Print Recipe


  • ½ cup plus 2 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 10 ounces good quality bitter sweet chocolate chopped
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tbsp. butter room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • ½ tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup good quality bitter sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a heat proof bowl melt chocolate in microwave at 50% power, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth, set aside to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • In large mixing bowl using paddle attachment, combine butter and sugar and beat on medium speed until creamy.
  • Add eggs, one at a time mixing well in between.
  • Increase speed to high and beat for about 3 minutes until batter is light and pale in colour, scrape bowl as needed.
  • Turn mixer to low, add in melted chocolate and vanilla, combine just until incorporated.
  • Remove bowl from mixer and with spatula fold in flour mixture. (do not over mix )
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Immediately scoop dough onto cookie sheets (heaping tablespoon) about 2 inches apart.
  • As dough will harden quickly scoop all dough onto cookies sheets. It is best to bake all cookies at once if you have a convection oven, if not keep cookies at room temperature until ready to bake next batch.
  • Bake 14-16 minutes until tops evenly crack, turn cookie sheet halfway through baking time.
  • Leave cookies to cool on cookie sheet on wire rack before removing.
