Chocolate Buttons


This is a decadent treat all chocolate-lovers will enjoy.


  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped

  • 2 large eggs

  • ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 5 ounces semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.

  2. Place butter and bittersweet and unsweetened chocolates in a heatproof bowl. Set bowl over a pan of simmering water, and stir until smooth.

  3. With a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat eggs and sugar on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and chocolate-butter mixture. Reduce speed to low. Gradually add flour mixture, and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Let dough stand for 30 minutes.
