Two-Bite Pure Chocolate Bliss

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients for Double-Shot Mocha Chunks

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon espresso powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa
1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup chocolate chunks: semisweet, white, or espresso

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or line with parchment two cookie sheets.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, baking powder, espresso powder, and salt.

3. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating until smooth.

4. Stir in the cocoa powder and flour; the dough will be stiff.

5. Mix in the chocolate chips and chunks.

6. Drop the cookies by tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/2″ balls) onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1 1/2″ between them. A tablespoon cookie scoop works well here.
