  • 115 g unsalted butter cold and cubed
  • 110 g dark brown sugar
  • 50 g granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg cold
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon black cocoa powder
  • 65 g cake flour *
  • 95 g all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 170 g peanut butter chips


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or using an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until combined and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the egg and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add the cocoa powder, black cocoa, flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, and use a rubber spatula to gently fold until just combined. Fold in the peanut butter chips.
  • Separate the dough into four large, 6 oz hockey-puck-shaped cookies about 1.5 to 2-inches thick, then place onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Bake for 14-15 minutes or until the cookies are puffy and the exterior appears set. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for at least 10 minutes to fully set before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.


*Using cake flour makes a more tender cookie but you can substitute all-purpose flour if that's all you have!
