As we head deeper into Autumn, it's the perfect time to try out new recipes. How about this perfect little sweet and salty treat paired with one of our favourite locally-made brews, the Alexander Keith's Lunenburg Coffee & Cocao Stout!
Sea Salted Triple Chocolate Cookies with Stout Glaze
- 1 ½ cups of butter
- ¾ cup of dark brown sugar
- ¾ cup of sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- ¾ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Tidal Salt plus more for sprinkling
- 2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup Alexander Keith's Lunenburg Coffe & Cocao Stout
- 3 1/4 cup powered sugar
For the cookies:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter with sugars and then add eggs and vanilla. Mix. Add cocoa, flour, baking soda, and Tidal Salt. Mix with electric mixer until well combined. Add chocolate chips and fold in. Grease baking sheet and roll cookies into tablespoon size balls. Sprinkle more Tidal Salt on top. Bake 12-18 minutes, depending on the oven.
For the frosting:
Blend stout and powered sugar until creamy. We recommend Alexander Keith's Lunenburg Coffee & Cocao Stout (more info here). Alexander Keith’s Stout adds a layer of rich dark coffee flavors along with deep roasted grain notes that create depth and balance when combined with the sweet and salty chocolate cookie dough. Let the cookies cool and then drizzle with frosting.
Once they are well and drizzled, share with friends or find a secluded place and eat them all yourself, you deserve a treat after all.
