I know there are so many chocolate cookie recipes out there so I just needed to add another. Every blog needs one. These are some thick chocolate cookies that won’t disappoint. I do love thick and chewy cookies! It’s a challenge of mine to always have thick chocolate cookies and I think I nailed this one.
The results are thick, crisp-edged, and soft inside with loads of chocolate chunks! Top off with a faint crunch of sea salt.
Sink your teeth into these yummy salted chocolate cookies! Grab a tall glass of milk to go along with these thick, soft and chewy cookies.
Salted Chocolate Cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw)
- 3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp packed light or dark brown sugar
- 1 large egg at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp fine sea or table salt
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 pound semi or bittersweet chocolate, cut into roughly 1/2-inch chunks with a serrated knife
- sea salt to finish
Heat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together with an electric mixer with a paddle attachment until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, beating until incorporated, and scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat in salt (fine sea or table) and baking soda until combined. Add the flour on a low speed until just mixed. The dough will look crumbly. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
Using a cookie scoop, if you don't have a cookie scoop it's about 1 tablespoon mounds, spacing them apart on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each with a few flakes of sea salt.
Bake for 10 minutes or until golden on the outside but still very gooey and soft inside. Once out of the oven, let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
