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.
Smoked Sea Salt Triple Chocolate Threat cookies
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons margarine
1 cup + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon smoked salt
½ tbsp coffee powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
½ cup dark chocolate chips
¼ cup white chocolate chips
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.
Chocolate lovers UNITE!! How perfect would these cookies be for valentines day, instead of a box of chocolates?
