Some sweet news to kick off your social distancing Easter weekend: For the first time ever, DoubleTree by Hilton is sharing the official bake-at-home recipe for the brand’s beloved and delicious chocolate chip cookie, so at-home bakers can create the warm and comforting treat in their own kitchens. I’m sharing the full, authentic DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe at the bottom of this post, and you can also see a video of how to make it here. What a great day when two of my passions (travel and recipes) combine!
The warm chocolate chip cookie welcome is synonymous with DoubleTree hotels worldwide, and travelers look forward to receiving one, fresh from the oven, upon their arrival. As a loyal Hilton gal, I can attest to this… that warm, comforting cookie is something I can expect to greet me at DoubleTree by Hilton hotels no matter where I am in the world.
DoubleTree cookies have a passionate fan following and a long history. More than 30 million are consumed every year, and the DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie even became the first food to be baked in orbit during experiments aboard the International Space Station.
Copycat recipes have been shared online for years, but only now has Hilton released the official version to create at home.
“We know this is an anxious time for everyone,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “A warm chocolate chip cookie can’t solve everything, but it can bring a moment of comfort and happiness.
“We hope families enjoy the fun of baking together during their time at home, and we look forward to welcoming all our guests with a warm DoubleTree cookie when travel resumes.”
DoubleTree by Hilton is a fast-growing, global portfolio of nearly 590 upscale hotels with more than 135,000 rooms across 47 countries. For more than 50 years, DoubleTree by Hilton has continued to be a symbol of comfort for business and leisure travelers around the world, from welcoming guests with its signature warm DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie, to serving the local community.

Now I’m off to make a batch of my own for my long Easter weekend at-home staycation, and I look forward to the day I can have one again at a DoubleTree hotel!
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy! Thanks to DoubleTree by Hilton for sharing this with us!
