Featuring floral flavors like lavender and rose, warming spices like cinnamon and allspice, earthy fennel and coriander, and sweet vanilla, honey, and dates, Moji Masala's Sweet Masala makes a stellar and unique addition to these double chocolate cookies. Try it for yourself and be wowed!



1 stick (113g) butter

1 1/2 tablespoons Moji Masala Sweet Masala

1 cup +2 tablespoons (132 g) all-purpose flour

1/3 cup (25 g) cocoa powder

1 teaspoon (3 g) kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon (2 g) baking soda

2/3 cup (150 g) packed dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon (10 g) granulated sugar

1 egg (50 g)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup (100 g) chocolate chips


Brown the butter: over medium heat, melt the butter in a saucepan and allow to brown, stirring frequently. Butter will become quiet as it finishes browning. 


Pour into a large bowl, stir in Sweet Masala, and allow to cool for a few minutes.


Combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.


Whisk both sugars, egg, and vanilla into warm butter/masala combo and continue to mix until lightened 1-2 shades in color, about 1 minute.


Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, fold until a few dry spots remain, then add chocolate chips and finish mixing. Allow batter to sit for a few minutes (it will firm up) while preheating oven to 375°F.


Scoop 2 tbsp balls onto lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until set on top and puffy. (Once you can smell chocolate in the kitchen, check them! This is an indication that they're done)


Cool on wire rack for at least 5 minutes and enjoy!
