Grab a glass of milk and enjoy some decadently rich chocolate cookie bars with gooey chocolate chips inside. These bars are easy to make using a bowl and spoon and can be in the oven in less than 15 minutes.
Chocolate lovers will celebrate when they take a bite of one of these double chocolate cookie bars. They have a robust chocolate flavor profile.
Not only are the bars made using cocoa powder and melted chocolate but they are loaded with chocolate chips too.
You can enjoy the cookies while they are still warm and they will have a fudgy brownie-like texture with gooey melted chocolate chips.
If you allow the cookies to cool, they will firm up and have a more cookie-like texture.
They are amazing either way and I know you will love how easy they are to make.
Let’s make double chocolate cookie bars.
- microwave-safe mixing bowl

- 8-inch square baking pan
- optional: non-stick tin foil or parchment paper
What chocolate to use to make these cookie bars?
The primary flavor component in these cookies is chocolate so be sure to use semi-sweet chocolate that you enjoy eating straight out of the package.
You can use chocolate bars or chocolate chips in this cookie bar recipe. If you use bars, be sure to finely chop the chocolate that will be melted and roughly chop the chocolate that will be mixed into the chocolate cookie dough.
This recipe also calls for cocoa powder to be mixed into the dough. It’s best to use either Dutch Processed Cocoa or my preference, Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa which is a blend of natural and Dutch cocoa. Both of these types of cocoa will add a richer more chocolatey flavor to your cookie bars than natural cocoa powder.
