  • 1 cup butter softened at room temp
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 to 1 ½ cup chocolate chips of choice
  • ½ cup chopped pistachios optional


  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  • Whip the butter until creamy and add in the sugars, beating till nice and fluffy. This will take 3-4 minutes with a handheld mixer. 
  • Add the eggs one by one, beating well after each addition. 
  • Then add the vanilla extract. 
  • Add the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined and then fold in the chocolate chips and pistachios.
  • Ideally you should let the dough rest in the fridge for a couple of hours – or even better – overnight.
  • Whenever you’re ready to bake pull the dough out of the fridge to soften and preheat the oven to 350. 
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons onto the cookie sheet 1.5-2 inches apart and bake for 8-10 minutes. 
  • Pull the cookies out as soon as the edges look crispier and the centers look set.
