Even though most of the time I would probably choose crispy chocolate chip cookies – I also would never mind having a few soft chocolate chip cookies. Soft chocolate chip cookies have a cake-y texture, they’re big and remind me of a muffin top texture-wise.

This soft chocolate chip recipe is so easy to make and kids love them. Perfect for Christmas or even if you just want to bake something yummy and easy.
