Dark Chocolate Cookies with Sea Salt

Sometimes I just need a hefty dose of chocolate. I need it to be rich and gooey and delicious. These cookies delivered on all fronts. Plus the kick of sea salt (this is the first sweet that I have added it to up to this point) also satisfied any need for salt I had. These are craving satisfying cookies on multiple fronts. Yum.

Yield: 12 cookies
3 oz chocolate - the darker the better, I used 60%, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
Fleur de Sel (or large-flake sea salt) for topping (A big thank you to Hunter's Dad for supplying me with this!)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Over a double broiler, melt the chocolate then let it cool for 5 minutes. While the chocolate is cooling, mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

Stir the egg and sugar into the chocolate mixture until combined. Add in the dry ingredients and stir until smooth.

Roll the cookie dough into about 1 1/2 tbsp balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle the fleur de sel on top. Bake cookies for 9-12 minutes.
