14 Tbsp. butter (1 3/4 sticks)
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1-2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place butter and unsweetened chocolate in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for several minutes on 50% power until melted. Whisk to combine. Add the brown sugar and the cocoa powder. Whisk well until smooth. Let the mixture cool slightly. Add egg and egg yolk, whisking well again. Add the vanilla.
Whisk the dry ingredients and add them a little at a time and whisk well between additions. (You may need to switch to a wooden spoon towards the end. Add the chocolate chips.
Use a small ice cream scoop (1 Tbsp. size) or two spoons to drop tablespoon size balls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake cookies for about 8-9 minutes. (Check a little before just to make sure...) The cookies will look dry on top, but will be soft in the middle.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet and then remove to a cooling rack to let the chocolate chips set before storing.
