Salted Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut & Potato Chips

4 Comments

I get a request almost every week from Miles’ co-workers for my Chocolate Chip Cookies. I didn’t think it was possible to improve upon the recipe, until this happened…

I’ve been learning about salty/sweet combinations in my baking class,¬†which is what inspired me to make a few additions to my chocolate chip cookie recipe.

A handful of potato chips, coconut, two different types of chocolate, and a sprinkle of sea salt are what make these cookies a little different and a lot addictive.

This recipe is based on a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have used time and time again, so that I have it memorized at this point, but originally came from here.
