Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks*
  • ½ cup sprinkles classic jimmies

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Reduce the speed to low and add in the egg, orange juice, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix to combine.
  • Turn off the mixer and add in the dry ingredients.
  • Turn the mixer on low speed and mix until the dough comes together (it will be sticky).
  • Take the bowl off the mixer, and pour in the chocolate chunks and sprinkles, and mix slowly with a spatula.
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Use an ice cream scooper to make even balls of dough and place 5 on each sheet, separated enough to allow them to spread — remember they are big!
  • Place one cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes, then bake for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, open the oven door, lift the cookie sheet and bang it hard on the oven rack. You can do this once or several times if you like.
  • Bake for 2 more minutes — repeat banging.
  • Bake for 2 more minutes again — repeat banging.
  • Bake for the last two minutes, and remove from the oven.

Notes

*You need to use chocolate chunks not chips for this recipe. The chips are too heavy and don't spread well when baking. Either buy a bag of chunks or a large bar and chop them yourself.
