Mason Jar Cookie Recipes: Chewy Chocolate Cookies with Gooey Chocolate Chips
This chocolate cookie recipe in a jar makes the best chocolate chocolate chip cookies. A friend of mine even said they're better than traditional chocolate chip cookies (and I always make extra of this particular cookie mix because my own family asks for it often)!
This cookie mix makes around 24 "all-chocolate" chewy chocolate chip cookies that turn out brown, buttery and chocolaty with pockets of gooey melted chocolate throughout.
The surprising thing about these treats is that they're not over the top chocolaty, they're just right.
When picking up ingredients for this chocolate cookie recipe (sure to satisfy any chocolate craving imaginable) be sure to use semi sweet chocolate chips not milk chocolate.

Cookie Mix Ingredients:
*Variation: You can substitute white chocolate chips, butterscotch or toffee in place of bittersweet but be prepared for a slightly sweeter cookie. After careful testing (entirely for my readers, not at all for myself :-) ) I've determined that bittersweet chocolate chips seam to make the best tasting chocolate cookies.
Note: You can also put the brown sugar in followed by the chocolate chips in order to pack as many chips as possible. However, I choose to add brown sugar last since the top layer often gets covered up by fabric or decoration and the chocolate chips make a scrumptious looking layer?

Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
Preheat oven to 375° F. Beat together 3/4 cup softened butter, 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add Cookie Mix and blend well. Break up and blend any clumps of mix. Drop tablespoon sized rounds of dough onto un greased baking sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes. Makes around 24 cookies.
For a simple presentation, place a 7 inch round of fabric over the top. Secure with rubber band. Wrap raffia or ribbon around cloth, covering up the rubber band and tie in bow. Use raffia to attach a wooden spoon if desired. Be sure to attach the chocolate cookie recipe for how to use the cookie mix.
Gift Basket Option: To make this into a cute homemade gift basket, add a cookie jar of some sort, a wooden spoon and matching oven mitts. The cookie jar will come in handy since these are rich cookies not to be eaten all at once.
