Double Chocolate Cranberry Chunkies (Aldi Cookie Recipe)

Hi guys,  here is a great cookie recipe that I found in a Aldi cookie book I have.  I didn’t even remember that I had this book and I was very happy and surprised.  I don’t know if they even sell these anymore and I sure don’t remember when I got this or purchased it, but I am sharing this recipe so you can enjoy another awesome cookie recipe that is budget friendly.

All ingredients here can be purchased which I alway love.  The name of this cookie book is”Home for the Holidays” and it was done by



1 ½ bars (10.58 ounces each) Austrian milk chocolate

1-¾ cups flour

1/3 cup baking cocoa

½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

1-cup (2 sticks) butter softened

1-cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

¾ cup dried cranberries

Additional sugar for dipping


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Chop chocolate bars into small chunks to measure 2 cups and set aside.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside.  Beat butter, 1-cup sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl on medium speed using a hand mixer until light and fluffy.   Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended.  Gradually beat in the flour mixture on low-speed until blended.  Then stir in chocolate chunks and cranberries.

Drop dough by ¼ cup full onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart.  Flatten dough to 2 inches in diameter with a bottom of a glass that has been dipped in sugar.

Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set.  Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to wire cooling rack.
