Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 9 cookies


  • Hand mixer or stand mixer


  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4oz or 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Start by preheating the oven to 350F then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan melt the butter over medium-low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and add in the chocolate chips. Stir until melted and well incorporated.
  • While the butter and chocolate mixture in melting, whisk the room temperature egg and both the granulated sugar and brown sugar using a stand mixer or a hand mixer. Beat on medium-high speed for 3-5 minutes or until the mixture is light and airy.
  • Slowly add in the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and gently fold. Add in the dry ingredients to the wet mixture again and fold using a rubber spatula. Avoid over-mixing, you want to fold in the dry i=mixture just until it's combined.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, drop the batter in balls onto the parchment lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches in between each cookie. Top the cookie dough with sea salt if you want and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 10-15 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling wrack to cool completely!
  • Enjoy!
