  1. In a heatproof bowl over a double boiler, melt chocolate and butter until smooth. Turn off the stove and let chocolate sit over warm water.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt and mix to combine. In another bowl, mix together sugar and eggs, combine thoroughly with a whisk and slowly add the warm chocolate mixture. Stir to combine. Add vanilla extract and mix. Stir in flour mixture. Cool for a few minutes (if batter is warm, chocolate chips will melt). Stir in chocolate chips. Chill for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop rounded tablespoons of batter and place on baking tray. Sprinkle each cookie lightly with a pinch of sea salt. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 7-8 minutes until the outside looks slightly cracked. Be very careful not to over bake cookies because they will continue to bake as they cool once removed from the oven. Cookies should be soft and gooey in the center.


  • For a chunky and different twist add one of the following:
  • --3/4 cup toasted pecans or pistachios
  • --1/4 cup chopped candied ginger
  • --1/3 cup sweetened coconut

HEAVENLY!! These cookies are simply perfect. The only changes I made was omitting the sea salt and chilling them for 30 minutes or longer. I had no problems with the consistency of the cookie ba...

These were very, very rich! They were easy to make and I followed the recipe exactly. These cookies are best eaten warm, when the cookie inside is gooey. Once they cool they are like a truffl...

Very Good, def needs alot of milk on the side. I had to use 1/2 cup of flour and finally got a great consistency. Also had to wait until COMPLETELY cooled to get them off cookie sheet without ru...

This is pretty easy to make, just follow the directions and do everything in order. The final result tastes like candy it's so sweet. I wish I put a little more sea salt on them and next time I ...
