  • 1 cup all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter softened (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons)
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. 
  • In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugars until fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and continue mixing until combined. Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Slowly mix in the dry ingredients on low speed until incorporated. 
  • Turn off the electric mixer and stir in the chocolate chips. I usually reserve about ¼ cup of chocolate chips for sprinkling on top.
  • Cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or up to 48.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Take the dough out of the fridge for 10-15 minutes to warm up slightly. 
  • Form dough into balls 3 tablespoons in size and place 3 inches apart on baking sheets. (Or form into balls of 1 - 1.5 tablespoons in size and place 2 inches apart).
  • Bake cookies for 11-13 minutes until the tops are just set (or 8-10 minutes for smaller cookies). Remove from oven and let cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling. While the cookies are fresh from the oven, optionally dot the tops of each cookie with a few extra chocolate chips.
