Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powders, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and sugars on med-high until light and fluffy (approx. 2-3mins). Reduce speed and add egg and vanilla. Beat until combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Add butterscotch chips and mix until just combined.
  • Chill dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Using a medium cookie scoop, portion dough onto baking sheet lined with parchment (I did 9 cookies per sheet). Bake for approximately 10 mins, or until the middle is mostly set. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
  • Cool on pans for 5 mins then transfer to to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

* If you don't have black cocoa you can substitute Dutch-processed. The cookies won't be as dark though.
** You can substitute any kind of chips you like!
