The ingredients you’ll need to make these Levain Style Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Butter – I used softened unsalted butter.

Sugar – I used granulated sugar but caster sugar would work too.

Eggs – I used large eggs.

Cocoa powder – it’s important to use really good quality cocoa powder here and make sure it’s unsweetened cocoa powder.

All-purpose flour – otherwise known as plain flour.

Cake flour – this is a much lighter flour that is lower in gluten and results in a light cookie.

Baking soda – also known as bicarb soda.

Cornstarch – also known as corn flour.

Salt – I used fine salt.

Peanut butter Chips – You can use any flavored chocolate chips for this cookie. White, milk, or dark chocolate will also work.

Ingredients

Levain Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups peanut butter chips


Instructions

Levain Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Preheat your oven to 200°C / 410°F. Line three baking sheets with baking paper. Set aside.
  • Add the cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt to a small mixing bowl and use a whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Add the butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Use an electric hand mixer to cream until pale and fluffy. About 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time and mix each time until well combined. You’ll want to scrape down the bowl before you add each egg. Add the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon or spatula to mix everything until a dough forms and no dry ingredients are showing. Add the peanut butter chips and mix until evenly distributed in the dough.
  • Use a large ice cream scoop (holds 3 tbsp) to double scoop balls of dough. So all up the dough balls will be 6tbsp in size. You don’t want to shape these into balls, leave them a rough ball shape but flatten slightly before baking. Add 4 cookies on each tray before baking. Bake for 7 minutes. Cookies will be very fudgy and soft when they come out of the oven. Let them cool completely on the tray before serving.
