Combine melted (cooled) butter and sugars and stir until well-combined.
Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and stir well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, instant coffee (if using), baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add dry ingredients to wet, stirring until completely combined.
Stir in chocolate chips, if desired reserve approximately ⅓ cup of assorted chocolate chips for pressing into cookies after baking.
Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Once dough has nearly finished chilling, preheat oven to 350F (175C) and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
Prepare cocoa sugar topping by whisking together ½ cup granulated sugar and ½ Tablespoon cocoa powder.
Once dough has finished chilling and oven is preheated, remove dough from refrigerator. Scoop into 1 ½ Tablespoon-sized balls and roll between your palms to form a smooth ball. Roll through cocoa sugar until entirely coated and then transfer to prepared baking sheet. Space cookies at least 2” apart.
Bake cookies in 350F (175C) oven for 11-12 minutes. If desired, gently press reserved chocolate chips into the tops of warm cookies within 1 minute of removing from oven.
Allow cookies to cool completely on baking sheet before enjoying.
¹You can use 1 ½ cups of any blend of chocolate chunks or chocolate chips, this is just the blend that I used. You can also use 1 ½ cups of just one kind of chocolate chip, they'll still be delicious!
