- Makes about 25 cookies
- 1 1/2 cup (180g) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (60g) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tsp (6g) baking powder
- 1/2 tsp (3g) salt
- 1/2 cup (113g) butter, softened
- 1 cup (200g) sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract
- 4 oz (120g) semisweet chocolate, chips/chunks
- 1/2 cup (60g) powdered sugar
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl mix butter with sugar until light, creamy and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract and mix to combine.
- Gradually incorporate flour mixture. Fold in semisweet chocolate chips/chunks. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Place powdered sugar into a bowl.
- Using your ice cream scoop take equal portions of dough, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) balls and roll into the powdered sugar, coating thickly. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, keeping 2 inches (5cm) space between cookies.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are cracked. Cool on baking sheets for 5minutes. Remove to the cooling rack to cool completely.
