These Salted brownie cookies are my go-to when I’m in need of a chocolate fix!
That’s right… I said BROWNIE COOKIES. That is a brownie in cookie form… or would it be known as a cookie as a brownie? Either way these are delicious. Top them with a sprinkle of fleur de sel (fancy salt) and you’ve taken them to gourmet status!
I originally stumbled onto this little gem of a recipe over at Jen’s Favorite Cookie. It was late one night and I had a craving. With no box mix in sight, and only a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips in the pantry, it looked like I had no other choice. I am SO glad I gave it a go and tested this recipe on my picky husband. We are BIG fans of the salty sweet combination and after just a few modifications these cookies nailed the flavors we were looking for. I made a half batch that night and by the time the last one disappeared into my belly I was wishing I would have made a full. After a few adjustments to the original version I decided it was finally time to share the recipe with the world! Or… you. My readers.
