Preheat to 350F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, cardamom, and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Mix to combine. gradually add flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.
In a small bowl, mix together 1c sugar and 1/2t cardamom. Scoop a ball of dough with a cookie scoop and roll the ball in the cardamom/sugar mixture until ball is coated. Place on baking sheet and smoosh a little with your hand. sprinkle more of the cardamom/sugar mixture on top if desired.
Bake about 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet.
