The perfect cookie is fudgy, slightly fluffy, and perfectly sweet. Yummy chocolate rounds hit all of those marks. Make them for your chocolate loving friends and family.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 10 tbsp unsalted butter , softened (1 stick plus 2 tbsp)
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugars together. 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. Disconnect the electric mixer and stir in the chocolate chips. Reserve about 1/4 cup of chocolate chips for sprinkling on top. Cover with cling film and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Take the dough out of the fridge for 10-15 minutes to warm up slightly. Form dough into balls 2-3 tablespoons in size and flatten slightly. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes or until the surface is dry and cookies look almost set. Remove from oven and let cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling. Allow cookies to cool about 15-20 minutes so that they can set.
