Ingredients

  • 270 grams (2 ¼ cups) flour
  • 21 grams (¼ cup) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 oz (½ cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 248 grams (1 ¼ cup) sugar
  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 84 grams (½ cup) chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, sugar, and melted chocolate on medium speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
  5. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  6. Stir in about ¾ of the chocolate chips, making sure to save the rest for the tops of the cookies.
  7. Using a 2 tablespoon scoop, form cookies into balls and place each cookie on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  8. Add a few chocolate chips to the tops of each cookie.
  9. Place each cookie a few inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-15 minutes or until cookies are firm around the edges. If you want you can use a round cookie cutter or cup to "cookie scoot" the cookies at the 12 minute mark.
  10. Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully moving them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week but are best when enjoyed within the first few days.
  • Cookie dough can be made ahead, scooped and topped with peanut butter chips and placed in a ziploc bag to be frozen for up to two months. Once you’re ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes and bake. You’ll need to add on an extra 5 minutes or so to the original baking time.
