– Butter – Brown Sugar – Eggs  – Vanilla Extract

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the room temperature butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Using the paddle attachment, cream until light and fluffy, or about 3 minutes.


Slowly add in the egg and vanilla then mix on low to combine, scraping down the bowl as necessary. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt.


Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix on low, just until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to be sure there are no lumps of butter in your dough.


Once mixed, scoop and roll the cookie dough into roughly 24 1¼" balls and roll in the granulated sugar. Place about 2" apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


Bake in a preheated oven for 7-8 minutes, or until the bottoms and edges are very lightly browned and the tops begin to crack.
