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!
