Hello hello! You guys, I have a brand new favorite cookie – no joke. This is my favorite cookie I’ve ever made or even tasted, and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you today! This isn’t just a regular double chocolate cookie… it has delicious flaked sea salt in the recipe itself and sprinkled on top of each individual cookie. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and salty, and always leaves you wanting another!
I love how these cookies bake with little cracks in them… makes them even easier to break apart and enjoy! These are the ideal type of cookies to dunk in a glass of milk.
I recommend whipping up a batch or two of these for any Christmas parties or festivities coming up in the next few weeks. They’re definitely a crowd-pleaser, and easy to make! I’m sure Santa would love coming down a chimney to a plate of these…
They’re absolutely irresistible! Go try ’em and see for yourself. Happy baking!
