Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt

Servings: 2 dozen


  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips for melting into the cookie dough
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips for mixing into the prepared cookie dough
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons coarse sea salt


  • In a heatproof bowl over a double boiler, melt chocolate and butter until smooth. Turn off the stove and let chocolate sit over warm water. Combine flour, baking powder and salt and mix to combine. In another bowl, mix together sugar and eggs, whisk thoroughly and slowly add the warm chocolate mixture. Stir to combine. Mix in vanilla extract. Stir in flour mixture. Allow to cool for a few minutes (if batter is warm, chocolate chips will melt). Stir in chocolate chips. Chill for 10-15 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Scoop by rounded tablespoons onto baking tray lined with non stick baking mat or parchment. Sprinkle each cookie lightly with a pinch of sea salt.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 7-8 minutes until the outside looks slightly cracked. Do NOT over bake cookies because they will continue to bake as they cool once removed from the oven. Cookies should be soft and gooey in the center.

*Notes: Yes, only 1/4 cup of flour. Seems odd, but trust it.

    These cookies are extremely rich and delicious.
