1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees.
2. Put the butter, sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attatchment. (You can use a hand mixer if you allow the butter to soften at room temperature before beginning.) cream on low speed until the mixture is uniformly blended, with no pieces of butter remaining, 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Add the cocoa, egg, and vanilla. Mix on low for 1 to 2 minutes, then stop and scrape with a rubber spatula. Mix on low speed until the mixture resembles chocolate frosting, 2 to 3 minutes. Stop and scrape, then add the milk and paddle for 30 seconds for the milk to blend in.
4. Put the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl and stir together with a fork or whisk. Add to the mixer bowl and paddle on low speed until well mixed, about 1 minute. With the mixer running on low speed, add the chocolate chips and mix until it is evenly distributed, about 1 minute. (The dough can be wrapped in a plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to a week or frozen up to 2 months. Let it come to room temperature before proceeding with the recipe.)
5. When ready to bake the cookies, break the dough into small pieces and roll between the palm of your hands to form 24 meatball-size balls. Place on 2 nonstick cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
6. Bake until the cookies are flat and hot, 13 to 15 minutes. The cookies will look underdone, but will gently finish baking after you remove them from the oven. Do NOT leave them in the oven for more then 15 MINUTES, no matter what. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven. As soon as the cookies can be moved, use a spatula to transfer them to a rack and let them cool.
The cookies can be kept in an airtight container in room temperature for up to 3 days. You can continue to eat them for up to a week, but they will harden after 3 days. If you want, you can soften them by warming them in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds on the "high" setting.
