  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Coarse sea salt for sprinkling


  • Be sure to use coarse sea salt for sprinkling, as fine salt will dissolve too quickly and not provide the desired effect.
  • Leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and granulated sugar until well combined.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and whisk until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of coarse sea salt.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the tops are cracked.
  10. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
