Homemade Chocolate Wafers

Prep Time1 hr 10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time1 hr 20 mins
Servings: 4 + dozen cookies


  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, in a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Combine the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir until incorporated. Pour in the milk and mix until just combined.
  • Transfer the dough to a clean workspace and form into two 1+1/2-inch logs. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mat. Use a serrated knife to slice the cookie dough into 1/8-inch discs, working with one log at a time and keeping the other in the fridge until ready to slice and bake. Place the discs on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through. Allow the cookies to cool on the pans for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Recipe Note: These cookies can be frozen.
