Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies:


      It really doesn't get any better than a glass of ultra chilled milk and a just baked, still warm from the oven, home made, chocolate chip cookie. Actually... that's a lie, there is one thing that would make an already perfect snack even more flavorful and delicious, salt. This is one of my favorite and most utilized ingredients and I am loving the idea of adding a touch of salt to sweet baked goods. Sea salt is the best thing to use as a finishing salt and it's rocky texture balances well with these doughy chocolate chip cookies. I like to follow my favorite (and secret) chocolate chip cookie recipe, roll the prepared dough into tablespoon sized balls and gently dust them in sea salt before baking. I used black hawaiian sea salt for these cookies so you could really see the colored flecks on camera. If you are wanting to kick up the taste and favor on your regular chocolate chip cookie recipe, try adding a bit of salt to finish!













      I know I said I that my chocolate chip cookie recipe is secret (much like my red velvet cake recipe) but I will tell you that if you beat your butter and sugar together until they are very light and fluffy, it will produce a much chewier cookie!


Yours,
Nico

  37. I know one shouldn't knock it until you try it, but salt on a perfectly good chocolate chip I'm not so sure about : ) Might have to take your word for this or perhaps be a bit daring and give it a try. Honestly hadn't heard of black Hawaiian sea salt, will check into this seems like it would have a lot of uses.

  38. I love the mix of sweet and salty! We have a lot of licorice here in Sweden, and right now a favorite of mine is chocolate with pieces of salty licorice in in. Yummy!!! :) xx
