Expert Tips

  • Sprinkle a little flaky sea salt on the top of these cookies right before baking for a salty finish to these deliciously chocolatey cookies.
  • Freeze any unused dough so you have ready-to-bake cookies for the next time you want to indulge. Drop your dough as directed onto your cookie sheet but instead of baking them, cover the dough and place the tray in your freezer for 20 to 30 minutes or until the dough is frozen. Take your frozen cookie dough balls and transfer them all to a freezer-safe airtight container. When you are ready to bake your dough, take the frozen cookie balls out of the container and let them sit on the counter for about 15 minutes until thawed. Bake as directed and enjoy!
