These cookies are insane. Marvelous, delicious, rich and perfect. What makes them so unique and special is the chocolate I used. It was a package of mixed chocolate disks from Chocoley. Are you familiar with this company? If not, I suggest you get to know them like now! And then, order yourself
a bag many bags of this chocolate cookie blend so that you can enjoy these cookies, too! And, next time you’re in the candy store pick up some chocolate dipped gummy bears, too!!!
THE BEST TRIPLE CHOCOLATE DIPPED GUMMY BEAR SEA SALT COOKIES!!!!
I have a new technique for making extra thick cookies and I have had great success with this…
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. (I use the convection setting but regular will work fine). Chill your cookie dough at least 30 mins but
longer = thicker!
2. Measure your cookie dough to 2 ounces for each mound.
3. As soon as you throw the cookies in the oven, immediately shut the door and lower the temp to 375 RIGHT AWAY. My theory is that the high heat of 425 immediately “sets” the base of the cookie to be thicker!!! Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the tops are getting nice and golden. Will continue to set up while cooling on cookie sheets. This recipe produces a crisp outside and a thick, soft, chewy center!!! REPEAT for the next batch preheating to 425 again.
