Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies {with DARK brown sugar}

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies {with DARK brown sugar} from @whatchamakinnow

I think I may start a personal quest. A quest to make any chocolate chip cookie recipe that I find, and document how one differs from the other. Isn't that a splendid idea? Some recipes have more butter, less sugar, baking powder, shortening, and so on. This recipe uses DARK brown sugar instead of light brown sugar.

The result? They are delicious! The dark brown sugar means there is more molasses in the sugar making a more flavorful cookie. The texture is really no different and they bake up just like other cookies.

Give them a try! Your friends and family will thank you, I promise. :)

  1. I think baking all the different choc chip recipes sounds like a great idea! Using dark brown sugar is awesome in recipes...makes things so much chewier!

  2. What a fun idea! looks like you're off to a pretty good start!

  3. I love that you used dark brown sugar! I don't ever think to do that, but I imagine it tastes wonderful!

  4. How light can chocolate chip cookies be?

  5. I tried this recipe with 13 minutes baking time, and it's the softest cookies i've made! I've been searching hard for a good chewy cookies recipe, and i'm glad i found yours! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe :)

  6. Tried making these cookies and they are good except there is too much salt for my taste. If I were to make them again I would just use 1/4 tsp of salt or just a pinch because the saltiness is a bit overwhelming.
