Preheat the oven to 350 degree and Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium, microwave safe bowl- melt the butter in 30 second increments, stirring each time to ensure that it evenly melts.
In a large bowl- whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt.
Whisk sugars into the bowl with the melted butter. Once fully combined, whisk in 1 egg and combine before adding the second egg. Add the vanilla.
Combine the wet Ingredients with your dry ingredients and mix with a spatula until combined. Fold in the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
Option to wrap the dough overnight- this enhances the flavor but its not required. You can also bake right away!
Bake for 10-11 minutes or until slightly golden on top. I always under bake my cookies because they will continue to bake once out of the oven. They may still appear soft but they will firm up! Take them out at this point.
