Super Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Sea Salt

Makes ~ 20 Cookies

Adapted from Gjusta via Bon Appetit


2 1/2 c all-purpose flour

1/2 c cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 1/2 c packed light brown sugar

1 1/2 c sugar

1 c + 3 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

2 large eggs

150 – 175 g milk chocolate bar, chopped into chunks

Flakey sea salt for topping


  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.  You can use an electric mixer but I don’t have one so when I make cookies I mix ingredients with a fork or whisk by hand.
  • In a separate, medium bowl, beat or whisk the sugars and butter until combined. Then add the eggs one at a time and continue to combine.  Once combined, add the wet ingredients into the dry and combined.  Then add the chocolate chunks and gently fold into the batter.
  • On a baking sheet or tray that will fit in your refrigerator, roll the dough into golf ball sized balls, cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes, preferably 1 – 2 hours.  Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • When ready to cook, place the chilled cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart, top with flakey sea salt, and bake for 17 – 20 minutes.  You’re looking for cooked edges, soft centers.  Let cool and ENJOY.
