Inside out cookies are a favorite around our house — they are the perfect combination of crispy on the outside but still soft and chewy on the inside. And… they’re really easy to make!
After getting a text message from a friend, asking why she couldn’t find my recipe for “Inside Out Cookies” on the blog, I knew it was time to officially add this family favorite to my virtual recipe box!
Apparently, my boys talk about these yummy cookies quite regularly at school, so a handful of parents have emailed or texted about the recipe too.
Inside Out Cookies are basically famous within our little circle here in West Michigan! 😉
Truthfully, they are REALLY good — so chocolaty. And that perfect combination of crispy on the outside but still soft and chewy on the inside.
Plus, the name is just fun!
People always give a strange look when we mention “Inside Out Cookies” — but they understand once they see the dark cookies with white chocolate chips.
If you’re looking for a new easy-but-tasty cookie recipe to add to your collection, give this one a whirl!
- 1 c. butter; softened
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 Tbl. milk
- 2 c. flour
- 1.25 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 c. white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350ºF
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter and both sugars for 3-4 minutes.
- Add eggs, vanilla, and milk. Mix well.
- Add flour, cocoa, soda, and salt. Mix VERY slowly to prevent a huge powdery mess**
- Stir in chocolate chips (I often use a mixture of white chocolate and dark chocolate)
- Scoop dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets
- (optional) Press additional white chocolate chips on the top of the dough balls -- this is just so the cookies look "prettier"!
- Bake in preheated oven for 11-13 minutes
- Slide parchment off cookie sheet onto counter and let cookies cool completely
- Freeze or store in an air-tight container at room temperature
**If your mixing bowl has a cover, you'll want to use it for this! I use the Nutrimill Artiste Mixer that comes with a built-in cover. This is super handy for messy doughs like this one!
