What You’ll Need

Here’s what you’ll need to make these fudgy salted chocolate cookies:

  • Cocoa Powder: I used Hershey’s Unsweetened cocoa powder when testing this recipe multiple times. You could also use Special Dark cocoa powder as well if you prefer a deeper chocolate flavor and darker color!
  • Chocolate Chips: Make sure to use semi-sweet chocolate chips, and not milk chocolate. Milk chocolate will add a little too much sweetness.
  • Flour: All-purpose flour yields the best results when it comes to these cookies.
  • Sugar: I use a combination of light brown sugar and regular granulated sugar.
  • Sea Salt: Flaked sea salt, such as Maldon salt.
  • Butter: Sliced or cubed.
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Baking Powder
