Chocolate Chip Cookies & Chocolate Butterball Cookies
The only CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES I ever make is the Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe. This recipe was even used by my mom while I was growing up and has always been our family favorite.

The entire batch of these CHOCOLATE BUTTERBALLS can be baked on one large baking sheet. They taste great whether you eat them plain or roll them in the cocoa powder mixed with powdered sugar. This is a very low sugar recipe especially if you eat them plain. For the recipe click HERE.
I am loving your treat recipes this month!
I had so many I was afraid I wouldn’t get them all in by Christmas so I am posting two at a time. Thank you!
Good candidates for the cookie swap!
That’s one thing I never did. I even hoped my daughter would come over and we could swap and bake together but she is always too busy.
Every year, our church people make tos of cookies and we pack them all as an amazing assortment, make them pretty with wide ribbons and bows, and sell them at our holiday food sale. last year, we sold two dozen boxes!
Such a wonderful idea!
I really need to make this!!!!!!!
Both are very delicious, enjoy Viola!
I just love your cookie recipes (especially this time of year 🙂). The chocolate chip cookies will be a hit in our house … and it looks quite easy to make!
Thank you, they are very easy to make and the Toll House recipe is our favorite. 💕
Thank you Ned!
Reblogged this on Ned Hamson's Second Line View of the News.
Tis the season! These are great cookie recipes Diane. I hope you enjoyed reading your post today.
You did an amazing job with it and all the others as well. That is a wonderful idea you had, thank you for letting me be a part of it!
It is my pleasure to read the stories and recipes of my favorite bloggers.
Awww you are so sweet!
Looks so delicious. And I love your festive plate!
Thank you Ab!
Just pass me some chocolate milk and I am in heaven!
I agree! Thank you JC!
I love the recipes that have simple ingredients but are so delicious 😋
I agree, especially when you make so many kinds for Christmas. Thank you💕
I haven’t heard of Chocolate Butterballs. Love that there’s no eggs. (Egg allergy here.)
Perfect! They are also low in sugar until you roll them in powdered sugar. Lo
Christmas cookie time – fond memories in my mind and tummy of this time of year. How did I zip my pants and were slim skirts? Hmm?
I still have a pretty full freezer of beef so I’m hoping I can get all the cookies in there! Back then we were so active we burned off all the calories!
A shame if you had to eat the “overflow”. 🙂 My mom would always have a plate of cookies every night around Christmastime … those were cookies that broke or weren’t pretty, so I got them, the rest went into the containers for closer to Christmas. That’s true – I never watched my weight or gave any thought to what treats or sweets I put into my mouth back in the day.
The good ole days!
I was happy to clean up the overflow and misfits!
The chocolate butterball is new to me, Diane, and looks really interesting. Can you describe the taste and texture a little more? I like the fact that they’re not super-sweet. Maybe a treat with morning coffee?
Perfect with coffee. They are just like the regular butterballs (I will be posting the recipe) only with a mild chocolate flavor. The chocolate flavored powdered sugar adds just enough sweetness. There is very little sugar in the cookie itself but for some reason they still taste great and melt in your mouth. They were even tasty without the powdered sugar. They don’t spread when you bake them so they can all go on one pan, which I love!
This is intriguing! I’m looking for a new addition to me Christmas cookie repertoire and these could be the one!
Thank you Kim!
