Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies! What is it about a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie stuffed with decadent, rich, melted chocolate that makes it so irresistible?? Especially when topped with vanilla ice cream. These are one of Kev’s favorite homemade treats, and he usually asks me to make them at least once a week. They are so simple to whip up, and such a treat! Let’s make some right now :)

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

All you really need for these fabulous cookies is your favorite cookie dough and a bag of chocolate chips. My favorite cookie dough just happens to be Picky Palate’s, and it works perfectly for this recipe, but you could just as easily use a store-bought mix or even refrigerated cookie dough. Slice and bake cookie dough would be so simple here! But my heart will always belong to Picky Palate’s cookie dough. It absolutely can’t be beat in flavor and chewiness!

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Since these cookies are absolutely gushing with delicious rich chocolate, my favorite chocolate chips for this recipe are the Hersey’s Milk Chocolate chips. I did a side by side taste test with these and a few of the other milk chocolate chips available in my grocery store, and these by far had the most prominent rich chocolate flavor. Next time you’re at the store, grab a couple of bags and have a chocolate chip taste testing of your own! They’re all good, so you definitely won’t have a problem using them up — you really can’t go wrong with milk chocolate :)

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Now let’s make some chocolate lava cookies! Using half the cookie dough, grab a 1.5-2 tbsp scoop of dough (I used a Pampered Chef Medium Scoop for this) and flatten it out a bit.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Place the flattened cookie dough in the bottom of a well-greased standard sized muffin tin. Now depending on how much cookie dough you eat (in my case, I think it’s an abnormally high amount), you’ll have enough for 10 or 11 cookies. I start with 10, and add the 11th later if I have enough dough leftover.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Now for our gooey, rich milk chocolate filling. Place 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips in a Ziploc bag, and seal shut.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Lay the Ziploc bag flat in the microwave, spreading out the chocolate chips in a single layer. Microwave for 30 seconds. Remove bag and flip, microwaving for an additional 10-15 seconds until all the chips are softened.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Cut a small tip off the Ziploc bag and layer over the cookies. If you have any leftover chocolate, save it — I’ll show you what to do with it in a minute.

Heaven help me.

Scoop and flatten the remaining dough, and place on top of your lava cookies.

If you’ve got enough dough leftover, you can make one more cookie… or eat it as is! Your choice! :)

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Bake these in a 350 degree F oven for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are just browned. As soon as they come out of the oven, you may want to run a knife around the edges to make for easy removing later. Cool completely before removing from the tin, running a knife around the edge to help loosen.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Now here’s how I like my cookies. Cooled, soft, and so perfectly chewy. I could eat about a million and a half of these.

But here’s how Kevin likes his cookies.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Warmed in the microwave for 10 seconds, topped with vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with chocolate sauce. You can use any leftover melted chocolate here!

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups (210 grams) all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 (11.5 oz) bag milk chocolate chips (I prefer Hersheys)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a standard size muffin tin with cooking spray. Place 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a Ziploc bag, and seal shut. Lay the Ziploc bag flat in the microwave, spreading out the chocolate chips in a single layer. Microwave for 30 seconds. Remove bag and flip, microwaving for an additional 10-15 seconds until all the chips are softened. Set aside to cool.

2. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well combined. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to the wet ingredients and beat on low speed until just combined. Add the remaining chocolate chips (1 cup) and stir to combine.

3. Using half the cookie dough, scoop 1.5-2 tbsp of dough, flatten it out a bit, and place in the bottom of the muffin tin. Repeat for a total of 10 cookies. Cut a small tip in the corner of the Ziploc bag, and gently squeeze a layer of chocolate over the cookie. Scoop and flatten the remaining dough and place on top of the chocolate layer. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are just browned. As soon as they come out of the oven, run a knife around the edges to make for easy removing later. Cool completely before removing from the muffin tin, running a knife around the edge to help loosen.

These are good as mini muffins, too! Try baking at 350 for 9 mins. Enjoy!

Amanda they look soooo good! I love Jenny’s dough, too. It gives great results and I love that you made these in a muffin tin. Last week I made some deep dish chocolate chip cookies in my whoopie pie pans but they were “single layer”. Love that you doubled yours up, with that hot fudge sauce in the middle. Swoon!

Please don’t think you can’t enjoy amazing treats like this in a dairy-free way! My son has life-threatening food allergies to dairy, peanut, and egg and I have not found a dessert yet that I can’t replicate or imitate in a way that is both safe for him and yummy for everyone (no one even notices they’re vegan unless I tell them). There are delicious dairy-free chocolate chips as well as dairy-free buttery spreads suitable for baking. Oh yea, even delicious non-dairy ice creams out there to top it off. I will definitely be making a dairy-free version of these ASAP.

Talk about over the top…this is it certainly. My daughter is in her 20’s and would take this over a birthday cake any day.

I do have one concern though…you refer to a cookie dough by another blogger. You mean the same recipe I’ve used for years? That’s a pretty standard recipe, I don’t see how it could actually be attributed to anyone; way too generic in my book.

Julie B. February 9, 2012 at 3:07 pm

put chips in a metal bowl that fits inside ( but not to bottom of) one of your pots. fill bottom of pot– up the sides of the bowl a bit– with water. heat over med high, stirring constantly. best if the bowl has a lip to hold it up on the edge of the pot.
this is otherwise known as (& sold at a high price as a set in stores as ) a double boiler.
the trick is to heat the water in the pot so it melts the choc in the bowl– w/o getting any water in the choc, or boiling pot dry.

These look SO good! I can’t wait to make them. Question though, a 10 oz bag of chocolate chips is equal to 1 and 1/4 cups I believe. So if we use 1/2 cup for the molten lava center, we would have 3/4 cup remaining for the dough, right? It says 1 cup will be left over in the directions, so I wanted to clarify just in case that was an error :)

Reply

Amanda February 9, 2012 at 12:05 pm

You’re right, Mimi! The Hershey’s milk chocolate bags are actually 11.5 oz, not 10 oz. I’ll change that right now! :) For me it worked out just right — 1/2 cups for the molten lava center and just a tad more than 1 cup leftover for the cookies. :)

This looks amazing! However, I’d like to recommend melting that chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave. Plastic bags leach plastics into food, especially anything acidic or fatty (chocolate). Nobody wants to eat plastic, especially since it also makes it more likely that those scrumptious goodies will stick firmly to your middle.
I can’t wait to give these a try!

Hi! These were so delicious!! I only had a small problem with the dough being very…crumbly (?) when I took them out of the oven. I followed the recipe exactly and don’t understand what I did wrong. Do you have any tips on what to do different next time?

Thanks! I love your blog!!

Angela them and was not nearly as happy as I had hoped. I was hoping for more of a oozing lava cake by it wasn’t gooey enough for me, actually it wasn’t gooey at all. Not sure if I overcooked them but I followed the recipe perfectly. I won’t make them again, but if I did I’d use semi-sweet chips and more chocolate for the middles. On the other hand, as a cookie, they were very good.

Laura April 12, 2013 at 11:32 pm

It looks like they actually added more melted/gooey-fied chocolate after the baking process. I’ve purchased a couple of pre-made lava cakes before in the store, and they have an extra packet for the gooeyness that you add while you heat it up. Hope you would try these again sometime!
