Cook Time 10 minutes
Chilling Time 2 hours
Servings 20 cookies


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup dark, unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 2/3 cups white chocolate chips, plus more for topping


  1. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt.

  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, add the vanilla, then the eggs one at a time. Beat until combined. Then, gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated after each addition.

  3. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips. Cover the bowl and chill the dough for 2 hours, or up to 3 days.

  4. Once dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. Using a cookie scoop, measure out 3 tablespoons of dough at a time and roll into a ball. Place at least 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.

  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes, one batch at a time. Cookies should still look slightly underbaked on top. They will continue to bake and set after being removed from the oven. Immediately press a few extra white chocolate chips on top of each cookie, as desired.

  6. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature.
