  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened (3 oz)
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar for covering cookies


  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper then set aside.
  • Sift all of the dry ingredients (unsweetened cocoa, all purpose flour, ¼ cup powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt) into a mixing bowl then whisk them together.
  • Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy. Next add eggs, and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  • Slowly mix in your dry ingredients into the wet. Adding in about ¼ a cup at a time until combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips but be careful to not overmix.
  • Cover the bowl, and place the mixture in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
  • Once chilling is done remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Scoop the mixture and roll firmly into a ball of dough. Roll each ball very lightly in 2 tablespoons remaining powdered sugar and place on your prepared baking tray.
  • Place the balls of dough at least 2 inches apart and bake for 12 - 14 minutes until ready. Let the cookies cool completely before serving.


  • Tip: Do not skip this step. Chilling will allow your cookies to not melt or overspread when baking.
  • Tip: Cover these nice and thick. Do this right before baking.
