Delicious, chewy, dark chocolate chunk cookies. Easy recipe to follow.


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 & ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 1 bar (275g) of dark baking chocolate coarsely chopped – I used Scharffen Berger Unsweetened Fine Artisan Dark Chocolate
  • ⅛ cup turbinado sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a mixer with a paddle attachment, combine softened butter and all sugar. Mix on medium-high speed for about 3 minutes or until the butter and sugar are sufficiently mixed and creamed together. You may need to scrape down the mixer bowl intermittently. 
  3. With the mixer still running at medium speed, add egg, vanilla, salt, and baking powder. 
  4. Lower the speed to low-medium. Slowly add in flour. 
  5. Lastly, add in coarsely chopped dark chocolate. Mix until everything is well combined. 
  6. Take about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball. Lightly pat so it is flattened. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. 6 cookies will fit on a sheet. 
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle turbinado sugar on top, lightly patting it into the warm cookie. Transfer to cooling rack. Repeat steps for the second batch. Enjoy!
