Giant Chocolate Cookie with Cacao Nibs and Flaky Salt

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

This incredibly delicious and dangerously addictive oversized chocolate cookie is soft, chewy and loaded with milk chocolate and cacao nibs with crisp edges that’s designed to feed a crowd and perfect for sharing. The combination of sea salt, sweet milk chocolate and bitter cacao nibs create an amazing sweet and salty contrast. To make it even more festive and decadent, serve with a large scoop of your favourite ice cream or chantilly cream.

  • 180 g White spelt flour
  • 30 g Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • A large pinch of sea salt
  • 100 g Unsalted butter, softened
  • 100 g Coconut sugar
  • 30 g Vanilla sugar
  • 1 Large egg, at room-temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100 g Chopped milk chocolate (or bittersweet)
  • 30 g Cacao nibs
  • 1/2 tsp Flaky sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Stir together spelt flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. With an electric beater, beat the butter, coconut sugar and vanilla sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, and beat on medium speed until well combined, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in flour mixture, beating until just combined, about 1 minute. Fold in chopped chocolate and 2/3 of the cacao nibs.
  3. Transfer cookie dough to a large sheet of parchment paper. Cover top with another sheet of parchment and roll out dough into a 9-inch round, trimming edge as needed. Remove and discard top layer of parchment and transfer the cookie dough round on parchment paper to a large baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt and remaining cacao nibs, pressing lightly into dough to adhere.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes until just set around edges. Remove the cookie from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into wedges.
