If you like a lot of goodies in your cookies, these Chewy Double Chocolatey Chip Pecan Cookies will fit the bill! Not only is there extra chocolate added into this recipe, there are also little bits of pecans too! The perfect cookie if you like a few ‘extras’.

I’ve been doing really well about my new year resolutions! The main goal I made this year is to give up soda….so far so good! I’ve even been to restaurants and just ordered water.

*gasp*

What have I become?

The whole limiting sugar thing is kind of difficult. Especially when I’ve been dreaming about these cookies for a few weeks now and only got around to making these now.

Soft and chewy warm cookies are my bff and nemesis. I love them, but I hate them. But mostly love them because they are just too unbearably delicious….especially fresh out of the oven.

I actually threw out the last 6 of these cookies because they were over 4 hours old aaaaand because I couldn’t stop eating them. That husband of mine would typically eat 17 of these lil dudes, but since he’s not home, I don’t know what I was thinking making a full and complete recipe.

Obviously, my thunder thighs were {large and} in charge of the entire baking situation.

What makes these cookies so special?

I use a combination of regular sized chocolate chips with mini ones so  every bite you take has a significant amount of chocolate in it. Never a bad thing in my book.

I also added in pecan pieces. I like the taste and slight crunch a pecan brings to soft and chewy cookies, so I added in a 1/2 cup.

I LOVED the finished cookie…so much so that I decided to blog about it immediately! {I made these yesterday, you guys.}

If you think you love the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, this one could definitely give you and it a run for its money. My only requirement is you need to eat these warm and fresh with milk. Doesn’t that just sound lovely right about now? I thought so….

Cookies for Breakfast!

I’ll keep you posted if I win said public office…based on the cookies for breakfast slogan.

  3. These look perfect. I love when they are gooey in the middle. And I always try to have both sizes of chocolate chips on hand. More chocolate = better cookie.
