Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder, Dutch processed or unsweetened
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks
  • 3/4 cup chocolate baking wafers or big chocolate chunks, for pressing on top of cookies
  • Sea salt flakes, for sprinkling on cookies

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, sea salt, and cocoa. Set aside.
  • With a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time. Next, add in vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • Gradually add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in the 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of chocolate chunks. Scoop the dough into rounded tablespoons and place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake cookies for 8 minutes and remove the baking sheet from the oven. Quickly press the chocolate wafers or big chocolate chunks gently into the tops of the cookies. Place the baking sheet back in the oven and finish baking the cookies for an additional 2 minutes or until the cookies are set around the edges but still soft in the center.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle the cookies with flaky sea salt. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 3 minutes. Move to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Notes

Store the cookies in an airtight container on the counter for up to 4 days. 
You can also freeze the baked cookies or the cookie dough. See post for tips!
