adapted from baking bites
these are really yummy! it’s a bit difficult to tell when they’re done baking, though, because you really want to take them out when they don’t quite seem done yet. i waited a liiiittle too long– and while they are definitely delicious, they would be even better if they were a bit softer and more brownie-like. also, i think next time i would add a bit more espresso powder.

- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl. cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by cocoa powder, espresso powder and vanilla extract. Mix ingredients for 1-2 minutes, or until completely combined.
With the mixer on low speed, gradually blend in the flour mixture until no streaks of dry ingredients remain. Stir in chocolate chips.
