Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

You came for these cookies, and you shall get them, but first …

If you love baking as much as I do, and you have limited counter space like I do, stackable cooling racks are the perfect solution.  I love my stackable, non-stick cooling racks so much I decided to buy an extra set and give them away! 

That’s right, I’m having my first ever giveaway! 

All you have to do is comment on this post, making sure to use a valid email address when filling out the comment form so I can contact you if you win, an that’s it!  Easy-peasy!  One entry per person, please.  No entries after 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time Sunday, May 3, 2009.  Winners will be randomly selected and announced Monday at 6:00 am Pacific Time.

Good luck … now let’s get back to cookies!

If you do not like chocolate, turn away now.  If, however, you are like me and you can’t get enough chocolate let me introduce you to this cookie.

 Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

I made these for some out-of-town friends and they were a major hit!  I am making these for a wedding reception in a few weeks because, as the bride said, “Who would not like chocolate chips wrapped in a thin layer of buttery cookie?”  Who indeed.

Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies

They are called overload because they have three times the chocolate chips of most chocolate chip cookie recipes I have tried.   See for yourself.

Chocolate Chip Overload Cookies 

See, I’m not kidding.  That is some serious chocolate. 

These are a snap to make and turn out really pretty.  Pretty is important, because so often I find chocolate chip cookies are disappointingly flat and lumpy.  Not these.  They do spread some, but they retain a nice round shape, and are nice and plump.  They are hard to resist!

    Wow – love all of the chocolate chips in these cookies… my husband would LOVE these. They look delicious! Saving this recipe for later!

  • keithgarrick

    That is wrong on so many good levels. It is so wrong that I am doing it today. I have always been traditionally bad at baking, but foodbuzz recipes are from foodies so I am down with this one,THANX

  • Alta

    That IS a lot of chocolate! I’m game for those. I was thinking last night, as I bit into a square of Green and Black’s espresso dark chocolate, how tasty would this be in a chocolate chip cookie? Maybe you have just further inspired me to make some cookies! :)

  • Theresa

    Oh my! Look at all that chocolate! Great, now I have another chocolate chip cookie recipe to try. Thanks a lot! 😉

  • s. stockwell

  • mumay

    i think your cookies are calling me …. !!!!

  • Yvonne, My Halal Kitchen

    You got me coming to your blog by the mere words ‘chocolate chip’ (from Food Buzz), who doesn’t love those two words together? But, you kept me interested by two things- gorgeous, gorgeous pictures and a very generous giveaway. Great content, lovely presentation- well worth coming back to over and over again. Thanks!

  • Bread and Jam

    Why did I read this post at work? My mouth is watering and I still have 2 hours to go before I can access anything chocolate. :) I am going to try this recipe out with my sister, a fellow chocoholic. Thank you for sharing. :)

  • Cassi

    I would definitely need the stackable racks as I am afraid that I might be baking these cookies weekly!

  • jenn

    Chocolate chip overload indeed!!! Remember I’m a admitted chocoholic. So this right up my alley. I think I may just have had a chocolate relapse. =)

  • Natalie

    OH MY!!! I am definitely drooling! I have to make these :) I might try using three types of chocolate though…. Dark, milk, and white, a chocolate lovers DREAM!Thanks for the recipe!Kudos to you!

  • Leela@SheSimmers

    Hey, I came here for cookies and I shall *not* turn away. :) Man, when you say overloaded, you really mean it. These cookies look delicious. You can taste the pictures.

  • Katie

    I just started a “lifestyle change”. Why did I look at these amazing cookies?! Maybe I’ll just do a half batch… 😀

  • Pat Winship

    I’m definitely going to try these– my son will love them too. He will probably tell his friends that “There will be cookies and grief counseling after final exams are over…” I too have limited counter space, and those racks look really great.

  • tee

    ooh myyy.

    haha truly inspiring.:P i should add a heap load of choco chips too!

  • jasmine

    wow. i don’t think i could handle that much chocolate in a cookie! weird, i know…

  • Joanne

    I wonder how many cookies it would take for me to be on chocolate chip overload. Chocolate is my passion and I’m just going to have to make these delicious looking cookies. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Kathy

    Our family motto when it comes to baking is “more is better”. Are you sure we aren’t cousins or something?

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • judy

  • Jaci

    MMMMM, I am always adding more chocolate chips then the recipe calls for. Just mailed a box of cookies off to my Son who is in the Navy.

    Wow, I don’t think I’ve seen a more stuffed cookie!

    I have to use this recipe, instead of my usual recipe…I am making 3 batches for my daughter’s school fundraiser!
    That cooling rack would come in SO handy!
    Thank you for the Yummy recipe!

  • Donna

    Without a doubt, I am so making these.

  • Melanie M. Cogdill

    Cooling racks would be handy. Getting into baking again as my 12 year old has so many food allergies to things like all nuts and coconut that no bakery anywhere is safe so teaching 12yo to bake!

  • Lori @ RecipeGirl

    Yep, that’s some some SERIOUS overload on those Chocolate Chip cookies that’s for sure. Love the idea of adding tons of ’em! The stackable cooling racks are a great idea… it always seems like I have cookies spread out all over the place!

  • Janice

    Whew! I got a chocolate-rush just looking at the photos. There’s just enough dough to hold the chips together, huh? Thanks for the recipe.

  • deeba

    Oh I like this. No, change that-I LOVE these. There’s more chocolate than cookie in there…how indulgent!!

  • Jody

    Now those are some serious chocolate chip cookies! A must try for the true chocoholic!

  • Donna @ WayMoreHomemade

    The choc chip cookie recipe that I’ve been using lately has molasses and it is… well… amazing. Imagine that with so many chocolate chips. The word “heaven” is coming to mind.

    Holy cow! Have some cookie with those chocolate chips! :-) Seriously, these look like they’re right up my alley. I looovveee chocolate chip cookies.

  • raych

    I love how those are really just hunks of chocolate-chip with a thin cookie veneer. I would eat a dozen in a heart-beat. Also, I NEEED to win that stackable rack.

  • Natalie

    May i know 1 cup equal to how many grams? How big is the cup?

  • Natalie

    may i know 1 cup equal to how many grams?

  • Kelly

    It is a standard size US dry measurig cup, approx. 5oz which is 141.75 grams. Give or take.

  • Jackie


    I was wondering if I could add toasted nuts to the batter, if so how much nuts do you think I could add.

  • Kelly

    Jackie – You could add as much as a cup pf nuts. You will yield more cookies that way. Pecans or walnuts would be lovely!

    I made these a few weeks ago in my dorm kitchen. EVERYONE LOVED THEM.

    When it comes to baking I’m usually specific with all the measurements, and I can tell you now that I had to do this recipe thrice (OCD?).
    This recipe blew my tongue away. :)
    Thank you! And merry Christmas!
