2/3cupDutch-processed cocoa powder
1cupunsalted butter,room temperature
1cupfirmly packed brown sugar
1cupwhite chocolate chips
1 ½cupssemisweet or dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the room temperature butter until smooth and creamy. Add both sugars and continue beating at medium speed, until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla and almond extract and mix well. Add the flour mixture and continue mixing just until combined.
Add the chocolates and almonds and mix until combined.
Using a tablespoon or a medium-sized cookie scoop, drop the dough two inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.
Cool cookies on baking sheets for 1-2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies should be very soft when they are removed from the oven. Cookies will firm up as they cool.
