Homemade and Delicious

When you think of Karo® Corn Syrup, you may think of Thanksgiving and Christmas baking.  I know in my family recipes, we have always used Karo® Corn Syrup when baking pecan pies, fudge, making homemade popcorn balls, and even candy apples!

Karo® Corn Syrup has been a staple in my family’s kitchen for many years – I remember using it in baked goods as a child!  Now, in my own kitchen, I always keep some on hand because I often use it in my homemade desserts.

It’s also the leading corn syrup brand for over 100 years, and I like to stick to brands that I can trust.  Ingredients come together with Karo® Corn Syrup to create delicious recipes in the same way that people come together to create joyful traditions.  With every bottle of Karo® Corn Syrup, you open tradition and inspiration.

From the irresistible classic pecan pie to the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookies, recipes are simply better when made with Karo® Corn Syrup.  So, whatever it is you’re baking or making, come together with Karo® Corn Syrup for all of life’s sweetness.

One of my favorite ways to use Karo® Corn Syrup is to add it to my cookie dough.  It makes cookies chewy on the outside and creates that soft center that is often desired in a cookie.  Ultimately, it makes delicious cookies that you can’t wait to sink your teeth into!

Adding Karo® Corn Syrup goes beyond these chewy chocolate chip chunk cookies, though. It’s also great for peanut butter cookies and sugar cookies to make them even chewier!

Making Chewy Chocolate Chip Chunk Cookies

Making these cookies is incredibly easy, and they don’t take a lot of ingredients! This recipe uses very common ingredients such as unsalted butter, eggs, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, all-purpose flour, and salt.

The most important and common ingredient is the addition of Karo® Corn Syrup. It’s what makes these cookies super chewy!

I use a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chunks to give different flavors and textures of chocolate.

The chocolate gives give a semi-sweet flavor and the chocolate chunks give a crunch into every bite. The end result is a tender, chewy, and chocolatey cookie.

Chilling the Dough

Chilling your cookie dough before baking these cookies ensures that the cookies don’t spread too much and become very flat. Chilling them in the refrigerator allows them to keep their shape during baking.

Once you’re ready to bake the cookies, take the dough out of the refrigerator. roll it into 1 inch balls, and place them onto a lightly greased cookie sheet or on silicone mats on top of your cookie sheets.

Place the unused dough back into the refrigerator to keep the dough chilled and ready for the next batch of cookies!

After the cookies are done baking, allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely. Top with additional chocolate chips and chunks if desired!
