alyssa's wicked chunky chocolate chip cookies & free valentine printables

Today, I baked the chunkiest chocolate chip cookies ever! Oh my yumminess! I have to share this recipe with you so you can do the same. 

Wicked Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups softened butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping the bowl often, until mixed well. Reduce speed to low. Beat gradually adding flour mixture, until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Droup dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 2" apart, onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. (DO NOT OVER BAKE!) Let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets. Get a big glass of cold milk and start dunking! 


Heather Bullard over at is giving away a free sheet of Valentine printables (and has other adorable printable things too!) Make the cookies above, put them in a baggie, cut out a printable heart, attach to the cookie bag with ribbon and you have an instant sweet treat for someone special ;).


  1. That looks yum! We were just thinking about making some chocolate chip cookies for my niece who just broke her arm (in two places) and maybe we'll try your recipe.

  2. Alyssa these look so yummy. I would like to share it on my blog and will give you credit. Thanks for sharing and can't wait to try them, or my daughter who loves to back cookies. Chocolate chip cookies are her absolute favorite!
