Servings: 2 dozen


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder I like Ghirardelli 100% Cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp instant espresso powder optional but recommended
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375° degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners; set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until creamy, about 30 seconds. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and mix for another 1-2 minutes or until super fluffy and light. Add in the cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, espresso powder and flour and mix on low speed until just combined. Lastly, stir in both types of chocolate chips.
  • Using a Tablespoon-size cookie dough scoop, portion out rounded Tablespoonfuls of dough 2" apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time to ensure even cooking. Let cool on the baking sheets for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.


When chocolate is the star, I recommend splurging for a higher quality chocolate chip, such as Guittard or Ghirardelli.
