1. Chocolate Chip Funfetti Cookie Cake
Chock full of rainbow sprinkles and mini chocolate chips, this Chocolate Chip Funfetti Cookie Cake by Kristen Genton is the literal embodiment of a party! You can make it a gooey-er texture by cooking it for 20 minutes or leaving it in a little bit longer to get a cakey-er texture. Either way, it’s delicious — so delicious, you might regret making it for a crowd because you’ll want to keep it all to yourself.

This Chocolate Chip Banana Bread by Natasa Christofidou makes a much fluffier loaf and it’s also sweet, which is perfect for when you’re hosting people and need to quickly bake something delicious that’s still got a healthy concept to it! As for the ingredients, you can add pretty much whatever you want to it, from dried fruit to nuts, chocolate chips, and any other flavor additions you want ( cacao powder and cinnamon both work well, depending on what you’re craving).
5. Popcorn White Chocolate Chip Bars
6. Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza by Tiina Strandberg is like a gooey-in-the-middle, crispy-on-the-edges cookie. This cookie is perhaps the only one that you won’t mind sharing with others because it is enormous. The secret to the gooeyness of this cookie pizza is a peanut butter layer slathered between two layers of dough before baking that melts when the cookie is baked. You can enjoy this giant cookie either warm when it is still soft and gooey, or after a few hours or overnight when it has firmed up and is easy to cut into cookie pizza slices.
7. Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Scones
These Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Scones by Taavi Moore are fluffy, buttery, and oh so soft. Studded with gooey chunks of chocolate chips and carrots. The perfect addition to your summer brunch. You can never go wrong with an extra buttery and fluffy scone…especially when it has chocolate.
8. Baked Pumpkin Spice-Chocolate Chip Donuts
Just because you crave a donut doesn’t mean you need to resort to a greasy, fried one. Sure, those taste good but they are not the healthiest choice. These Baked Pumpkin Spice-Chocolate Chip Donuts by Brandi Doming are fluffy, moist, and super soft.
