Thick Chocolate Chip Cookies

In the spirit of Christmas, I ended up going into a bit of a baking frenzy. I’ve made two batches of oatmeal cookies, oatmeal scotchies, and multiple batches of this recipe of chocolate chip cookies! I found this particular recipe on the back of a bag of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Chips and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

Thick Chocolate Chip Cookies


These cookies are  thick and moist! For those that like their cookies crispy, cook them longer. These cookies were so good, that when I made a separate whole batch for my boyfriend’s Christmas party at his Air Force base,  they were gone that same day! Who doesn’t love Chocolate Chip cookies, right?

Plus, being the lazy cook/baker that I am, I was thrilled that these cookies did not require the chilling of dough (and therefore longer wait times–I like my cookies ready ASAP for “taste testing” 😛 ), or sifting, which I always feel obligated to do.  I didn’t add any chopped nuts to my recipe, but you can include them! I have no doubt that the recipe is delicious either way.  I’ll definitely be trying more of Hershey’s recipes in the future! Click here for the recipe or see below. Enjoy and happy holidays!
