  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 egg

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 pkg (12oz) semisweet chocolate chips


First, place chocolate chips on a thin sheet of aluminum foil. Do not use a thick pan, this will cause the chocolate to melt. A thin sheet of foil works best, as it does not hold much heat.

Place aluminum foil with chocolate chips on the smoker.

Using a light smoke, cold smoke chocolate chips at no more than 105-110 degrees. If you can get your smoker down to 70-80 degrees, that is preferred. The colder the better.

Smoke chocolate about 20-30 minutes, or until desired smoke flavor is achieved. 

Pull off smoker and set to cool.

Meanwhile, mix sugars. butter, vanilla and egg in a large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt (dough will be stiff). Once cooled, stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
