Double Dark Chocolate Cookies with Sea Salt

It has rained every day for the past 5 days. Seriously.

Thursday was the first day with no rain and I thought I might actually cry with joy! Tropical Storm Debby was a total witch and decided Jacksonville was a great place to snuggle in for a few days.


On top of the soul crushing rain, Jorge caught a stomach bug/flu from some guy at his office. So while he has been contaminating my couch all week — and watching feel good movies like Despicable Me — I have been wiping every surface down with clorox wipes like it’s my freakin’ job. I was considering starting to wear a surgical mask, but thankfully he has taken a turn for the better.

Add to that a 3 hour drive down to Tampa to visit my family…only to arrive and find out that my parents AC conked out and we won’t have a repair guy till tomorrow morning. The thermostat read 84° on my last check…I am terrified of what it might read by morning.

Obviously the only answer to all of that…cookies. Big Double Dark Chocolate Cookies that are topped with flaky Sea Salt. When warm, these cookies are gooey and delicious. Cooled, they have a crumbly texture that goes perfectly with a big glass of cold milk. They are the cure all.

Yield: 12 large cookies
