Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Recipe from Modern Baking by Donna Hay

These salted chocolate brownie cookies are so good. Chewy chocolate goes perfectly with a little bit of salt and makes this recipe that much more delicious. It’s a pretty easy and timeless recipe to make such a yummy cookie. This recipe does have a lot of sugar so I cut down on it a little as I didn’t want it to be overly sweet. They do expand when cooking so make sure to space them out and not make them too big. These cookies are amazing, thanks to Donna Hay for creating this recipe xx

  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
