  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp espresso powder, optional; espresso powder brings out the flavor of chocolate without adding any coffee flavor
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder (regular unsweetened cocoa powder is fine as well)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate covered potato chips (mine are store-bought, but homemade would work as well)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup mini pretzels, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in both granulated and brown sugars, beating until well combined.
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla extract, and beat until combined.
  4. Add in salt, espresso powder, and baking soda; mix until combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix flour and cocoa powder together. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing until combined.
  6. Add in chocolate covered potato chips, chopped pretzels, and chocolate chips; mix until combined.

  7. With a medium cookie scoop (about 2 Tbsp of dough per cookie), scoop the dough and spread evenly on the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until cookies are done.
  9. Enjoy!
