I have been on the hunt for a good chocolate chocolate chip cookie. I have found fudgy cookies. And flourless cookies. I have found crispy cookies and cakey cookies. But I have yet to find one that has the consistency of a chocolate chip cookie but with a chocolate base. Really, is this too much to ask?
So I made one myself.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie
280g unsalted butter, room temp
300g brown sugar
150g granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp salt
265g all purpose ﬂour (330g, if you like them thicker)
1 tsp baking soda
45g sweetened cocoa powder
45g unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp espresso powder
300g dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375°. Combine butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until light, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and mix until blended.
Whisk the flour, baking soda, cocoa powders, and espresso powder together, then add to the dough, continuing to mix for 2 minutes. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a size 20 scoop, bake for 10 minutes. The cookies will look undercooked but once they have cooled fully (a few hours), they will be perfect.
