{Fudgy Dark Chocolate + Sea Salt Cookies}



My little man made these on his school holidays, they are delicious, rich and fudgy, the kind of cookie you can't possibly eat just one of, the kind of cookie that you can't resist, the kind of cookie you can't wait to bake again x enjoy

...the cookies
250g butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 x tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp of your best sea salt
2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup dutch cocoa
200g chopped dark chocolate (we used 70% cocoa)
extra sea salt to sprinkle

Preheat oven to 170.  Line baking trays with baking paper.

Cream butter and brown sugar until pale and fluffy, add in the vanilla extract and mix a bit more to combine.

In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa and salt.

Now add the dry ingredients to the butter and mix to combine, lastly tip in the chopped chocolate and give in one more mix.

Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls, press down slightly and sprinkle with a little extra sea salt.  Bake for 15 minutes then allow to rest on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool.
