Decorating tips: While these cookies look great with just a sprinkle of sea salt, you can elevate their presentation by drizzling them with melted white or milk chocolate once they’ve cooled slightly. This not only adds visual appeal, but also introduces an extra layer of flavor. For a festive look, consider adding a sprinkle of edible gold dust along with the sea salt.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (56 g) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces (113 g) semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (99 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (106 g) light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup (80 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (21 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (90 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Sea salt flakes for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Melt the chocolate and the butter :
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 4 ounces chocolate chips and 1/4 cup butter. Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring between each, until completely melted and smooth. Let cool slightly.
  2. Mix the sugars and eggs:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat together granulated sugar, light brown sugar and eggs until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  3. Combine wet ingredients:
    • Stir the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla into the egg mixture until well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients:
    • Sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Fold together with a spatula until well combined, being careful not to overmix.
  5. Add chocolate chips:
    • Stir in the additional 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips.
  6. Cool the dough:
    • Cover the bowl and let the dough chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up slightly.
  7. Cooking preparation:
    • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Form cookies:
    • Scoop out the dough using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop and place the balls on the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  9. Cook:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the edges begin to set but the center is still soft.
  10. Finish and cool:
    • Immediately out of the oven, sprinkle each cookie with sea salt flakes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes to set properly before transferring them to a wire rack.

Enjoy these deliciously gooey brownie cookies, a simple yet luxurious treat that combines the best of both worlds: rich brownies and chewy cookies topped with a perfect sprinkle of sea salt!
