Why Chocolate Chip Cookies Are the Perfect Super Bowl Dessert

There are many reasons why chocolate chip cookies are the perfect Super Bowl dessert:

  • They’re crowd-pleasers. Everyone loves a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie, regardless of their age or taste preferences.
  • They’re easy to make. Even if you’re not a baking pro, you can whip up a delicious batch of cookies in no time.
  • They’re portable. Cookies are easy to grab and go, making them perfect for halftime snacking.
  • They’re customizable. You can add your favorite mix-ins, like nuts, pretzels, or even M&Ms, to make the cookies your own.

The Winning Recipe

This recipe yields about 2 dozen cookies, so you’ll have plenty to share with your guests. Feel free to adjust the amount of chocolate chips or add in other mix-ins to suit your taste.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for Making the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Use high-quality ingredients. The better the ingredients, the better the cookies will taste.
  • Don’t overmix the dough. Overmixing will result in tough cookies.
  • Chill the dough. Chilling the dough for at least 30 minutes will help the cookies spread less and be chewier.
  • Use a variety of chocolate chips. Semisweet, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate chips all add different flavors and textures.
  • Bake the cookies on a silicone baking mat. This will help prevent them from sticking and burning.

With these tips and the winning recipe, you’re sure to bake up a batch of chocolate chip cookies that will be the star of your Super Bowl party. So get baking, and enjoy the game!

Additional Tips:

  • For extra gooey cookies, use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough. This will create thicker cookies that will bake up chewier.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with a little bit of sea salt before baking for a sweet and salty flavor combination.
  • Get creative with your mix-ins! Try adding chopped nuts, pretzels, dried fruit, or even candy bars to your cookies.
  • If you’re short on time, you can use store-bought cookie dough. Just be sure to bake it according to the package instructions.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and have a Super Bowl Sunday filled with delicious food, good company, and great football!
