Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever


I. Can’t. Even.  How many chocolate chip recipes are there in the world?  I have no idea.

The best ones I had ever had, UNTIL NOW, were from The Cookie Place in Rexburg, Idaho.  Seriously.  Four big cookies in a box for $12, but so dang worth it!

Then one day I was making chocolate chip cookies with Thrive’s Classic Cookie Dough Mix and my husband said add pecans. So I did.  And then he asked “What’s Thrive Macaroon Cookie Mix?”  And I said that it was a little piece of coconut heaven, so we added that as well.

The results were simply life changing.  Enough said.  Try them for yourself. You’re welcome.



3 1/3 cups Thrive Classic Cookie Dough mix

2 sticks of butter (1 cup), softened

1/4 cup Thrive Macaroon Cookie Mix

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

3 T. water


  1. Preheat oven on convection bake to 325 degrees F., or regular bake at 350 degrees.
  2. Place the butter in a stand mixer and mix until creamy.
  3. Add in the cookie mixes, semisweet chocolate chips, pecans, and water.  Mix until well combined.
  4. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and drop cookie dough on each.  I used a medium cookie scoop and got about 13 cookies on each sheet.
  5. Bake on convection for about 12 minutes–we like our cookies a little softer so 12 minutes worked for us.
