  • 4 tablespoons salted butter (57 grams, ½ stick)
  • 1 pound chopped semisweet chocolate (454 grams)
  • 4 large eggs (200 grams), room temperature
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar (300 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (4 grams)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (60 grams), sifted
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder (2 grams)
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips (340 grams)
  • Crushed peppermint (optional), for topping


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Melt Chocolate: In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (double boiler method), melt the chocolate and butter together, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Beat Eggs and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until thick and pale, about 3-4 minutes. Blend in the vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Chocolate Mixture: Gently fold in the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until just combined.
  5. Sift and Fold: Sift together the flour and baking powder, then fold into the chocolate mixture until just combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Add Chocolate Chips: Stir in the milk chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. Shape Cookies: Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Optional Topping: If using, sprinkle crushed peppermint over the top of each cookie for a festive touch.
  9. Bake: Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set on the edges but still soft in the center.
  10. Cool: Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
