Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt in a bowl.

  • Place butter in a saucepan over low heat and cook until melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chocolate chips and stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat.

  • Combine brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Pour a small amount of the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and stir until well combined. Slowly add remaining chocolate mixture, stirring constantly so the eggs don't curdle. Fold in the flour mixture until just combined. Do not overmix.

  • Drop 6 large scoops of batter about 2 inches apart onto each of the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies have spread and flattened to a diameter of 4 1/2 inches or larger, and the tops are crinkled and puffed, 12 to 14 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with sea salt.

  • Place baking sheets on a wire rack and cool for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove cookies with a spatula onto serving platter.

Meh. I tried a variety of ways to do this - adding the salt before baking, adding the salt after baking, and adding no salt. They were okay, nothing special. I won't be making them again. Read More

It was delish!! I made a double batch of them, and with the scoops I had it made 36 cookies. I made a few adjustments with what I had in the house: I used Dutch process cocoa (Turned out great!) and I added about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the batter. Loved the chocolate overload! Last note: Make sure you do spray the baking sheets like stated, as I didn't and... it was a struggle to get them off to say the least! All in all they tasted great, I definitely will be making them again! Read More
