This Dominique Ansel Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe is perfect for any occasion! These soft and chewy cookies are dotted with salty chunks of dark chocolate. They’re not excessively sweet and are very easy to make.

I’m no Dominique Ansel himself, but I’ve been lucky enough to try his Timbale Chocolates, a Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe he created to celebrate his new bakery on Bleecker Street.
Like many people, when I heard that his new bakery was opening in New York City, I knew I had to go.
How To Make Dominique Ansel Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe?
- Prepare Tiem: 25 minutes
- Bake Tiem: 15-20 minutes
- Total Time: 45 min
- Serving Size: 25-30
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 oz bittersweet
- chocolate, chopped
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter, and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in cocoa powder and vanilla extract, then beat until well combined.
Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until well combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the chocolate chunks with a wooden spoon. The cookie dough will be slightly sticky, so use enough flour on your hands to shape it into balls thoroughly.
Using a medium-sized ice cream scoop, scoop out cookie dough approximately 2 inches apart, flatten each ball of dough thickly with your hand, then bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown at the edges.
Remove the cookie tray from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to the cooling rack.
- If you are short on time, you can skip the baking soda and make a softer, less chewy cookie by substituting 1 tsp baking powder.
- You can substitute any chocolate chips or chunks into this recipe. I like to use bittersweet chocolate chunks because they add an extra punch of bitterness to offset the cookie dough’s sweetness.
- For extra flavor, you can also add some other spices like ground cloves, cinnamon, or allspice.
- If you use an electric stand mixer, ensure the paddle attachment is not plugged in. Otherwise, it will over-beat the dough and make them flat like pancakes.
- These cookies keep very well in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
