  • 2 ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts (chopped)


  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Once combined set aside. 
  • Using a stand mixer or electric mixer beat softened butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Once well combined add in eggs one at a time then vanilla extract. Add in dry ingredients and mix until well-combined. 
  • Fold in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Place dough in the fridge and allow to chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll out into 1 inch balls and place them on your baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes. Allow to cool on pan for several minutes then serve.


  • Tip: Don't skip chilling your dough. This will help them to hold their shape.
