These are the kind of cookies that make you change your outlook on cookies. I typically love a thin, crisp cookie, and these are NOT those. They’re cakey, they’re thick and they’re delicious and you will thank me after you’ve eaten one.
- 1 cup (level) + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 4 Tbsp dark cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (heaping- you want less than 1/2, but more than 1/4)
- 2 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons soy milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 325F. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together, making sure to mix well.
- In a larger bowl (microwave safe) combine one cup of the chocolate chips and all of the butter. Heat them on high for 20 seconds at a time, mixing between each blast to ensure even melting and that they don’t burn. Once they’re melted and can be whisked together smoothly, add in the vanilla and the sugars. Once that is done, add the eggs one by one and finish with the soy milk.
- Incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet and stir- you do NOT want to over-mix this as they’ll end up way too tough.
- Add the remaining chocolate chips by folding gently.
- Using an ice cream scoop (about 1/4 cup) scoop the batter and place the cookies on the tray one by one, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie (better to err on the side of caution and give more space).
- Reduce the heat to 300 and bake for 17-20 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when they tops get dark and have a bit of a shine.
- Remove from oven and let completely cool on tray. Use a spatula to remove once cooled.
These will store for about 5 days in fridge or in an air tight container, but I doubt they’ll actually last that long with how delicious they are. I hope you enjoy these! Make sure to tag me @JackDHarding and let me know if you make them!
