  • cups black cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips pick your favorite


  • Preheat oven to 400°. And line a rimmed sheet pan with a silicon liner or parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, then set off to the side.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer add butter and sugars, mix on low to medium-low until combined. Add one egg at a time and mix after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl before gradually adding the dry ingredients. Mix until thoroughly combined. Add in the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
  • Using a 2-tablespoon scoop, place rounded dough onto prepared sheet pan. Bake in preheated oven for 6-8 minutes. If still soft after 8 minutes, bake for 1 minute increments.
  • Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
