Chocolate white chocolate chip cookies are simple to make and are a total crowd pleaser!

Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Dark and Semi Sweet Chocolate by Jelly ToastOur church festival was last weekend and it’s pretty fun as far as church festivals are concerned. For weeks leading up to it, there have been a flurry of notes going home asking for volunteers and donations of baked goods for the festival. Anytime there is a request for donated baked goods, I instantly perk up - obviously.

Before giving it a lot of thought, I signed up to bring cookies and went about my business. I figured that I could come up with my cookie idea later and that there was still time.

Which there was.

But what I didn’t factor in is my penchant for procrastinating.

So, the day before the cookies needed to be delivered came around and I was still not totally sure what I was going to make. The “putting off the decision” was becoming less cute and more obnoxious by the second. Finally, I remembered a cookie recipe that I had seen on an episode of The Pioneer Woman for Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies. The name jumped into my head because it was something that the Buddy had found ridiculously hilarious due to the number of times the word “chocolate” appeared in the title. That’s totally his type of humor.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I write a weekly review of The Pioneer Woman’s show over on Food Fanatic. Have you ever seen her show? It’s adorable. Seriously. The food is classic PW. Home-cooked and mouthwatering plus her family is just the sweetest. It’s a show that I like to watch with my kids who get the biggest kick out of all the cattle ranching work that they do.

I have a pretty good visual memory and if I see something once, it will stick in my head. Much better than if I’m just told something. So, as I was wracking my brain for a recipe, this one popped into my head. I knew it would be a crowd pleaser: classic chocolate cookie with chocolate and white chocolate chips in it. What’s not to love?

Luckily, I had everything I needed for a batch of these cookies and I decided to mix things up and use a combination of bittersweet chocolate chips as well as dark chocolate chips (because I turn everything into dark chocolate if given the chance). I also stirred in a bit of instant espresso powder to give the chocolate an even bigger boost. The results were fantastic! Soft cookies that are sweet, but happily not too sweet, and full of chunks of melted chocolate.

My kids were thrilled because the recipe made so many cookies (5 1/2 dozen) that there were enough to keep some at home, as well as take to the festival.

The festival and cookies were both hits. And I have PW to thank – at least for the cookies!

  1. These cookies look fabulous! I am so with you on baking procrastinating though. I think when I have to bake for events, church etc. its always worse cos I feel the pressure! I bet these cookies were a hit!

  2. I am a fellow procrastinator and I hate it, but the truth is the best ideas come under pressure. You did well with these cookies, my friend. One cannot have too many “chocolates” in the title!

  3. Emily, the picture of the cookies stacked on the glass…LOVE! I have a tendency to procrastinate too…even when I have a good idea of what I want to make. Somehow I still end up rushing to finish my dish before every church potluck. Glad I’m not the only one. :)
