  • Stand mixer with paddle attachment (optional)

  • sheet pan
  • parchment paper


  • 2 sticks butter softened to room temp
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • flaky salt for garnish

  • Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a hand mixer) cream the softened butter and both types of sugar until it is smooth and light in color.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time with the mixer going, followed by the vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  • Add the baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix to combine.
  • Slowly add in the flour, ½ a cup at a time with the mixer on the lowest setting. As soon as it is incorporated stop, you do not want to over-mix the batter.

  • Using a spring loaded scoop or two spoons portion out golf ball size balls of dough 2 inches apart on parchment lined sheet pans.
  • Bake at 350° for 13-16 minutes until just golden brown. Start watching the oven at 13 minutes to ensure you don't overcook the cookies as the time will vary based on your dough ball size.
  • Sprinkle lightly with flakey salt immediately after removing from the oven.


When baking the cookies using refrigerated dough add 2-3 minutes to the bake time.
