Dark's Kitchen
Yield: 2 dozen

2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
2 C (mini) semi-sweet chocolate chips, or dark chocolate
1 C light brown sugar
1 C (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2/3 C sugar
2 large eggs
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
sea salt, garnish, optional


Preheat oven to 325 F degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter or non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

Place butter in a medium saucepan, over medium heat. Melt, stirring frequently, until browned.

Remove from heat and let cool.

In a large bowl or mixer, beat butter and sugars until combined. Add eggs one at a time.

Add vanilla. Gradually mix in dry ingredients until just incorporated.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour dough into baking dish, smoothing the top.

If using, lightly sprinkle a pinch of sea salt evenly over dough.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan.

Let cool 15 minutes before slicing into bars.
