Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Pink Sea Salt
Serves: 10
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed (you can use light or dark)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
  • 1½ cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325F and line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  2. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt into a small bowl. Whisk until combined.
  3. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, combine melted butter and sugars. Beat for about 3 minutes until creamy.
  4. Add in egg, egg yolk and vanilla and beat for another 2 - 3 minutes.
  5. Slowly mix in flour by hand or on low speed with your mixer. Lastly, add in chocolate chunks and mix by hand with a spoon.
  6. Chill dough for 30 minutes for easy scooping.
  7. Using a ¼ cup ice cream scoop, place 5 mounds of cookie dough onto baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between the dough.
  8. Top with a light sprinkle of pink sea salt.
  9. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, until edges are crispy and centre is still a bit soft. Remove from oven, let sit for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to baking rack to completely cool.
