Salted Dark Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.
Oh My Stars!
These fudgy, brownie-like, dark chocolate, chewy, but crispy heavenly bites may just have you seeing stars!
I saw a photo of these stop-me-in-my-tracks, make-me-wanna-bake, longing-to-get-in-my-belly cookies on ButterandBrioche, but alas the recipe was in metric measurements.
Thank goodness for Convert-me.com!
I’m not quite sure what the addition of ground coffee scientifically does to these, but I do know coffee somehow enhances the true flavor of coffee.
And the sprinkling of flaked sea salt that is just enough to balance the fudgy, chocolately amazingness…. well – all I can say is – you really want to try these!
Here is how I made them after converting:
Salted Dark Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
- 22-24 oz high quality dark chocolate (I like Moser Roth 70% Dark Chocolate, which I find at Aldi)
- 8 Tbsp butter
- 2/3 cup flour
- 2 Tbsp instant or fresh ground coffee
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tbsp water
- Flaked sea salt (Maldon is my fave!)
Melt chocolate and butter in microwavable bowl for 1 minute on high. Stir. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring, until melted and blended. Cool.
Mix brown sugar and eggs with electric mixer until thick and doubled in volume, about 4 minutes. Add the melted and slightly cooled chocolate. Mix until well incorporated.
Add flour, coffee, baking powder, and salt, and mix just until combined. Add water, and mix until combined.
Refrigerate the fluid batter for 15-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Scoop batter with a cookie scoop onto baking stone or parchment lined baking sheet. Once sheet is full, tap lightly 2-3 times on counter to slightly flatten cookie dough. Sprinkle with a little flaked salt.
Bake for approximately 11 minutes. Open oven and tap sheet lightly to flatten a bit. Return to oven for 2 more minutes. Repeat until cookies are firm around the edges and set in the middle with plenty of crinkles.
Cool for at least 10 minutes on baking stone or cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
