  • 1 cup unsalted grass-fed cold butter cubed I like Kerrygold
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar don't use dark use light
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 cups cake flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cups dark chocolate chips I like Guittard 63%



  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, cake flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk, Set aside.
  • Cube cold butter.

Make the Batter

  • In a large bowl, combine the butter, light brown sugar, and white sugar.
  • Using an electric mixer, cream the ingredients together until well combined. This process will take 4 minutes. Start at a slow speed and gradually speed up.
  • Now add 1 egg at a time.
  • Mix well until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Add the flour to the butter/sugar mixture in 3 batches.
  • Mix, but do NOT over mix.
  • Add chocolate chips. Fold them in and mix well. It’s an arm workout.

Refrigerate & Bake

  • Now using a large ice-cream scoop.
  • Scoop the cookie batter onto a plastic wrap. You want to form 8 large balls that resemble the size of a tennis ball. Yes, tennis ball. Alternatively, you can weigh them and form 8 balls. Each ball should be 6 ounces.
  • 3 Wrap the cookie dough balls with plastic wrap and refrigerate them for 12 hours.
  • The next day, place the cookie batter onto a baking tray. Make sure the cookie dough is at least 2 inches apart so they can spread. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Do NOT overbake them so they remain gooey. Note: I baked 4 cookies, and froze the remaining 4 cookies for another time.
  • Once the cookies are out of the oven, LET THEM COOL FOR 10 MINUTES. They will firm up slightly. Indulge. It's like molten cake.
