I just love sea salt.  With chocolate.  With caramel.  With a green apple.  Well, you get the idea.

I promised I’d bake something other than Brownies (yummy…gooey…oh, sorry)  this weekend and saw this fabulous flaky sea salt and thought…why not?!?!

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix chosen flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugars using the paddle attachment of your stand mixer until smooth.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Add flour mixture about ½ cup at a time. Mix and scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally.

  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
