Maldron Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate and sea salt. The perfect pairing in my world.

There’s something about the sweet and salty combination that can easily fill any craving I have, so, although not a guilt-free treat, this recipe for Maldron Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies is my personal favorite.

maldron cookies


  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt (I’ve moved away from using table salt, here’s some reasons why)
  • 1 cup of butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Maldron salt


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and 1 teaspoon fine sea salt; set aside.
  • In a mixer, cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs. Blend well.
  • Half cup at a time, pour in your dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Add mini chocolate chips (this is my preference as I feel like the mini chips better distribute the chocolate flavor into each bite) and fold in with a spatula.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and pour Maldron salt onto a small plate.
  • Begin rolling your cookie dough into balls and press each ball into the Maldron salt on one side.
  • Place onto cookie sheet, salt side up and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Allow your cookies to cool, briefly on the sheet and then on a wire rack or serving plate. Then, enjoy!

I hope you love the sweet and salty mix as much as I do!
