Description

It’s simple enough. Chocolate is mixed with melted butter, flour, and two types of sugar. Which then gets topped with sea salt and placed in the oven to bake. The final result? A rich, soft, and chewy cookie that’s more like a cookie-brownie hybrid.

Right. And then the whole thing gets shaped into a heart. Absolutely perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces, fluid Milk Chocolate, Melted
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour (or Other Of Choice)
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 7 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted And Cooled
  • ⅔ cups Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Brown Sugar, Packed
  • ⅓ cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt For Topping

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Place chocolate in a heat-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate, either over a double-boiler on the stove or in the microwave in 30-second intervals until most of the chocolate has been melted, stirring constantly to melt the rest. Once melted, set aside to cool.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder together in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Melt butter in a microwave for 20 to 30 seconds, or in a large saucepan over medium heat. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars until combined. Add yogurt and vanilla, stirring together. Slowly add flour mixture and melted chocolate until the batter is moist.

Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Drop cookie batter on the tray about 2 to 3 inches apart. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for 10 minutes or until almost set. Remove from oven and use a cookie cutter to mold cookies into the desired shape. (There will be excess cookie crumbs leftover—my family just ate them up!)

Remove cookies from pan to cool on wire racks. Repeat this step until all batter has been used up. Enjoy!
