One of my favorite memories from when I was a kid is baking cookies with my grandma. She always had the best tips and tricks for the best most chewy cookies on the planet. One of her tricks was using a touch of Karo® Corn Syrup to all her cookie recipes to create cookies that were the perfect combination of soft and chewy. Everyone she would make them for would rave about them. With the holidays quickly approaching I am taking a page out of Grammy’s book and created these incredible Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with the help of Karo® Corn Syrup. These tasty cookies are perfect for the Christmas cookie season or just the perfect Sunday treat to make with your family. Let’s get into the chewiest cookie recipe on the planet!

What You Will Need To Make Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

The kitchen tools you will need to make chewy chocolate chip cookies are:

  • A Couple of Large Bowls- I use one bowl for the dry ingredients, then a separate large bowl to combine everything together.
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons- These are important to make sure all of your ingredients are properly measured to yield the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookies.
  • A Large Spoon or Rubber Spatula- Either is fine, this is just used to mix all the ingredients together.
  • Parchment Paper or Cooking Spray- Gotta make sure those awesome chocolate cookies don’t stick!
  • One or Two Cookie Sheets- You can use one standard size cookie sheet and bake the chocolate chip cookies in two batches, or use two sheets and bake them all at once on separate racks. If you bake the chocolate cookies all at once make sure you rotate the pans halfway through.

The ingredients you will need for this double chocolate chip cookie recipe are:

  • Karo® Corn Syrup- This is the KEY ingredient that results in these double chocolate chip cookies coming out perfectly soft and chewy. Karo® Corn Syrup has been around for over 100 years and has been a trusted baking staple for generations in my family, just ask my grandma! Trust me on this people, Karo® Corn Syrup has so many more uses in the kitchen than just your run-of-the-mill pecan pie.
  • All Purpose Flour- Gluten-free flour could be substituted if needed.
  • Baking Soda- No baking powder for this chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe, stick with the baking soda. If you swap them the texture of the cookie will change.
  • Sea Salt
  • Brown Sugar and Granulated White Sugar- I really love combining both white sugar and brown sugar in my chocolate chip cookie recipes. You could leave out the white sugar if you wish and just substitute in additional brown sugar. I do not recommend leaving out the brown sugar in these cookies. The brown sugar gives these chocolate chip cookies a chewy texture in addition to the Karo® Corn Syrup.
  • Unsalted Butter (Melted)- I do not recommend using salted butter for this cookie recipe.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder- This chocolate chip cookie recipe uses cocoa powder to create the awesome chocolate flavor. I like to use regular unsweetened cocoa powder, but for a more intense flavor you could use unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder.
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks- I really love using chocolate chunks for this chocolate chip cookie recipe, because you get big gooey bites of chocolate. I really like semi-sweet chocolate for this easy cookie recipe, but you could also try dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate. Also, if you do not want to use chunks of chocolate you could use regular chocolate chips or even mini chocolate chips for this chocolate chip cookie recipe.

How Do You Make Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These double chocolate chip cookies come together super quick, and are ready in about 20 minutes from start to finish. There is no chilling required for these chewy cookies, but the dough can be made ahead of time and baked up to 24 hours later. These cookies follow all the steps of your traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe, but the addition of the Karo® Corn Syrup takes this cookie recipe to the next (and chewiest) level! If you love this double chocolate chip cookie recipe, I encourage you to add a bit of Karo® Corn Syrup to all your cookie recipes for a super chewy finish!

Preparing Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  1. First, combine the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir/whisk to combine, then set them aside for later.
  2. In a separate large bowl combine the brown sugar, white sugar and melted butter. Next, stir until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
  3. In the same large bowl add the eggs, vanilla extract, and Karo® Corn Syrup and stir the cookie batter until smooth and combined.
  4. Next, add in the dry ingredients to the large bowl and stir until well combined. The batter will be thick and sticky. The dough will be similar to brownie batter.
  5. Finally, add the chocolate chunks to the chocolate cookie batter and stir until the chocolate chunks are well distributed.

