Things like Steve Madden shoes.
Or a cute little summer dress.
Or vanilla extract. I know, weird.
Yet sometimes I see things that I absolutely must have or my life will never be complete.
Like these cookies.
Dark chocolate. Kahlua. Sea salt. Heaven.
Now go make them!
Salted Mudslide Cookies
Makes 28 cookies
- 2 cups + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp instant coffee powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) of unsalted butter, melted and cooled for 10-15 minutes
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup Kahlua
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- sea salt for topping
Directions: In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients together (flour-sea salt), set aside.
In another bowl, mix the melted butter and the sugars to combine. Add the egg, yolk and vanilla and whisk to combine. Add in the Kahlua and stir. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and with a spatula continue stirring until the mixture comes together. Don’t worry the dough will come together, it will take about 3 mins of mixing and some elbow grease but you’ll be well rewarded! Fold in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate the dough for 30 mins.
Preheat oven to 325F. Scoop the cookie dough into golf sized balls and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 mins or until the edges are set and the top is puffy, Be careful not to overcook these, you want them to be gooey on the inside Once baked, sprinkle with sea salt immediately and let cool for 5 mins before indulging. Enjoy!
