Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies

I live in the bush, so it’s a rare day that anyone ever knocks on the door. But when someone knocks on the door to deliver a box of great chocolate, well … that never happens!

The chocolate was from Cacao Barry, who had sent me a box of their Origine Rare chocolate to try. Their Origine Rare chocolate is single-origin chocolate, each with their own distinctive flavour profiles (just like single-origin coffee). I was thrilled receive their Venezuela 72% cocoa chocolate. Of course, the first thing I did was open the box and eat a few of the chocolate “pistoles” (pistoles are round drops of pure chocolate, that are easy to melt or temper, weigh, and store, and perfect for recipes calling for chunks of chocolate. They are shown in the photos here). Delicious!

I couldn’t wait to bake something with it, but since it was a weekday and I had things to do like, um … work, I needed something that wouldn’t take a lot of time. These cookies fit the bill perfectly.

These are a chocolate lovers cookie. They are full of chocolate flavour, but not overly sweet. The cookie is, of course, chocolate, but they are also studded with chocolate pieces that bake up into chocolate puddles inside the cookie. The salt on the top really enhances the chocolate flavour and delivers that great sweet/salty contrast.

These are lovely served ever-so-slightly warm with a big glass of cold milk. If you, like me, cannot trust yourself with a big plate of chocolate cookies within reach, you’ll be pleased to know that these cookies freeze beautifully. To enjoy from the freezer, just place on a piece of paper towel and microwave for 20-30 seconds.

If you’d like to try this or some other Cacao Barry chocolate, Canadians can buy it online through Golda’s Kitchen or Vanilla Food Company. I’m sure it’s available in larger, fine food stores, as well.