Baking the Chewiest Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Once you have the cookie dough prepared, spray a cookie sheet (or two) with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  2. Take a heaping tablespoon of the cookie dough and place it on the cookie sheet. I find that twelve cookies fit great on each sheet. Also, you can place additional chocolate chunks on each heap of cookie dough for some extra chocolaty-ness.
  3. Place the filled cookie sheet on the center rack and bake for 9-11 minutes at 350 degrees F. The cookies will spread and be firm on the bottom but still soft and chewy on the outside and center.
  4. Once the cookies are baked, transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy warm, or store leftovers for up to 2 weeks.

Delicious Cookie Traditions!

With the holidays approaching I find myself reminiscing more and more about baking with my grandma as a child. I have so many wonderful memories of spending time baking so many yummy treats with my grandma. I use to love helping my grandma measure ingredients, stir the cookie dough, and of course getting a taste of the cookie dough. One of my favorite things about being a mom is getting to pass these traditions down to my son. He loves getting to help me cook, and of course getting to eat the finished double chocolate chip cookies! 

I cannot wait until Christmas when we go to visit my grandma and we can all bake these chewy chocolate chip cookies together. I love how something as simple as a chocolate chip cookie can bring people together and create traditions that get passed down for generations. Whether I am making chocolate chip cookies, a pie or brownies I know Karo® Corn Syrup will be there to enhance the recipe and keep the sweet traditions going!

Leftover Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Storage Options

These chewy double chocolate chip cookies are super tasty leftover. Unlike a lot of cookie recipes that get hard after a day the Karo® Corn Syrup helps the chocolate cookies stay soft and chewy for days. For best results, I suggest storing the double chocolate chip cookies in an airtight container or storage bag at room temperature. When stored at room temperature the chewy chocolate chip cookies will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks. The chocolate chip cookies are at their best within the first week. You can enjoy the cookies at room temperature, or warm them in the microwave for 10 seconds and enjoy them warm.

Can the chocolate chip cookie dough be made ahead of time?

Yes, the dough for these Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies can be made ahead of time. You can make the dough up to 24 hours ahead of time and store the cookie dough in the fridge covered. You can follow the recipe instructions exactly then leave the dough in the large bowl in the fridge. When you are ready to bake the cookies, let the dough come to room temperature then continue to follow the recipe instructions. I love that this chewy chocolate cookie recipe can be made ahead of time, or made on the fly with no chilling required.

Can these Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies be frozen?

I do not recommend freezing the prepared chewy double chocolate chip cookie dough. The dough is very sticky and does not roll well. This is great for yielding a super chewy and soft finished texture, but not great for freezing. Of course, you can make the cookie dough ahead of time and bake the cookies up to a day later. Unfortunately, freezing the dough would result in a mess.

Course: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: chewy double chocolate chip cookies, easy chocolate cookie recipe, homemade chewy chocolate chip cookies
Servings: 24 Cookies
Calories: 189kcal


  • 1 2/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar Packed
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated White Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter Melted
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Karo® Corn Syrup
  • 2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks


  • Combine flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, white sugar and melted butter. Stir the mixture until just combined and no chunks of brown sugar remain. In the same bowl add the eggs, vanilla extract, Karo® Corn Syrup and stir until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the large bowl and stir until combined. The dough will be sticky and the consistency in-between brownie batter and cookie dough. Stir in the chocolate chunks until evenly distributed.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take a heaping tablespoon of the cookie dough and place it on the prepared baking sheet. I like to do 12 cookies per baking sheet leaving about 2 inches in between each ball of cookie dough. You can use one sheet and cook two batches of cookies, or use two baking sheets and bake them on separate racks.
  • Once the sheet(s) is filled, place in the oven at 350 degrees F for 9-11 minutes. The cookies will be soft on the tops still, but firm on the bottom when finished. Remove the baked cookies from the sheet and place on a cooling rack. Enjoy warm or store leftovers for up to 2 weeks.
