This recipe is extremely adaptable, it's a basic and yummy chocolate chip cookie recipe, but you could add any flavor of chocolate chips or candy pieces [i.e. M&M's, Reese's Pieces, sprinkles, chopped up candy bars, etc.] This recipe yield is 1 giant cookie, but even if you half the recipe the cookies are still giant enough to be cooler than your average sized cookie, I've done it both ways and it turns out great either way!

Giant CookiePrintable Version
½ cup white sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup butter, melted and cooled
½ teaspoon soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cup flour
½ cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium-sized bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar, and butter. Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combined. In a separate bowl, combine soda, salt, and flour and mix well. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix to incorporate. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
Line a large (11x17 inch) cookie sheet with foil. Press the cookie into a circle and place in the center of the cookie sheet. I press my cookie into a 8-inch circle, about ¼ to ½ inch thick. When it bakes, it spreads to about 10 ½ to 11 inches
If desired, top the cookie with M&M’s or any other candies or garnishes. Bake for 12-16 minutes until the cookie is lightly golden brown. When it’s done baking, place the cookie sheet on a wire rack and let the cookie cool completely on the pan - this helps it stabilize and set so it can be easily lifted off the pan. Once cool, gently use the foil to lift the cookie off the pan.
Makes one giant cookie!
