Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies RecipeI admit, chocolate chip cookies are my all-time favorite cookies in the world and I could seriously eat them every day! When it comes to cookies, I like mine soft, chewy and filled with chocolate goodness!

I make a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies every month and I try to vary the recipe, so that we don’t get bored with them. Sometimes I switch up the flavor of the chocolates, add in some peanut butter into the batter, toss in some chopped nuts, etc.

Last week I used the Ghirardelli recipe that you can find on the back of the bag of packaged semi-sweet chocolate chips. They’re one of my favorite brands! The recipe will make approximately 4 dozen cookies.

    I can’t tink Ghiradelli without thinking about a fantastic trip we made to San Francisco years ago. They do make the best chocolate and I know those cookies would be delicious.

  2. I make cookies from scratch frequently and chocolate chip ones are my family’s favorite. I like trying different recipes for them for some variation and like the looks of the recipe here. I usually use the semi sweet but occasionally use the dark chocolate.
