Description

These Double Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies are supremely chocolatey, chewy, and decadent. Be sure to under bake them just a tad, as they’ll set to a wonderfully chewy texture upon cooling.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound (450g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons (60g) salted butter
  • 1/2 cup (70g) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, preferably aluminum-free
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups (350g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups (320g) chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (or chips)
  • Optional: flaky sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a heavy small pot over simmer, stir together the 1lb chocolate with 4 TB butter until just melted and smooth; take care not to let it burn. Remove from heat and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat together eggs, sugar, and vanilla on high speed until a well-defined ribbon is formed, about 5 minutes. Switch to low speed and gently mix in the melted chocolate. Using rubber spatula, fold in the dry mixture, followed by chocolate chips; dough will be wet. Cover and chill at least an hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Form rounded tablespoons of cookie dough and place 2 inches apart on pans.
  4. Bake about 8 minutes, until tops are cracked and have puffed up; do not over bake. Cookies will seem under-baked, but will set upon cooling. If desired, sprinkle lightly with a bit of sea salt. Let cookies cool completely on baking sheets before carefully removing.

Notes

These yummy cookies are best eaten within 24-48 hours. Dough can be wrapped airtight and frozen for a couple of weeks; defrost in fridge and bake as directed.
Many bakers, including David Lebovitz, use a cookie scoop to make forming dough balls easier.
