Who wants a homemade chocolate chip cookie? How about a MEGA homemade chocolate chip cookie?
I recently finished tutoring for the school year and wanted to give my students a little end-of-the-year gift. The students had different backgrounds, ages, and interests so it was a bit of a challenge to think of something they would all like.
Sometimes it’s hard to find just the right gift to say thank-you, or to let someone that you’re thinking of them. However, I’ve met very few people who don’t like homemade chocolate chip cookies. My students were no exception, and your friends probably aren’t either.
Mega cookies are the answer!
If you have some frozen cookie dough from following the instructions found in another gift idea post, you can skip a few steps. 🙂
Otherwise, just make your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (or you could make my spectatular Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cranberry Walnut cookie recipe), then put 3 scoops together on a parchment paper-covered cookie sheet. I can fit 2 of these cookies per cookie sheet.
Wet your hands with cold water and smooth them. Since they are so big, the middles will be undercooked if they are not leveled.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Check on them starting at about the 8 minute mark, as ovens vary.
Don’t they look yummy and ready for a big glass of cold milk?
The parchment paper helps them to remain in one piece as you remove them to cool on a wire rack.
Let them cool for a bit, then wrap in plastic wrap and tie a bow. Such a yummy and thoughtful gesture!

I love those giant cookies. Would be nice if you sandwiched them with some ice cream. Yum!
Oh wow, that would be amazing!!
Great idea! Super sizing a chocolate chip cookie is a great invention! You can say you only had three (super sized) cookies today and everyone would think you had great self control.
That’s true! Hard to have self control with homemade cookies. I’m considering making these cookies with M&Ms next. 🙂
