ISO Chewy Chocolate Cookie Recipe

HELP!! I lost my recipe for chewy chocolate cookies that uses Hershey's Cocoa Powder, NOT chocolate squares. It's Mom's favorite cookie recipe, and I want to make them for her as a surprise.

Ok, I'm not sure exactly if this is the one you're looking for, but this is an idea:

Chewy Chocolate-Cinnamon Cookies

  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Beat butter until creamy. Add brown sugar and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar; beat until blended. Add egg, baking soda, corn syrup and vanilla; beat well.

3. Stir together flour and cocoa; beat into butter mixture. If batter becomes too stiff, use wooden spoon to stir in remaining flour. Cover; refrigerate about 30 minutes, if necessary, until batter is firm enough to shape. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Combine 1/4 cup granulated sugar and cinnamon; roll balls in mixture. Place balls 2-inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.

4. Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until cookies are set and tops are cracked. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. 40 cookies.

or this one, perhaps?

Chocolate Drop Sugar Cookies

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk or sour milk*
  • Additional sugar
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet.

2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat until fluffy. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add alternately with buttermilk to butter mixture. Using ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop dough about 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet.

3. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until cookie springs back when touched lightly in center. While cookies are on cookie sheet, sprinkle lightly with additional sugar. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 1 dozen cookies.

* To sour milk: Use 1 teaspoon white vinegar plus milk to equal 1/3 cup.

If its neither of those...I suggest going to the Hersheys.com website and searching for it. Hopefully it'll be there.

I am rather satisfied with Alton Brown's cookie recipe dubbed "The Chewy."

It can be found on the Food Network's site:

Hershey's Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Phantomtigger, here is the recipe I think you are looking for. Sorry it's so late. I hope you can still use it. I've also made these for many years and love this recipe too. I alternate between peanut butter chips/chocolate chips and the special edition raspberry chunks by Hershey's.

REESE'S Chewy Chocolate Cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips
1. Heat oven to 350F. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.

2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling.) Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4-1/2 dozen cookies.

PAN RECIPE: Spread batter in greased 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350F 20 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack; cut into bars. About 4 dozen bars.

ICE CREAM SANDWICHES: Prepare CHEWY CHOCOLATE COOKIES as directed; cool. Press small scoop of vanilla ice cream between flat sides of cookies. Wrap and freeze.

-- Increase flour to 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons.
-- Decrease baking soda to 3/4 teaspoon.
-- Decrease sugar to 1-2/3 cups.
-- Add 2 teaspoons water with flour mixture.
-- Bake at 350F, 7 to 8 minutes. Yield increases to about 6 dozen.
To Me, Baking & Cooking Are Soooooooooooooo Theraputic

This is my mothers TNT recipe...enjoy

Joans 3 C cookie delight (chewy chocolate cookie)

1 1/4 cup softened butter (unsalted)
2 cup sugar (extra fine)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla (pure extract, not substitute)
2 cup flour
3/4 cup Hershey cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cup chocolate chips (only Tollhouse)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. In separate bowl, mix thoroughly flour, cocoa, soda and salt. Add both mixtures together and mix thoroughly. Add chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake until done - do not overbake. Cookies will flatten when removed from oven and are chewy.
