These Double Chocolate Chip cookies are chewy and just amazing tasting.  If you are a chocolate Hizzoner's Double Chocolate Chip Cookiesfreak like I am you will want to make these and keep them handy at all times.

You can make these cookies either chewey or more crisp by varying the baking time.  Bake a bit longer for a crisper cookie.  Personally, I like them very soft.

2 cups butter blend (or use real butter)
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
3 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
5 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips.
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips and 4 tablespoons water

1.  In your mixer bowl put eggs, sugars,  and butter.    Beat until creamy.

2.  Stop mixer and add salt and  baking soda.    Beat again until creamy.

Put 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips in a 4 cup glass measuring cup or glass bowl with the 4 tablespoons of water and put in your microwave for a couple of minutes to melt the chocolate chips.  Microwave just long enough for the chips to melt, not boil or cook.

3.  Add the melted chocolate chips to your batter and beat till creamy.

4.  With mixer running on lowest speed, add flour in a little at a time until all of it is incorporated.

5.  Add the other 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and beat till just incorporated.

Dough should be somewhat soft enough to be tacky but not really  sticky.

Use a large cookie scoop to measure.    Use a good heavy half sheet pan or the heaviest cookie sheet you have to bake cookies.   You can use pan spray or sil-pat or parchment paper, but if your cookie sheet is not heavy enough you will have cookies who have too-dark bottoms and not-done tops.

Roll each cookie into a ball and place about 2 inches apart on your baking sheet and pat down a bit.    Cookies will spread.

These cookies need to be baked in the upper third of your oven in order for them to bake evenly.  If you try to bake them on the middle or lower rack the bottoms will burn and the tops will be too's because of all the chocolate.

Bake at 350 for 13 minutes in a convection oven.   If your oven is not a convection oven, check after
13 minutes for doneness.
