  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugars until light and creamy.
  3. Add the egg, vinegar, and flavor, beating until smooth.
  4. In a separate small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add to the butter and sugar mixture, mixing until well blended.
  6. Fold in 3/4 cup of the chips or chunks.
  7. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets; a tablespoon cookie scoop works well here. Leave about 1 1/2" between each ball of dough; the cookies will spread.
  8. Distribute the remaining chips evenly over the surface of each ball of dough; rather than get baked into the cookies, these chips will provide a nice color contrast to the deep red tops of the cookies.
  9. Bake the cookies for 11 to 13 minutes, until the edges are set.
  10. Remove the cookies from the oven, and cool on the pans.
  11. Yield: about 30 cookies.
