Ingredients

  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips 60-70% cacao
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder not Dutch-processed
  • 1 cup pecans chopped, optional
  • 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Melt bittersweet chocolate chips and butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and well-combined.
  • Remove from heat, and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the eggs, sugars, vanilla, baking powder, and salt on high speed 5 minutes, or until the batter is thick and creamy. This step is key, so make sure to beat the mixture for the full 5 minutes.
  • Reduce the speed to low, and mix in the melted chocolate until well-combined.
  • Stir in flour and cocoa powder just until combined.
  • Add nuts, if using, and mini chocolate chips. Stir in to combine. The batter should be the consistency of a thick brownie batter at this point.
  • Cover the batter, and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Using a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop, drop batter onto the prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake cookies 8-10 minutes. The cookie will look set at the edges but still be a little wet looking in the center. Don't overbake, or the cookies won't be crackly and fudgy.
  • The shiny, crackly crust will develop as the cookies cool on the baking sheet.
