Cocoa Chocolate Chunk Cookies

These bad ass cookies are similar to my double chocolate chip cookies but richer and more decadent. Chocolate craving? Not anymore.

Cocoa Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Makes about 36 cookies, depending on size.

Shopping List

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1, 12 ounce bag of semi sweet chocolate chunks
  • Flakes sea salt

Method

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cacao powder, baking soda and kosher salt. Set aside.

In a stand mixer, cream together the butter, vanilla, and sugars. When light in color and smooth, add one egg at a time. Once eggs are incorporated, slowly add the cacao-flour mix. Stir in the morsels.

Place a cookie or ice cream scoop of batter on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on each cookie. Bake for 9-11 minutes. I like to rotate the pans at the 5 minute mark, but every oven is different! Allow to cool for 2 minutes on the pan and then cook entirely on racks.
