Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 (11.5-oz.) package semisweet chocolate chunks
  • Mocha Frosting
  • Powdered sugar (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl.

  2. Beat butter and next 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in chocolate chunks.

  3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

  4. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until puffy. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes; remove to wire racks, and let cool 30 minutes or until completely cool. Spread cookies with Mocha Frosting. Dust evenly with powdered sugar, if desired.

  5. Note: Dough may be frozen up to 1 month or refrigerated up to 2 days. Let stand at room temperature before baking as directed.
