  • Cookie Sheet


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (28 grams) melted
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar (50 grams)
  • 1 large egg yolk discard the white
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour (47 grams) not heaping, measured with a measuring spoon
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (10 -12 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • very small pinch salt
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a small-medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until the butter no longer looks separate.
  • Whisk in the egg yolk and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and stir until combined. 
  • Stir in 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips (you'll use the extra tablespoon later).
  • Form the dough into a large ball, place on the prepared baking tray.
  • Bake for13-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top of the cookie looks almost set.
  • Remove from the oven and stud the top of the cookie with the remaining chocolate chips. Let the cookie cool for at least 5 minutes before enjoying.


  1. Measuring Ingredients: Make sure to measure the ingredients using a measuring spoon, not a kitchen spoon. The tablespoons of flour and cocoa powder should not be heaping. Level off the top first.
  2. Nutrition: Information is an estimate only and based on enjoying the entire cookie to yourself. It is definitely big enough to share between 2-4 people.
