In my opinion, there isn’t a chocolate more sinfully pleasing for a cookie than dark chocolate. It’s the perfect combination of sweetness with the sugar, both white and brown, and decadent dark chocolate.

Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Yield: About 40 cookies
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 11-12 min
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 (8 ounce) block dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Shift together the flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl and set aside.
Place the butter, sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Cream together on medium speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Beat in the vanilla and the eggs. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and continue to mix until a smooth batter forms. Turn off the mixer and fold in the chocolate chunks using the spatula.
I like to use a small cookie scoop to scoop out the dough and then roll it into a ball with my hands. Place them about 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for about 11 minutes and if you like the crispy anywhere from 12-13 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.
