Ingredients Needed

  • Flour + Salt + Baking powder
  • Unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • Vanilla
  • White sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Dark chocolate chips

Ingredients Notes

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

I like Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder, however, use your preferred brand. While I do highly recommend the dark cocoa powder for a richer chocolate taste, you can use regular unsweetened cocoa powder, if desired.

Dark Chocolate Chips

Nestle makes dark chocolate chips that can be usually found in the same section as your regular baking chips. If you can’t locate them, Amazon does have them. Like the cocoa powder, I do recommend using the dark chocolate chips, but, semi sweet or milk chocolate can be used. Also, if desired, you can chop up a dark chocolate baking bar instead of using the baking chips.

Brown Sugar

If desired, you can substitute regular brown sugar with coconut palm sugar.

How to Make

  • First, whisk together your dry ingredients. Set aside. Then, in saucepan, melt a portion of the chocolate chips with the butter. Once it’s fully melted, set it aside and let it cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla. Then, add in the melted chocolate mixture, then, dry ingredients. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Important: Your dough will be on the softer side. Therefore, be sure to refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes before heading to the next step. You can keep it in the refrigerator longer or even overnight, if desired.
  • When you are ready, scoop about a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Coat the ball in a bit of sugar, then, place it on your baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Bake!
  • Once baked, let them sit on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing. Then, remove from sheet and cool completely on a wire rack.
