I won't wait until Christmas to make them again!! Too good to wait!! The 1/4 cup makes a very nice sized cookie for your chocolate lovers. Thanks, Lainey!

Our nephew had some friends over today and this was the perfect snack for them. I too added nuts (chopped pecans). Smiles had replaced the cookies that were gone in a flash. They really enjoyed these fudgy cookies:)

Oh my goodness, I thought I'd died and went to chocolate heaven! Took these to a football party yesterday and every single cookie was gone! So chocolaty and very addictive. I used a 1.5T cookie scoop and baked for 14 minutes.
