These simple Dark Chocolate Salted Cookies are easy to make (no mixer needed!) and have the rich chocolaty taste of an Oreo.
Dark Chocolate Cookies
I love Oreos. But, just like I don’t like frosting, I am in the minority in not liking the creme filling. That makes these cookies perfect for me.
They remind me of Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers, which I love, but these are soft and chewy. Even better.
The sea salt sprinkled on the top is the perfect contrast to the dark chocolate.
I originally published this post October 17, 2012 with the following note:
“I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but I’ll be attending my first blog conference next week. It’s an online blog conference which is pretty perfect for me. Through it, I’ve already met a bunch of very talented bloggers.
I had this recipe pinned last month but found that Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More is attending Online BlogCon too. Besides being an awesome baker, she is so sweet and amazing at spreading blog love and wisdom. I’m happy to have “met” her. “
Sadly, Joan passed away late last year. It was one of those times where the death of someone you never met rocked your world. She was the sweetest person I never had the pleasure of meeting.
Equipment you’ll need
- Mixing Bowl – One large bowl is all you’ll need.
- Cookie Scoop – I have a variety of sizes of cookie scoops.They make the easiest, most uniform cookie dough balls. In this batch, I used a size 50, which holds just over 1 tablespoon of dough.
- Baking Sheets – I like to use a lipped baking sheet so no dough balls roll off and hit the floor. For the best results, line the pans with parchment paper or silicone mats.
