  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp espresso powder more or less to taste
  • 2/3 cup semi sweet or white chocolate chips optional


  • Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, espresso powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and both sugars together on high until light and fluffy - about 2 minutes.
  • Add in the cocoa powder and beat until combined.
  • Turn the mixer down to medium, and add in the egg. Mix until fully combined.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and milk.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Turn off the mixer as soon as everything is combined.
  • Fold in chocolate or white chocolate chips if using.
  • Scoop the dough into tablespoon sized balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet a few inches apart.
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
