  • 1 cup unsalted butter cold*
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon espresso powder optional
  • 2 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Cups Chocolate Chips*


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on high until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the sugar and mix until full combined. You may need to scrap down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Add in the vanilla, eggs, and espresso powder, if using, and mix until combined. Mixture will look really wet.
  • Turn the mixture to low and add in the flour ½ cup at a time then add the cocoa powder.
  • Turn the mixer up to medium speed and add in the baking powder and salt. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottoms.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the cookie dough and form into 1-inch balls. Place on prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes*
  • Remove from oven and enjoy!


Lisa’s Tips

*I like to cube my butter so it’s easier/faster for the mixer to whip up.
* Using a chopped-up chocolate bar in lieu of 1 cup of chocolate chips gives a nice melty chocolate cookie.
*I like to pull the cookies out slightly underdone- closer to 9 minutes- which helps them stay softer and chewier.
