  • 12 tablespoons melted butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup {or up to 1 cup} mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • {Optional} Candies for tops such as Peanut Butter M&Ms


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.
  • In a large bowl {or the bowl of a stand mixer}, combine the melted butter and brown sugar until it looks like a thick, uniformly-colored caramel {about 2 minutes}. Add the vanilla extract, maple syrup and egg yolks; mix until fully combined.
  • Stop the mixer and add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Mix until it just comes together -- do not over-mix.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.
  • Using a tablespoon sized cookie scoop, drop onto the prepared baking sheets leaving about 1.5 inches between each heap of dough. {You may want to leave a bit more room if you're pressing any candy into the tops as it will cause them to spread a little more.}
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are just set -- they'll still be soft, but they shouldn't be mushy or oily looking. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before transferring to a baking rack to cool completely. {Suggestion -- eat one while it's still warm. Swoon.}
