A rich, dark chocolate cookie, perfect with or without the sea salt flakes on top.


60gr AP flour

1/2tsp baking powder

220gr dark chocolate cut into chunks

2tbsp butter

2 eggs

150gr Sugar

1/2tsp sea salt

1tsp vanilla extract

1tsp flaky sea salt (optional)


  1. Sift the flour and baking powder together and set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter over a bain-marie. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Beat eggs with sugar and salt in a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on high speed for about 5 minutes. 
  4. Fold in the melted chocolate and the vanilla extract using a rubber spatula.
  5. Add the flour mixture and fold in quickly.
  6. Preheat the oven at 180 C
  7. Fill a pastry bag. If you don't have one, you can use a spoon just as well.
  8. Line parchment paper on 2 sheet pans and pipe small cookies (4 cm diam each).
  9. Add sea salt flakes on top (optional, I don't do it as my kids don't like it)
  10. Bake for 10 minutes until the edges are set, but the middle is still soft.
  11. Let cool completely before transferring to an airtight container.
