I LOVE chocolate and I adore chewy cookies. I also tend to like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies – possibly because they tend to be chewy. This chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe is the result of lots of tinkering with different recipes. I’m so glad that I finally came up with a version my family and I adore!

This recipe made about four dozen cookies. The dough towards the end is VERY thick, you’ll need a good wooden spoon to mix it. Emma loved stirring the dough before it got too thick. We used Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips, which I’ve written about loving before. These are huge chocolate chips, it’s more like eating a cookie with chunks of chocolate.
