This recipe comes from BuzzFeed – I started making these when the recipe was initially published and they were an immediate hit. I made a couple small adaptations by simplifying the instructions, adding milk chocolate chips, and decreasing the sugar. I used a scale to simplify the baking process and ensure accurate amounts.
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar (200 g)
3/4 cup granulated sugar (175 g)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (300 g)
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
flaked sea salt
Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda)
Whisk sugars, and break up well (using fingers if needed)
Add melted butter and mix well.
Whisk in both eggs and mix well, scrape down the sides. Add vanilla extract.
Add the dry ingredients and mix well
Add the chocolate chips and mix well.
Scoop into roughly golf sized balls (I used a small cookie scoop). Place on cookie sheet and refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 3 days (wrapped in Saran Wrap). You can also freeze them at this point and remove from freezer to bake (add 4 minutes to bake time)
Preheat oven to 375˚F. Place dough balls approximately 2 inches apart and top with a pinch of flaked sea salt.
Bake for 11-15 minutes until golden brown.
