Servings 18 cookies


  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup packed, light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour spooned and leveled, see notes
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoon cocoa powder Dutch process
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • flaky sea salt for sprinkling (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add softened, unsalted butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar to a large bowl. Cream the butter and sugars with an electric mixer for two minutes, or until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the egg yolks and vanilla and mix on medium speed for two minutes, or until the mixture is pale in color and fluffy.
  • Add in flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix until combined.
    (Please see recipe notes on properly measuring the flour for these cookies. Too much flour will ruin the cookies consistency.)
  • Then add in the chocolate chips and mix just until incorporated.
  • Scoop the dough into 18 balls. Arrange the dough two inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. (Short amount for slightly underdone centers, full amount for a crispier edged cookie).
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle on flaky sea salt. Let them cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool for an additional 5 minutes before eating.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to four days!


***Measure your flour properly. This is always my #1 baking tip. Do not ever scoop a measuring cup into your flour. This will always lead to using too much flour. (Trust me, I've learned the hard way that I need to measure properly!) Instead, sprinkle spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and swipe excess flour off with the back of a knife. Or better yet, weigh your flour. 1 cup of flour equals 125 grams.
