These Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies are deliciously thick, soft, and chewy, and oh so chocolatey. The cream cheese makes these extra soft!
Today, I bring you my Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies! If you loved my Soft and Chewy Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies, then you’ll definitely love this chocolate version.
I absolutely love adding cream cheese to my cookies. It makes them extra soft, and I love super soft and chewy cookies! Once you try adding cream cheese to your cookies, you’ll want to add it to all your cookie recipes. 😉
Double chocolate: cocoa powder and chocolate chips. I added 1 whole cup of chocolate chips to these cookies, because I looove chocolate chips, and I love devouring these cookies warm with all those melting chocolate chips inside. Chocolate heaven!
If you are a chocolate lover like me, then these cookies are for you. Seriously. You need to make these now!
Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper, or a silicone mat. Set aside.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cornflour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Whisk together the butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add the egg and mix until combined, then mix in the vanilla extract. Fold in the dry ingredients, then fold in the chocolate chips.
