Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Cookies
These dark chocolate sea salt cookies much like the ones you get from cookie stalls in malls, except better. There’s no chalky aftertaste and the slightly bitter dark chocolate is perfectly offset by flakes of sea salt.
Large mixing bowl
Metal mixing spoon
Non-stick baking sheet
Wire cooling rack
slightly salted butter
white caster sugar (superfine sugar)
medium free range eggs
plain white flour (all purpose flour)
dark chocolate chips (bittersweet)
Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan-assisted).
Put the butter, golden syrup, vanilla and sugar into a large bowl. Beat together until fluffy.
Add the egg and beat again until well combined.
Add the flour and the baking powder. Mix well.
Stir in half (100g / 3.5oz) the dark chocolate chips. You should now have a sticky, light dough .
Take 1 tbsp scoops and place, well spaced, on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Top with 3 or 4 more of the chocolate chips per cookies.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until they just start to go golden at the edges. Aim to get them out before they’re too browned so that they stay chewy when cool.
While still hot on the tray, top the cookies with more chocolate chips and sprinkle with a little salt.
Allow to firm up enough to lift in one piece, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
The dough in these cookies is really quite flexible. Try different flavours of chocolate chips. You could also try adding a scattering of dried fruit, nuts or seeds.
