Salted double chocolate cookies

These cookies were a hit.

So much of a hit, in fact, that one of the people who tried the cookies took the rest of the cookies home with them – and then took the cookies on with them vacation.

And here are the cookies:

double chocolate

These cookies are – yet again – another take on my basic cookie formula/recipe.

What’s different?

I added about two tablespoons of cocoa powder along with the sugar. I also added an extra tablespoon of liquid vanilla extract. And about an extra half teaspoon of salt. Adjust the amounts of cocoa powder, vanilla, and sugar to your taste.

You might also want to let the wet ingredients – the oil, liquid, vanilla, sugar, et cetera – sit together in a covered bowl in the fridge overnight. Letting the ingredients sit in the fridge overnight helps the flavours in the cookie dough mix together. Or, at least, that’s what I think.

When it came time to add the chocolate chips, I added about two thirds of a cup total of mixed large and small semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Chocolate just seems to work with salt.
