Chocolate fudge cookies are a delightful combination simple ingredients resulting in a fudgy, chocolatey goodness that is pure decadence. With a crispy exterior and a soft, gooey center, they make a perfect treat for any occasion.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch Processed if available)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, unsalted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder and salt. Whisk it all together and set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, add butter and 1/2 of the chocolate chips or chunks. Microwave in 30 second intervals until everything is melted.
  3. In a large bowl, add eggs, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Mix with a hand mixer or stand mixer until fully incorporated. Then add chocolate mixture and continue to mix together.
  4. Add flour mixture and continue to mix for 3 minutes until everything is well combined. Gently fold in remaining chunks/chips. Place bowl with batter in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to chill and thicken (important).
  5. Preheat oven to 350°(F) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Scoop out batter and roll into balls (wet hands first!) about 1.5″ in diameter. Place on parchment at least 3 inches apart. With hands still wet, press batter down to about 1/4″ thick. Add additional chips or chunks to tops of cookies.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing from pan.


Gluten free option: substitute a 1:1 all-purpose gluten free flour mix which contains xantham gum, for the regular flour. Everything else will remain the same.
