These perfectly delicious, chewy, double chocolate salted cookies are now our go to treat!. If you enjoy salty and sweet you will love these decadent cookies. Perfect for parties, after dinner snacks, or quiet Sunday afternoons. Whatever your pleasure, these cookies will not disappoint!
Recipe Tips & Notes:
- Flaked salt : we used Maldon's flaked salt. Any flaked salt will work here. If you only have coarse salt, reduce the amount slightly, as the salt flavor is more intense than flaked salt. If you are using fine salt, reduce the amount by more than 1/2.
- Sugar: we used both white and dark sugar for added flavor and to achieve the perfect cookie texture! We also recommend using dark brown sugar, as it adds great flavor. If you only have light (golden) brown sugar, you can use this as well, The flavor won't be quite as deep, but it will still taste great!
- Unsalted butter: unsalted butter is highly recommended. If you only have salted butter, you will need to reduce the amount of added salt in the cookie batter. Keep in mind you are adding salt on top the cookie as well.
- Dark chocolate: we used a bar of 70% cacao dark chocolate. If you only have dark chocolate chips or 60% dark chocolate, you can use these as well, however; the deeper the chocolate the nicer the contrast with the salty finish.
- Do not over bake! You want to take them out of the oven when the centers still soft. They will set more once cooled.
- You can freeze the dough, just allow more time for baking.
