Just make them, eat them, and don't ask questions.

Serves: Makes 7 fairly massive cookies
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cup (280g) unsalted butter
  • 1¼ cup (240g) brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. (225g) white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. (10ml) vanilla
  • 1¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • 3½ cups plus 2 tbsp. (445g) all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ lb. (565g) dark chocolate, roughly chopped (you want the chunks to be pretty large so they melt into giant pools of chocolate)
Instructions
  1. Cream together the butter and both sugars.
  2. Add in the eggs and vanilla, stirring until combined.
  3. Add the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well incorporated.
  4. Add the flour and stir. Once it is almost incorporated, add in the chocolate. Stir until just combined but don't overwork it.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 24h (it holds well for up to 5 days).
  6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350F.
  7. Portion dough into 120g balls and place on a parchment or silpat lined cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden. You want the cookies to be nicely browned around the edges but still underbaked and doughy in the centre.
  9. Cool for about 10 minutes before shoving in your face hole (seriously, do this, otherwise you will burn your mouth on scalding hot chocolate. Trust me, I speak from experience).
