30 minutes active, 30 minutes inactive to prepare serves 24
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips and butter, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs, white and brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder, and salt with an electric mixer on high for 5 minutes. The batter should become thick and creamy.
Reduce mixer speed to low, and add in the melted chocolate. Continue mixing until well combined.
Stir in flour and cocoa powder, until just combined. Cover the bowl and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Once chilled, drop batter in 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized scoops onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake until edges are set but center is still soft, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet. Enjoy!
