  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (200g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups (281g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (50g) cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (340g) chocolate chips (semisweet or dark)
  • Sea salt flakes, for topping


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
Sprinkle a few sea salt flakes on top of each cookie, gently pressing them into the dough.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers are still slightly soft.
Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, enjoy these double chocolate chip cookies with a glass of cold milk or a cup of your favorite hot beverage.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
