Chewy Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies

"This is a take on the Nestle Tollhouse recipe. Only one added ingredient, dark brown sugar, melted butter and a smidgen more flour make the difference... I had to sell my soul to my aunt so she'd tell me why hers tasted soooo good! Chewy chocolate chip cookie heaven!!!!!"

  1. Yeah baby! I put these in an airtight containter and they are still chewy and delish two days later! I used organic molasses and Ghiradelli semi sweet chips and I have not been able to stop eating them! Thanks for a great new favourite!
  2. Wowee Zoweee! These are something special. The molasses adds a carmelly flavor to the cookies. I don't think I could make them any other way now! Thanks Che~Sara!
  3. These are not pretty cookies, but they sure do taste wonderful. They came out flat and monochromatic, kind of like the color of the milk chocolate chips I used. However, they are very tasty, chewy and soft. They were enjoyed by grownups and kids alike. Great alternative to the Tollhouse chocolate cookie recipes.
  4. Throw out all the other recipes, if you like lighly crisp buttery edges and chewy middles this recipe is for you. And, I actually think that they get better overnight if you can make them last that long!
  5. Best chocolate chip cookies ever!! I didn't have molasses so I substituted honey and they turned out perfect. I will use this recipe from now on. I will probably use milk chocolate chips next time just becasue I prefer them.


I'm happily married and have two boys (age 9 and 14 months) and a 1 month old little girl! I am a basketball fanatic, love to travel and love the oregon coast. I love classical music and when I cook, it's always Vivaldi (the only composer I don't like is Beethoven) I love making new recipes all the time now and enjoy learning about the people who posted them. Thanks in advance for any recipe I try of yours!
