Sometimes Nate gets mad at me for making a whole batch of cookies, I try to only eat a couple cookies (unless its my cheat day) and then we’re left with a couple dozen cookies that need to be eaten. Although Nate’s coworkers love sharing in the goodies I make, that make it to his work, sometimes the cookies don’t make it there because he eats them. Or, lets be honest, I eat them.

I found this recipe on pinterest and it is the perfect solution. This recipe makes either two giant chocolate chip cookies, or 4 normal sized cookies. And they are amazing too! Its pretty much the same ratios as my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, but instead of making about 2 1/2 dozen cookies this recipe makes just 4 cookies.

(Its great to use a toaster oven for this recipe if you have one because then you don’t have to heat your whole oven for just 4 cookies, or throw these into your oven after you’ve made dinner in there and the oven is already hot)

These cookies have the perfect chocolate chip cookie texture, with a slightly crispy outside, soft and chewy middle and they are loaded with chocolate chips through out. (The best kind is definitely Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips! — I tend to like a ratio of more cookie to chocolate unless I am using these chocolate chips, then I am happy to stuff my cookie full of their creamy milk chocolatey goodness.)

This recipe is perfect for sharing with a friend, your honey bunch, or just for eating yourself. Because lets be honest, there are plenty of days where I can eat 4 cookies on my own! Each cookie is about 147 calories, give or take a few calories depending on brands that you use – especially chocolate chip brands, or if you sneak a few extra chocolate chips on top of your cookie dough as its baking – because it gives it that perfect chocolatey top!

Perfect enjoyed with a big glass of milk!

  1. Thanks so much for a yummy recipe that so easily was turned vegan :) oh and doubled lol almost double the cooking time but so worth the wait!!

    1. Jenn! I’m glad you made it work for you!!

    They taste great… but look nothing like the picture! Mine didn’t flatten out at all and kind of look like biscuits, and I had to cook them for 15 min to get them cooked. I’m wondering what I did wrong!

    1. Did you separate the dough into 4 cookies or just 2? With my other cookies for 2 I slightly flatten the cookie before baking, but these have been my flattest of all. I know one recipe I saw suggested banging the pan against your countertop right after taking them out of the oven. Glad they still tasted good for you!

    I have tried several recipes for chocolate chips cookies for 2 with not such good results.
    I decided to try this last night with my daughter. These were really good!! :)

    1. Thank you Kristine. I am so glad this one turned out for you! I’ve got a peanut butter chocolate cookies for two that I am posting tomorrow and I hope you’ll like that one too!

    i’ve made these cookies twice and they have such a rich flavor, they’re delicious!

  5. Great cookies! We LOVE peanut butter, so I added about a half teaspoon of it. Perfect!

    1. I have been wanting to try a pb version. So it turned out for you? Good to know. I’ll definitely be trying that soon!

  6. How delicious and what a GREAT idea! We’re having a Cookie Party this week on our Foodie Friends Friday linky party. Come on over!

    i love these recipes because i love baking but don’t want to have a bunch of cookies staring at me on a plate!

    1. Exactly. It takes away the temptation.

  8. I’d eat both. :) These look yummy!

  9. This is perfect! For so long I have made a whole batch and rolled them into balls. Then I would bake what I wanted and freeze the rest. This would work but I have no self control. I would sneak into the freezer and eat a ball of cookie dough…or two. I like only making what you are going to eat. Less tempting!

    1. Exactly! Although like probably everyone I love a good ball of frozen cookie dough now and then, it is much less tempting for me to eat it all at once if I only make a few cookies at a time! Plus I think they are just as delicious :)
