This is the best Dried Cranberry Chocolate Cookies recipe ever! 

Taking your regular chocolate chip to the next level.
Soft and chewy full of chocolate chips, those cookie’s flavor is unparalleled by any other recipe. And when you add dried cranberries and white chocolate to it, the flavor is exponentially off the charts. A very straight forward recipe that is amazingly delicious and that turns out perfectly every single time.

Chocolate and Cranberries, Yummy!!

I created this recipe over 10 years ago and like clockwork, it is the first recipe that my family asks for under the holidays.   I really love to use and mix dark chocolate with white chocolate.  The blended flavor is just sinful and additive at every bite. But not all kinds of chocolate. Ghirardelli or Guittard and bittersweet chocolate for the dark chocolate.

I love to use bittersweet, dark chocolate, the flavor is deeper.

Cranberries are my favorite and use them as often as I possibly can in my cooking. Leave them whole or chop them, I leave that up to you.


  • Use parchment paper on your baking sheets. Easy to clean your baking sheet.
  • I use an ice cream scooper to make the perfect round and all the same amount of dough for cookies. Easy and perfect each time.
  • As not all the ovens are the same, your dried cranberry chocolate cookies are done when the edges are beginning to brown and the center is still soft. Overbaking them can make it harder to enjoy them.
  • Always let the baking sheet cool off completely before adding the second batch of cookies to bake. By doing it too soon your cookies will burn faster.
