  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon pieces
  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped Twix candy bars, about 10 fun size bars
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling on top


  • Place the butter in a medium saucepan and melt over medium heat, stirring often, until it foams, smells nutty, and browns. This will take about 5 to 7minutes. Scrape the browned butter into a medium bowl. Cover and place in the fridge until the butter sets up. It should be soft but not solid. This should take about 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the chilled brown butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined, don’t over mix.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped Twix candy bars.
  • Roll the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, about 2-inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown around the edges but still a little soft in the center.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cookies with flaky sea salt. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.


You can chill the dough for up to 72 hours and then bake the cookies.
