These cookies are amazing. Crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and so much chocolate flavour.

They’re delicious.

And that sprinkle of sea salt on top just makes them even better. The combination of sweet and salty makes for the perfect treat.

What is the best way to store cookies?

The best way to store cookies is in an airtight container at room temperature. They will stay fresh this way for up to 5 days.

If you want your cookies to last longer than that, you can freeze them for up to 3 months.

Can you freeze fresh baked cookies?

I freeze fresh baked cookies all the time. Most cookies freeze very well.

After baking cookies, let them cool completely, and then freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Defrost them at room temperature.

How to make Salted Double Chocolate Cookies:

  • This cookie dough is very soft, more like brownie batter than cookie dough. Prepare these cookies as a drop cookie, simply dropping the batter by the spoonful onto the cookie sheet before baking.
  • I like to use a 1.5 tablespoon sized cookie scoop to portion out this cookie dough.
  • If you don’t want salt on top of your cookies, you can omit it, but the sweet and salty is pretty amazing, so I highly recommend adding it!
  • Use any kind of chocolate chips you like in these cookies. Our preference is dark chocolate chips.

These chewy, salted double chocolate cookies are quick and easy to make and taste fantastic! Sweet and salty combined for the perfect treat!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 28 minutes


  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Dutch processed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • kosher or flaked sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the chopped chocolate and the butter, and microwave at 50% power for 30 second increments, stirring after every 30 seconds. Continue heating just until the chocolate is melted.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Add the melted chocolate and butter and stir until smooth.
  5. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Add this to the chocolate mixture, stirring until just combined.
  6. Stir in the dark chocolate chips.
  7. Drop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 1.5 tablespoons per cookie, spacing them 1-2 inches apart.
  8. Sprinkle the tops with kosher or flaked sea salt.
  9. Bake for 13-14 minutes until there are some cracks on the surface.
  10. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or freeze them for up to 3 months.


This is cookie dough is very soft, more like brownie batter then cookie dough. Using a cookie scoop or two spoons, they are made as a drop cookie, and will bake just fine without chilling the dough.

AMAZING!! After getting tired of paying $4.50 at the coffee shop I tried making them myself, and it was so worth it! I cooked them a little bit longer to get the beautiful crinkle and they are to die for. Thank you for the recipe, these are such a hit with everyone!!

I never bake and whenever I do it is a gamble, but damn these were good. Brought them to the office and they flew off the table. People said I could be a pastry chef and my Chinese dad said it was ‘like real’. So yeah, it’s a good recipe. It’s the soft kind, but still crunch on the outside.

I followed the directions the first time (with the exception of GF flour) and they were yummy! The second time I used unsweetened baking chocolate and half GF flour/half almond flour. OMG!!! Heaven!

Thank u, Stacey, for this wonderful recipe! I’m not a baker but the instructions were simple. I have shared with others to spread the joy! ????
