Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Cream together butter, sugars, the egg, and vanilla extract in a bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Add flour, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, and espresso powder and mix until just combined, taking care not to overmix.
  • Stir in chocolate chunks.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop rounded cookie dough balls about 2"-apart from one another onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 11-12 minutes, or until the tops are mostly set. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
