Hooray, friends! It’s about time we indulged in some cookies, right? You’ve worked hard. You deserve it! So I’m sharing my favorite dark chocolate chunk cookies today!

Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

When I first got married, I remember being so excited to register for cookware and bakeware! Finally, I could choose new sets of kitchen items, swoon! I knew I wanted pretty items, but most importantly, ones that can perform “for life” (1st wedding anniversary all the way to 50th). Right? Enter Circulon and their cute iconic circle design! Take a look at why I love them below and the recipe for these amazing cookies!

Here’s why their cookware and bakeware is worth it!

  • That fun circle design? It actually helps promote airflow and even baking!
  • Dishwasher safe!
  • Safe for metal utensils aka easy clean-up!
  • The cookware construction is twice as hard as stainless steel!
  • Oven safe to 400°F!

Back to these cookies! They’re like big, fat bakery cookies that are super chewy in the center and loaded with chunks of dark chocolate! You can leave the touch of sea salt on top off if you prefer your cookies without it. Or walk on the wild side and add that salt!
