Isn’t it nice to say that you only ate one cookie? Well, you can get away with that with this recipe! Yes, it’s a giant cookie, but you don’t have to mention that part. Made with chocolate chunks, this Giant Cookie is enough to share, but only if you really want to! Don’t worry…these giant cookies are only about 7 inches in diameter, not 107 feet like the world’s biggest cookie😯!

Can I Make the Dough Ahead of Time?

Yes! This recipe does make two giant cookies, so you can make one and store the other ball of dough in the refrigerator. Simply wrap it up in plastic wrap to store in your refrigerator for up to 3 days to bake later. Be sure to label and date the dough, as well as write the baking instructions so it’s easy to pop in the oven when you are ready for your next giant cookie fix!

Giant Cookie

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
This soft and chewy giant cookie is loaded with chocolate chunks and is ready in about 30 minutes!


  • 1 cup (2 sticks / 227 g) butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (200 g) brown sugar
  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups (375 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.
  • Add vanilla and eggs and stir to combine
  • Add baking soda, salt, and flour and stir until everything is incorporated.
  • Fold in chocolate chunks.
  • Divide dough in half and form into a ball. Press down slightly in the center of the ball to create raised outer edges. (This will prevent the cookie from swelling up and deflating as it cools.)
  • Set one of the balls of dough into the lined baking dish, baking one giant cookie at a time.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. The edges do need to be golden brown; if they are not that means the center is still uncooked.

  1. I think I should have put it onto a floured surface to make into a ball. It took about 40 min to get the crispness I wanted, but the taste soooooo good. Not sure I want to share it.

  2. This cookie turned out nicely to look at but the 2 tsp of baking soda makes it too cake like and not dense and chewy like how I like cookies. Baked for 25 minutes and could have done less. The dough was not as dry as the video and very sticky like another user commented on. Ended up throwing it out.
