Units Scale
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened to 68-70 degrees
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 2/3 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted and cooled for 5 minutes
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • First melt dark chocolate chips in the microwave until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, cream softened butter in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Next, add in sugar and brown sugar and mix with electric mixer for about 1 minute, until creamy. Add eggs, instant espresso powder, vanilla extract, and salt, and mix for about 30 seconds until incorporated. Lastly add in cooled melted dark chocolate and mix until combined.
  •  Slowly add in self rising flour in increments and mix until just combined. Next, add in semi sweet chocolate chips and gently stir by hand until evenly incorporated.
  • Cover and place your cookie dough in the refrigerator to chill for a minimum of 1 hour. If you have the time, I strongly recommend chilling the dough overnight.
  • After your double chocolate chip cookie dough has chilled, remove from fridge, and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop and scoop out even amount sized balls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I usually put 5 cookies to a sheet so that the cookies have plenty of space.
  • The next step is of course optional, but if you want to make these extra yummy, then add a few semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips on top of each cookie dough ball.
  • Next bake your double chocolate chip cookies in the oven for 9-12 minutes or until the edges are set and the center is still slightly softened. Tip: If you prefer a softer, more fudgy, ooey gooey in the center cookie, bake for the lower recommended time, and if you prefer a more chewy cookie throughout bake for the highest recommended time.*As always, you might have to adjust times according to your oven.
  • Let the cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
  • Serve and enjoy!
