Tools to make the best monster chocolate chips

What makes these the best chocolate chip cookies? For one, these are huge cookies, like the size of your face big. They are also soft and chewy and go perfectly with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. 

Having these kitchen tools are helpful for making these large cookies

  • A large cookie sheet or possibly two baking sheets. The reason is because of their larger size, only a few cookies can fit at a time. 
  • A large cookie scoop. I have this one and it works great at keeping all the cookies a uniform size, which helps them to bake evenly. 
  • Parchment paper is a must. I use it for almost all of my baking. It helps to keep cookies from sticking to the pan and is also easy to clean up!

How to bake jumbo chocolate chip cookies

First, you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While this is heating up, grab a mixing bowl and your electric hand mixer and beat together your butter and shortening until nice and creamy. 

Gradually add sugars and beat until fluffy. Now, add your eggs and vanilla and mix completely.  

In a separate bowl, add together your dry ingredients and gradually add to the creamy butter mixture and stir until well blended. 

Stir in all the chocolate & caramel chips. You may want to use a sturdy wooden spoon for this as the batter will be quite thick and hard to stir. 

Drop by 1/4 cupfuls about 3″ apart (or 6 drops per sheet).

Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Let cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack (or dinner plate to keep extra soft).

How Do You Stop Cookies From Spreading?

The best way to stop cookies from spreading into a gooey mess on your pan is to chill the cookie dough really well before baking. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour and this should help solve that problem. 

Can You Freeze Monster Cookie Dough?

Yes! Freeze dough by scooping and dropping by cookie scoop on the cookie tray as if you are going to bake them. Instead, place the tray in the freezer for about an hour or until no longer sticky. 

Once frozen, place cookie mounds in a freezer bag. When you are ready to bake, take one or two mounds of dough or all pieces out of the freezer and bake. 

How Do You Tell if Cookie is Done?

You can check if these monster cookies are done baking by touching the edge with your finger or spatula. If the edges are firm, then they are done.
