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.

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!

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

  7. keithgarrick says:

    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

  8. Alta says:

    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! :)

  12. mumay says:

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

  13. 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!

  14. 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. :)

  15. Cassi says:

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

  16. jenn says:

    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. =)

  17. Natalie says:

    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!

  18. 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.

  19. Katie says:

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

  20. Pat Winship says:

    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.

  21. tee says:

    ooh myyy.

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

  22. jasmine says:

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

  23. Joanne says:

    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.

  24. Kathy says:

    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.

  25. judy says:

    Those look really good. Thanks for the recipe. I can’t wait to make these cookies!

  26. katy says:

  27. keith says:

    Oh my!! That looks heavenly.. I wish i could taste one.

  30. Monica says:

    These look amazing. I’m feeling the need to bake and these just might be the ticket.

  31. so…at what point does it stop being a cookie with chocolate and start being a chocolate with cookie? haha. those looks fat out awesome.

  32. Jaci says:

    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.

  33. Steph says:

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

  34. Fabulous photos! I’m ‘dying’ for these chocolate chip cookies. Maybe it’s not too late to whip some up, but I don’t think they’ll be as good!

  35. Robyn Fiedler says:

    These are the cookies I’ve been waiting for…
    they look AWESOME.

  36. alice says:

    Your pictures are stunning! Makes me want to grab the cookie in the photo and eat it.

  37. I like a little bit of cookie with my chocolate. These look completely delicious.

  38. StaciDL says:

    Holy Chocolate Chip 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!

  39. Donna says:

    Without a doubt, I am so making these.

  40. Melanie M. Cogdill says:

    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!

  41. 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!

  42. Janice says:

    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.

  43. deeba says:

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

  44. Jody says:

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

  45. 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.

  46. Michelle says:

    My tummy is now growling; those look so yummy!

  47. Aileen says:

    the words chocolate + overload –what can go wrong with that combination?

  48. Karen says:

    Yikes! Those look fantastic! I need something to bring to my daughter’s piano recital and this looks like just the ticket.

  49. Anyone who craves chocolate, in a non-bar form, needs to make your cookies. Less is more for some, but WE know the truth.
    Thanks for the recipe and congrats on your first giveaway.
