  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 15 min


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line sheet pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

In bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, or in large bowl with hand-held mixer, beat butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy, about 3-4 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Add vanilla.

Step 3

In medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture all at once and mix on low until combined. Stir in chocolate, reserving 1/2 cup of the chopped chocolate.

Step 4

Use large cookie scoop or 1/4 cup to measure out cookie dough. Use your hands to roll into balls and place on prepared sheet pan 3 inches apart (you’ll get 6 cookies to a pan). Top each with a few reserved chocolate chunks.

Step 5

Bake until edges are golden but middles still look a little doughy, about 13-15 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
