Servings: 24 medium cookies


  • 2 ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups lightly packed brown sugar
  • cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 1 package (270g) Chipits Milk Chocolate Chips


  • Pre-heat your oven to 375°F and line a couple of baking trays with parchment paper.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat brown sugar and butter together until combined.
  • Stir in the eggs and hot water until smooth.
  • Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture and stir until combined.

  • Roll slightly heaped tablespoon sized portions of dough into balls and place them onto your prepared baking trays, about 2 inches apart. Press the dough balls down slightly to flatten them a bit.
