1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp of espresso powder

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

190g all-purpose flour

128g bread flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 semi sweet chocolate bar (roughly chopped)

1 Tbsp flaky salt


Wet Ingredients:

Brown unsalted butter in pan, stirring frequently until butter foams and butter turns deep amber color. Ensure milk solids do not blacken or burn. Chill butter until soft but solid.

Transfer to large bowl in stand mixer and cream until smooth.

Add brown and white sugar and mix until combined.

Add espresso powder and vanilla and mix until combined.

Add 1 egg and mix until combined, add another egg and mix until combined, add egg yolk and mix until combined.

Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl mix the all-purpose flour, bread flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.

Combine Ingredients:

Combine half of flour mixture with wet ingredients and mix until mostly incorporated. Add in remaining flour mixture and combine until flour clumps disappear.

Add in chocolate chips and roughly chopped chocolate bar. Mix until dispersed throughout. Try not to over-mix.

Weigh out and roll 105-110g balls, rip in half, and place rip side up on sheet pan. Place more chocolate chips on top (if desired)

Cover pan with plastic wrap and place into fridge to cool for a few hours or preferably overnight.


Preheat oven to 350 convection bake.

Place 8 balls, rip side up, evenly spaced onto parchment or nonstick lined baking sheet.

Bake for 14-15 minutes.

Sprinkle flaky salt on top after removing from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to finish cooling.


Add semi sweet, bittersweet, milk, or dark chocolate chips/bar as wanted. It is merely a suggestion.
