My Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best of both worlds finding a perfect balance between a chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate cookie. You can make these as picture perfect with one quick tip at the end.
Print Recipe



  • 1 stick butter melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg give it a quick mix before adding it in
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup cacao powder cocoa powder can be used here also.
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips for making these picture perfect

Kitchen Equipment Needed


  • Preheat your oven to 325F
  • Melt butter in a covered bowl your microwave. I found 40-45 seconds to be about right.
  • Add white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add lightly beaten egg and mix until combined. Be careful to not over mix as this will make the cookie tough.
  • Add flour, cacao powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Add chocolate chips and mix to combine.
  • Using a disher, or if you don't have one, make a ball of cookie dough and place it on to a cookie sheet. You'll get about 15 cookies from this mix.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes for soft cookies or 15-18 for a more crisp cookie.
  • Optional-If you want those picture perfect cookies, once these are out of the oven and still on the cookie sheet, press extra chocolate chips on to the top. They will melt on their own and look exactly how they appear here.
  • Enjoy with milk or non dairy beverage!



  • Cacao will achieve a richer taste and was used to make this recipe. If you just have cocoa powder, then just use that.
  • For softer cookies cook for 11-13 minutes and for crisper cookies cook for 15-18 minutes.
  • These do have that familiar molasses-y nature of chocolate chip cookies.
  • Use better quality chocolate chips, or chop of your favorite chocolate bar for delicious chunks.
  • If you don't want to use chocolate chips, then various candies make an awesome add in. Just add in your favorite candies in the same proportion. Candies like Butterfingers, M&Ms, York Peppermint Patties, Kit Kat, Pretzels, White Chocolate Chips and a wide variety of others would work well with this basic dough.
