The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are crispy on the outside yet soft and chewy in the inside. With dark chocolate chunk in every bite and a sprinkle of sea salt on top, these are the ultimate chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever have!

My tips for a better flavor is to have a high-quality dark chocolate and let the dough rest before bake. Chilling the dough helps reduce the spread, enhance the flavors, and bring crispy texture on the edge of the cookies.
