Happy Frrrraaaiiidaaaayy!! I have the best chocolate lovers cookie combo for your crazy cats today ( how many C-words, can I use in one sentence)  – or if you’re in a giving valentine-y mood … heeeeellllllooooo chocolate aphrodisiac – I seriously can’t believe I wrote that, knowing very well, that my mom reads this blog.

So I know not too long ago I told you these smoked sea salt chocolate cookies were the bee’s knees … well, I lied. No I didn’t they’re pretty darn-tootin-good ( I annoy me too .. it’s not just you) BUT these cookies are better.

… sorry, I got a little carried away. BUT HOLY MOLY I COULD TOTALLY GO TO TOWN ON THESE COOKIES!!

I actually brought these cookies into my new office, and I had co-workers tell me this was the best cookie they’ve ever had!! Now, that could mean one of two things – either they’re being nice and want me to continue bringing in goodies or they really are stinking delicious.

The secret to this recipe is low and slow … yes, we’re still talking about cookies – stop it! These cookies are baked at 300 oc for 20 minutes – creating a shell exterior and an extremely chewy interior.

 Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, lightly spray them with non-stick spray, and set aside.

Place the semi-sweet chocolate chips and margarine in a small, microwave safe bowl. Microwave until melted and well combined – should take about 20 seconds.

In a medium-sized bowl sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and smoked sea salt and coffee.

In a separate medium-sized bowl whisk together the sugars, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and stir to combine.

Add in your melted butter/chocolate combo.

Add all 3 types of chocolate chips

Lower oven to 300 degrees and scoop batter on the prepared baking sheets, and bake for 20 minutes. Allow to rest on baking tray, for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
