Make it Monday: Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m back! I had a wonderful College Tour trip with my Girl Scouts and it was so exciting to see them explore opportunities for their future.

A couple weeks ago, I was shopping at Williams-Sonoma when I came across a boxed chocolate chunk cookie mix from Bouchon Bakery. I LOVE Bouchon, so I decided to give them a try. I’m always looking for quick and easy baking mixes for those times I need to take dessert to a party or have something on hand when people come over.

Cookie ingredients

All the ingredients I needed were in the box except a stick of butter and one egg – easy! I gathered my supplies, preheated the oven, and I was ready to start.

Cookie mixed

The consistency seemed no different than chocolate chip cookies I usually make, but I loved that I didn’t have to measure anything – less dishes and less mess.

Cookie dough

There was less dough than what I usually end up with in my typical recipe, which I expected since I only needed one egg and one stick of butter.

Cookies on sheet pan

I used my dough scoop to get perfectly shaped dough balls that were all the same size. I don’t know what I ever did before this thing – it is definitely one of my favorite utensils in my kitchen.

Cookies Oven

The cookies baked for about 15 minutes in my oven (on 350 degrees), and they came out golden brown and smelled delicious.

Cookies Done!

I let them cool for about 10 minutes, then tried one and the chocolate on the inside was still melty and the cookie was so good! The chocolate actually stayed a melted consistency for a while, which I love.

Cookies in tupperware

The batch made 22 cookies that were about 1.5 inches in diameter. You could certainly use less dough and end up with more if you wanted. The cookies were really yummy and came together with prep and baking in about 30 minutes.

I would totally buy this cookie mix again to have on hand in a pinch (or for a random Monday night :)). I am also interested to try the variation using peanut butter listed on the recipe card. Williams-Sonoma has a ton of other baking mixes, and since this was a win, I’m excited to try some of those.

Party on!
