  • 6 tablespoons butter room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 oz dark chocolate chips or semi sweet chunks
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup flour sifted
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder sifted
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Sea salt flakes for garnish optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Melt butter and chocolate chips using double boiler method or in the microwave with small increments of time. Let cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile beat the eggs and sugars on high with a handheld mixer for 4 minutes (set timer). Slowly pour in melted chocolate.
  • In a separate large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Whisk to combine and add to wet ingredients gradually.
  • The batter will be on the softer side and quite sticky. Quickly spoon about 1 tablespoons of batter on to baking sheets keeping about 2 -3 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until you see the crackly top. If you have a large oven where you can add multiple baking trays, that would be even better.
  • These cookies are thin but you can easily make them thicker by scooping about 2 tablespoons of batter. They will spread more too in this case and will be bigger.
  • These cookies have crackly top with softer and chewy inside. Sprinkle sea salt flakes on top before serving.
  • Let the cookies stand in the pan for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
