For the cookies

  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 240 g sugar
  • 70 g unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs cold
  • 140 g all purpose flour


  • 100 g dark chocolate (60 or 70% cacao) in chunks or chocolate chips of your choice
  • coarse sea salt to sprinkle on top


  • Place the butter, sugar, cacao, salt and vanilla essence in the bowl where you're going to beat them later.
  • Place the bowl on a bain-marie without touching the surface of the water. Leave it there until everything is melted. Mix it together every couple minutes.
  • Remove the bowl from the bain marie and wait 5min for it to cool down a bit.
  • Mix using a stand or hand-held mixer and add the eggs one at a time. Mix until fully incorporated.
  • Add the flour and mix for 3 min on high speed.
  • If the batter looks liquidy, place it in the fridge for an hour.
  • Use a cookie scoop (like an ice cream scoop, only smaller) to place the dough on the tray lined with silpat or baking paper. You can also use a generous tablespoon.
  • Take to a preheated oven at 180C for 8-10min. When you take them out they'll be really soft and you think they need more time but they're ready!
  • Push the chocolate chunks or chips down onto the cookie. They will melt with its heat.
  • Sprinkle salt on the cookies.
  • Wait for them to cool down for 10min and then remove them from the tray.
