These unusual chocolate chunk cookies are inside-out because they're chocolate cookies with white chocolate chunks. My family just loves them. They're soft, moist, rich, filled with delicious dark cocoa, and studded with white chocolate chuncks. Once baked, they emerge from the oven soft, warm, and oozing in comfort...I'm forced to fend off drooling family member to allow these cookies to cool.


1 3/4 cup Unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups Dutch processed cocoa powder
2 teaspoons Baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter; (2 1/2 sticks), softened to room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar; packed
1 1/4 cups Granulated sugar
2 large Eggs; at room temperature
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
10 ounces solid white chocolate; (or white chocolate chips), broken into 1/4-inch chunks

Original recipe makes 5



Position oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets, or alternatively, line sheets with either parchment paper* or silicon baking pads* (e.g., Silpad). Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In bowl of standing mixer fitted with paddle attachment (or an electric mixer, or by hand), beat butter with brown and granulated sugars at medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes (or 5-6 minutes by hand). Reduce speed to medium-low and add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until they are well incorporated; beat in vanilla extract. Reduce speed to lowest setting; gradually add in the sifted dry ingredients, scraping sides of mixing bowl as often as necessary with rubber spatula and beating until well incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate chips/chunks with a rubber spatula.

Using 1 heaping tablespoon batter per cookie, drop cookies 2-inches apart, in staggered rows** of 3-2-3-2-3, on prepared baking sheets.

Bake on the middle shelf of a 350 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are puffed and still slightly soft to the touch--do not overbake! Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow cookies to cool and set for 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to racks to cool completely. If you used parchment paper, slide the entire sheet off the tray directly onto the cooling racks. Meanwhile, you can re-use the cookie sheet immediately for baking the next batch.

Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Makes about 60 cookies.

*Note: Parchment paper (or silicon baking pad) is not a necessity but does make for easy cookie removal and cleanup. If using parchment, remove baking sheets from oven and immediately slide cookies on parchment directly onto cooling racks.

**Note: By staggering the rows of cookie batter, it's easy to fit 13 cookies (2-inches apart) on a single large cookie sheet.


Since the cookie batter is brown to begin with, you won't be able to use their toasty color as a visual indication of doneness. To avoid overcooking, remove the cookies from the oven as soon as they puff up and are still slightly soft to the touch. The cookies will set as they cool, but should remain pliable rather than hard or crunchy.

I have to agree with my family, these are great cookies, but I'm no big fan of white chocolate. I much prefer the real deal...real soul-sustaining chocolate, so I like to substitute regular chocolate chips for the white chocolate and call them double chocolate cookies or use peanut butter chips for another scrumptious variation.

PERFECTION!! made these many time and everybody loves them. i let them settle in fridge for a few minutes to let batter settle n thicken a little.

I only got about 31 cookies out of this...recipe says 60. Maybe my tbsps are WAY too heaping. :-) Since this recipe has a LOT of butter, I used whole wheat flower and a tad less sugar than called for. Turned out delicious! Would also be good with peanut butter chips rather than white chocolate.

Yummy! Try not to overbake as they do get crispy easily. I added semisweet choc chips for even more chocolate flavor, so good!
