  • 16 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips


  • Place the bittersweet chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water and melt, stirring frequently, until smooth. Remove the pan from the heat.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a handheld electric mixer), beat the eggs and sugar on medium speed until thick and pale, approximately 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and salt. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the melted chocolate.
  • Sift together the flour, espresso powder and baking powder. Fold into the batter, followed by the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into a shallow baking dish and place in the freezer until firm, approximately 50-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Fill a large cup with hot water. Dip a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop into the hot water, shake off the excess liquid and then scoop the dough onto the prepared sheet. Leave about 2 inches of space between each cookie so they have room to spread. Repeat, dunking the scoop in the hot water as needed.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until dry around the edges and cracked on top. Allow to cool completely before serving.
