You know those beautifully large double chocolate chip cookies that you would find in a bakery? These cookies are quite similar to those, but I made them smaller and a bit more bite-sized for the kiddos and because, well, I need little snacks throughout the day.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
- 1 large egg
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter with the brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Once combined, mix in the melted chocolate, egg, and vanilla extract.
- Turn off the mixer and mix in about half of the flour mixture until mostly combined, then beat in the second half until flour is no longer visible.
- Fold in the chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
- Using a cookie dough scoop, scoop out dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheet, then move to a wire cooling rack to continue to cool.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
