Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Two seasons ago, I vowed never to watch The Chew because it had taken the place of All My Children. Did anyone else feel that way? It took some months but I finally decided to give The Chew a try and I found did actually enjoy it. Maybe it's the combo of Clinton and Michael, who knows but it's certainly on my watch list now. Especially since Michael Symon made these babies. Oh my, chocolate molten heaven. They are best straight out of the oven. Delectable gooey chocolate paired with chocolate and sea salt. Yum!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt
Recipe by Michael Symon of The Chew

Ingredients:
  • 1 Stick unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tablespoons Flaked Sea Salt (or more as needed)
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
  • Line baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a medium bowl, gently whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together butter, sugar and dark brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until incorporate.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Make sure not to over mix or cookies will be tough. On the last addition of the flour mixture add the chocolate chips and fold to incorporate.
  • Scoop 2 heaping tablespoons of batter and drop onto baking sheet. For a more uniform cookie measure each scoop and roll into a ball before placing on baking sheet. Place dough 2 inches apart. Sprinkle a generous pinch of salt onto each cookie.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the center of the cookies are just set. For a crispy cookie bake for 2 more minutes. 
  • Let cool slightly on sheet pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

And it's that time of year again! 12 weeks of Christmas Treats! Thank you Brenda from Meal Planning Magic for hosting this blog hop again. I had so much fun last year and I can't wait to see what everybody bakes up. :)

Well, hello again!

 Hello! Hello? Oh hi, so glad you are still here.

So sorry for the lack of posting this spring and summer. I really have no excuse other than I am a bad blogger. Life got ahead of me and some things had to go to the wayside for a bit. I apologize and I plan to back with at least 1 -2 posts per week this fall and winter. :)

But I'm back and just in time for the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies blog hop that starts in a few weeks. I'm so excited to be a part of the blog hop again and see all the lovely creations my fellow bloggers make. :)

Stay tuned for some more cookie, cupcake, and cake recipes this fall.

xo,
