Savoury & sweet combinations are superior and I will die on this hill. Okay, but seriously, I’m a huge fan of the duo—and I contemplated calling these “movie theatre cookies” because it’s really just a combination of my favourite snacks I like to eat when I watch movies. Enjoy!


  • 3/4 cup (150g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 30ml instant coffee dissolved in hot water and then cooled (this is to replace the evaporated liquid when browning butter)
  • 1 egg
  • splash of vanilla essence/extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cup (185g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • potato chips (I used regular salted chips but feel free to use whatever you like)


  1. Over low heat, melt butter over the stove. While whisking, continue to cook butter until it foams then subsides. The butter will eventually become lightly browned and specks will form at the bottom of your pan. It’s done when it has a nutty aroma—pour it into a bowl to avoid cooking any further and burning.
  2. Combine brown butter, instant coffee, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a bowl and stir together.
  3. Add in egg and vanilla essence/extract, and stir until smooth.
  4. Sift flour and baking soda into wet ingredients and gently fold in. Take care not to over mix, which will result in too much air incorporated into your dough—resulting in flat cookies.
  5. Fold in your chocolate chunks and potato chips. Take care not to crush the chips too much, because we want large crispy chunks throughout our cookie.
  6. Cover and chill dough in the fridge for at least 15-20 minutes, then preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  7. Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop out mounds of dough onto a baking sheet, leaving at least two inches between each cookie. You can also add extra chocolate chunks and potato chips to your cookie dough mounds.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges of your cookies are browned.
  9. Let cool (they’ll fall apart if they’re piping hot, but you can enjoy them while warm) before eating.
  10. You’re done!
