Servings 16 cookies


  • parchment paper


  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 1/2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in both sugars and mix well.
  • Cool slightly (just a minute or two).
  • Add the egg and vanilla. Stir well
  • Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt (not sea salt) to the sauce pan and stir well.
  • Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoon onto a parchment lined (or greased) baking sheet.
