These passed every friend, neighbor, husband and child taste test imaginable. They have the quintessential CCC (that’s “chocolate chip cookie” for all my non-dessert fanatics out there) taste, but in better-than-before bar form.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Sticks with semisweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chunks and white chocolate chips
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 28 cookies

Ingredients 

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 1 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups chocolate chips, divided
  • Sea salt flakes, for topping (optional)

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9-inch metal baking pan with foil so that it hangs over on the two longer sides then grease the foil with cooking spray.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla extract and salt then add the eggs one at a time, beating between each addition.
  • Add the baking powder and flour and mix until combined then add 2 cups of chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan, smoothing it into an even layer. Top it with the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips.
  • Bake the cookies for about 30 minutes or until they are still slightly underdone in the center. Remove the pan from the oven, immediately sprinkle the cookies with sea salt (optional) and allow the cookies to cool completely in the pan.
  • Using the foil overhangs, lift the cookies out of the pan then slice them into sticks and serve.

Kelly's Notes:

  • I like a mix of semisweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chunks and white chocolate chips, but use whatever chocolate (or combination of chocolates!) you prefer.
  • The real key to chewy cookies is to underbake them then allow them to cool completely in the pan.

  1. I only had glass pan, had to trim about 3/4” around before cutting sticks. Seemed like such a waste. Sticks delicious!!
    Is this the reason for metal pan ?
    Any suggestions?
    Love ❤️ your recipes

    1. Hi Barbara! Because of the way glass transfers heat in the oven, it will bake both faster and darker than most metal pans so it’s important to check the food early and often when substituting a glass dish for a metal one. Hope this helps!

  2. HA HA ……….. SHOULD HAVE LOOKED A LITTLE CLOSER TO YOUR DETAILS. WOULD HAVE ANSWERED MY OWN QUESTION. YOU POSTED 28 COOKIES.

    HAVE GRANDSONS WAITING FOR THESE DELIGHTS !

  3. Chewy chocolate chip cookies are so good. Double batch. So much quicker than individual cookies. The hardest part was waiting for them to cool completely. Sheer torture! Gonna freeze some for Valentine’s day treats at school.

    1. Hi there! I haven’t tried this recipe in regular cookie form, but you could try baking them at 350F for 9 to 12 minutes!

  4. How do we feel about freezing these? I’d love to make these for a rehearsal dinner, but I really don’t want to be baking day of. Can I put the dough in a pan and freeze it, and then pop it in the oven the day I need them?

    1. Hi Ariadne! I’ve never tried baking this dough from the frozen state, but it’d definitely work! I’m just not sure of the bake time…

  5. 5 stars
    Really easy and delicious. My only question is that i cooked mine for 30 minutes and they are a beautiful golden brown but a little of the inside looks “underdone”. Is this because it’s a chewier cookie?

    1. SO glad you enjoyed it, Mo! Yes, it’s definitely a chewier cookie, but there will also be some carry-over cooking once you remove them from the oven. So make sure you let them cool completely in the pan. :)

    1. Yes, the recipe is correct as written. Bake the cookies for about 30 minutes or until they are still slightly underdone in the center.

    1. I’m so thrilled you’ve been enjoying the recipe, Lori! And I love that you are making them festive to match the season!

  6. 5 stars
    Hi Kelly! We enjoy your recipes very much! Question about this one…….not a big deal but in the ingredient list you call out for 2 1/4 cups of chocolate chips (divided) but the instructions only say to add 2 cups. Where does the remaining 1/4 cup come in?

  7. Question: What happens with the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips? Also, these look amazing. I’m excited to try them!

  8. Oh me oh my! These beauties are on my annual cookie list for giving. I’ll let you know; but they’re likely to be a success! Thank-you!
