Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (not Dutch-process)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
Directions

2 cups assorted mix-ins (such as holiday M&Ms, toffee bits, shredded coconut, peanut butter chips and/or white chocolate chunks)

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, cocoa powder, eggs and vanilla until combined. Stir in the flour mixture with a wooden spoon until just incorporated, then stir in the chocolate chips and assorted mix-ins.

Drop tablespoonfuls of dough about 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets; smooth the tops with damp fingers. Bake, switching the pans halfway through, until puffed and set, about 12 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
