Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies


Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Like most people in this world, my kids just love a good chocolate chip cookie. While they like traditional sugary cookies made with milk chocolate chips, as a family we prefer these rich and decadent ones made with dark chocolate chips and flaky sea salt. With each bite, you get loads of chocolate flavor from the higher cocoa content in the dark chips


a burst of salt that brings all the flavors together. Simply magical!

  7. Spoon rounded tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto 2 parchment paper-lined baking sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Remember, cookies expand as they bake!
