  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup mini-chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or use baking stone.
  • Melt butter in microwave. I put mine on the "melt butter" setting and it will be not all fully melted, but close enough. 
  • Using an electric mixer add granulated and light brown sugars to the butter. Mix until combined (about 1 minute). Add egg and vanilla and mix for a few seconds more.
  • Add salt, baking soda, and flour. Mix on low speed until combined. You will know when your dough is ready because it will pull slightly away from the sides. 
  • Fold in mini, semi-sweet, and dark chocolate chips into the dough. Do not use the electric mixer for this because it will tear up your chips. You want to be able to see the 3 different sizes.
  • With 2-inch scooper, add the dough to the cookie sheet or baking stone. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart from one another. Press down slightly with fingers to flatten.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes. Cookies are done when they are still puffy in the center and have a little gold coloring on the edges.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet or stone for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling racks or mouths. Enjoy!
