100 Layer Chocolate Chip Cookies

What exactly is a 100-layer cookie? It is basically a Double Chocolate Chip cookie. But the magic happens when you roll the cookie dough layers flat and then stack them on top of itself and rolling it out again. And again. And again. You don’t technically need to repeat that 100 times, although you could if you happen to have little helpers in the kitchen who each want a turn!

These cookies are absolutely perfect. Not only are they perfect, they are perfectly adaptable. It’s one easy recipe that lends itself to any cookie I can dream up!

Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

The beginning of the school year is definitely a bitter-sweet time in our home. While I love the school that my kids’ go to and absolutely love the hearts of each of their teachers, I just miss them terribly when they are gone for the day.

When they burst through the door after school they are often thinking about homework or getting ready for after-school activities or any chores that they need to do.

But some days we do something different. We drop everything and just bake together. Someone picks the flavor and then we all get busy putting together their creation!

Easy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


I can change it anyway the kids want… adding sprinkles or butterscotch chips or marshmallow topping!

This 100 Layer Chocolate Chocolate Cookie was my oldest son’s creation.

He’s kind of a genius. 🙂Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies


You will never want to use another Chocolate Cookie recipe!

My kids love everything about these cookies. I mean everything.

They love that they get to throw chocolate morsels on top of dough. The messier, the better!

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

They love that they get to use a rolling pin, which is basically the most sought-after tool for my kids to use in the kitchen. They consider it the highest possible honor when baking. 😉

They love rolling the cookie dough layers flat and then stacking on top of itself and rolling it out again. This recipe is so versatile that I can give all five kids a turn at rolling!

They love that they can see double chocolate when they bite into their cookie.

They love that they eat them just after they have cooled a bit, but are still hot enough for the chocolate to melt all over their sweet little fingers.

And I love seeing them smile.

Author: Amanda Rettke
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks, 226g) butter softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (330g) all-purpose flour sifted
  • 1/2 cup (55g) cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups chocolate morsels Can use a much as 3 cups
  1. Mix brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, egg, egg yolk and vanilla in a large bowl until well mixed. Stir in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and baking soda until blended (dough will be soft and creamy).
  2. Divide dough into three equal portions. Wrap each portion with plastic wrap and transfer to refrigerator; let chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Unwrap the chilled dough and place on a lightly floured work surface. (I dusted my surface with cocoa powder) Roll out to about 1/2-1 inch thick.

  4. Sprinkle with half the chocolate morsels on top of the first portion of chilled dough. Roll out the second dough ball and then set on top.

  5. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate and top and then set the final portion of dough on top of that.
  6. Gently flatten with rolling pin and try to create a square with the cookie dough. You can fold the dough over itself and roll the cookies again if desired. These cookies do not rise very much so the make sure your dough is the desired thickness of the final cookie before moving on to the next step.

  7. Cut dough into 2-inch squares with a sharp knife and set on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper about an inch apart. (Cookies do not spread a great deal)

  8. Re-roll any leftover batter. You can stack it on itself to keep creating layers of chocolate chip cookie dough.
  9. Bake at 350°F for 11-14 minutes. (The center should not appear wet)

  10. Cool a couple minutes on baking sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    I am guessing these will turn out as awesome with real butter vs margarine (don’t/won’t use/buy it). I will make these on Saturday or Sunday!

    • Irene says:

      I wondered the same thing. If/when you try it with butter please let us know. I may do the same this weekend and I’ll let you know how it works 🙂

      • Donna McBroom-Theriot says:

        Have you tried the recipe with butter? I only use butter as well but wanted to try the recipe. Thanks!

  • Kim says:

    These look so good! I love that you layered the chips in, instead of just mixing them into the dough. I bet it would be fantastic with big chocolate chunks instead of the chips!

    • Amanda says:

      YES!! I have done that and LOVED it. (Probably even more than the chips!)

  • Yvonne White says:

  • Beverly says:

    I made these cookies to the “T”. The rolling out of the dough wasn’t as easy as your video showed.
    I need to get taste them to decide if it’s worth to make again. Next time i would use 1/2 to 3/4 cup of chocolate chips per layer. Maybe that will help the rolling out of the dough.

  • Yara says:

    Hello. Has anyone tried these with m&ms or butterscotch chips? Milk or darker chocolate recommended?

  • Mary ELLEN Harte says:

    This looks pretty much like a cookie morphing into a chocolate chip brownie 😉 – the brownie is probably easier to assemble, esp when you can melt the cooking chocolate in a microwave with the butter…
