My recipe for these Big and Chewy Chocolate Chip are worth all the butter, sugar and chocolate chips I’ve used all these years.

The first time I made these cookies (and they turned out), I was the most favorited person in my household!  When my boys saw how huge they were, there eyes lit up!

Slightly crispy edges, but the inside has the best chewy center.  Super irresistible! You can certainly make them regular size, but they actually bake up better if you divide them up using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.  I really prefer to use a super large cookie scoop like this one from Amazon.

If you follow me on Instagram (which I hope you do!) you would have seen in my Insta Stories that I set a new year’s goal to eat more cookies without feeling guilty!  I’ll clarify that I meant to eat more worth while cookies like these and not feel guilty!  No more wasting my time on store bought or mediocre cookie recipes.  This one has my heart and will be a family favorite for years to come!

I taped a whole Facebook Live video showing you exactly how I make them.
