Soft, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe- Hot Chocolate Hits

Every baker has a staple chocolate chip cookie recipe on hand and today I’m going to show you mine, which is a salted
dark chocolate chunk cookie. These are super soft and delicious and I’m really
excited to share this recipe with you so let’s get started!
To start you want to chop between 150 and 200 grams of good quality chocolate
of your choice, make sure that it’s something that you like to eat by itself. Make sure you take the extra time to chop up your chocolate because it tastes
better and it melts better and if I find out that you have been using the
store-bought chocolate chips or chunks I will hunt you down and make you start
all over again! XD So just set that aside and in this bowl I have 1/2 cup of
soft, unsalted butter to which I’m adding a 1/4 of raw sugar you can use
granulated sugar as a substitute followed by 3/4 of a cup of
packed brown sugar it’s important that you use packed light brown sugar because 1) it adds incredible flavor and 2) it makes these cookies super-duper soft and delicious cream these ingredients together for a good 3-5
minutes or until the mixture is light and fluffy. Now add in 1 whole egg
followed by a teaspoon of good quality vanilla extract which adds a lovely
aroma to the mixture and its signature in chocolate chip cookies. You’re going
to work that in with your whisk. Now you’re going to add in 1/2 teaspoon
of salt. These are salted chocolate chip cookies
after all followed by 3/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda. Soda not
powder, no substitutions! Once you’ve worked those ingredients into the
mixture you’re going to add 1 cup and 3/4 of a cup of all-purpose flour
so you just want to work it in with a rubber spatula or a whisk and once all
the flour has been integrated into the dough you’re going to toss in your
chocolate chunks! At this point you can also throw in some dried fruits, dried
nuts and M&M’s, whatever else you’d fancy; but I’m keeping it simple with
just the chocolate. And once the chocolate has been distributed evenly
throughout the batter you are ready to bake! So using a spoon you can take two
tablespoon mounds of dough and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet,
about two inches apart. And for a final touch I just sprinkle each one with a
little bit of sea salt and what this does is it adds a little contrast to that bitterness of the chocolate and the sweetness of the dough.
And now you’re going to pop the tray into the oven for about 9-11
minutes or until they’ve set and they’re beautifully golden brown. If I don’t want
to bake all the cookies at once I just place some of the dough on a piece of
cling wrap, roll it into a log shape and tightly wrap it up and pop it into the
freezer, and then when I feel like having cookies I can take that log out, slice up
some cookies, pop them in the oven without even having to thaw it(!) and I
will have cookies in no time! 🙂 Once the cookies finish baking I like to transfer
them off to a wire rack, so that they can cool slightly, but I have to admit that
it’s really difficult to resist because these tastes so delicious warm when the
chocolate is still easy and melty. In addition to being BEST tasting cookies
I’ve made, they’re also the prettiest speckled with that sea salt that adds a
wonderful contrast of flavors. When the chocolate is still warm and gooey these
cookies melt in your mouth. They are my favourite cookies, and I hope that they
become yours too! Thank you so much for watching, I really
hope you enjoyed learning how to make one of my favorite recipes, and if you’ve
noticed I’ve been a little bit slow with uploading my videos lately, and that’s
because for some of you don’t know I’m still in high school, and this time of
year is always the busiest so just bare with me for a bit. If you like this video
