LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since Ghirardelli is no longer making the Double Chocolate Chips, I don't have the recipe! There used to be a recipe on the bag of chips for either Double Chocolate Chip Cookies or Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were the best! If anyone still has a bag of these chips and can forward the recipe, I would greatly appreciate it!

Am I understanding correctly that the cookie itself is chocolate too? I just have the regular Ghirardelli chips in my refrigerator.

There's contact info for Ghirardelli below if nobody has the recipe.

Here is a link that might be useful: Ghirardelli

The cookie uses the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chips and cocoa to make the whole cookie chocolate - If you have a bag of the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chips, the recipe should be on the bag. Please forward if you have this recipe. Thanks.

All I found was the recipe for chocolate chip cookies but don't see why you couldn't just add 1/3-1/2c unsweetened cocoa to that recipe.
The recipe for the regular ones is on the website Ginger posted above.You might take a look at the Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookie recipe-it has melted chips in the dough and also expresso powder but am sure you could leave the expresso out if you wanted to.

Roselin's correct. If you'd like a good tried & true recipe, try this one & see if it's close to the Ghirardelli one:
CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (about 3 dozen)
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened (1/2 lb)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup[ granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBL milk
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour & baking soda. Set aside. Using a mixer, cream teh butter. Add the vanilla & sugars & beat until fluffy. Beat in the egg. At low speed, beat in the cocoa, then the milk. With a wooden spoon mix in the flour just until blended. Stir in the nuts & chocolate chips.
Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto nonstick or foil-lined cookie sheets. Bake 12-13 minutes. Remove from the oven & cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheets. Cool on a rack.~~Winning at the Table

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

lisbet: that's not it - thanks for the link - the one I used to have had cocoa in it, not melted chips. It didn't have nuts either. I emailed ninjaprincess, but haven't heard from her - if I do, I will be sure to post it - it's worth having!

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

The recipe that Ginger posted (and I just found the identical recipe in another source) has cocoa in it and you could always just leave the nuts out. Was there something else in them that you haven't mentioned? This recipe is also called "Double Chocolate Chip Cookies".

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ginger's posted recipe is probably the closest - I don't remember there being any milk in my recipe, and I think there were 2c. of chocolate chips....I'm remembering less and less as the months go by! :-)

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe that someone posted saying it was on the back of a bag of ghirardelli white chocolate chips. Maybe you can substitute the double chocolate chips for the white.

"This recipe was in the cookbook which came in a Ghirardelli gift basket. I believe its also on the back of their white chips. Not being a huge fan of white chips, I just used chocolate.

These are really good. Theyre not at all chewy, but I wouldnt call them cakey either. Theyre tender, bordering on fudgy, and puffy. The dough is basically a good transport system for the chocolate chips, so use really good chocolate chips. Oh, and Ghirardelli cocoa powder is really good."

Double Chocolate Cookies

1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups Ghirardelli premium unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups Ghirardelli classic white chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In bowl of electric mixer, beat butter with sugar at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs, beating at low speed until combined. Add vanilla. Add flour, unsweetened cocoa and baking powder to creamed mixture and fold until combined. Fold in chips. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Allow 3 inches between cookies. Bake at 300 degrees for 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from baking sheets. Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the recipe I have on the bag that I saved, for the same reason: most delicious cookies EVER! Not sure if it's exactly the same as the one you're remembering, but it's taken directly from a bag of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chips.

Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 bars (8oz) Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking bars, broken into 1" pieces
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup Ghirardelli double chocolate baking chips

Preheat oven to 350. Place semi-sweet chocolate in a large bowl in microwave oven for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove & stir. If not melted, return to microwave and repeat heating step, stirring every 30 seconds. When small lumps remain, remove and continue to stir to complete melting. Stir in sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Stir flour with baking powder; add to chocolate mixture, mixing well. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by 1/4 cup onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool 1 minute on baking sheet; remove to wire cooling racks. Makes 9 big cookies.

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just FYI: Ghirardelli didn't stop making the Double Chocolate Chips, they just tweaked the recipe and renamed them, and they weren't clear about that fact for a while. But now they mention it on their site, at the page for what are now called 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chips.

Apparently they didn't realize the potential for nationwide panic. I personally hyperventilated for a week until a friend set me straight. ;o)

I'm glad I peeked in here. Those recipes look wonderful.

Ghirardelli P.S.

My FYI needs its own FYI. I just looked again at the link I posted above. Ghirardelli should hire a proofreader. The text says Cacao, but the label on the bag says Cocoa.

RE: LOOKING for: Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

To Maureen me: I wrote to Ghirardelli - it's a different recipe; it's been awhile so I can't quite remember all the differences, but(and it's a big but for me!), the 60% Cocoa chips are double the size! I don't really want my chips to be that big!

To Anita: thanks for that recipe - It looks wonderful and I might try it, but it's still not exactly what I remember! The ones I made way back when didn't require melting of chocolate bars; dry cocoa was used....

I have finally decided that Ginger St Thomas' recipe above is the closest to what I remember. I do use a lot more chocolate chips than her recipe calls for....call me crazy! I use 2 cups instead of 6 oz (which is probably close to a cup).
