So pretty much everything is better with sea salt on top right? Well, at least these chocolate chip cookies are. I mean, this is pretty much identical to my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, the only difference is the addition of sea salt. But these chocolate chip cookies with sea salt are seriously so good, they deserve their own post.

It takes these cookies to the next level and makes them even more amazing than they already are to start with. So if we’re being honest, these chocolate chip cookies with sea salt are actually my favorite chocolate chip cookie.
The combination of the chewy cookie with a slightly crisp edge, stuffed full of sweet creamy milk chocolate chips (Guittard is the best!), and then just a little bit of saltiness with the sea salt on top. The salt brings out the sweetness of the chocolate chips. Its perfection my friends. And you’ve gotta have the coarse sea salt to add just the teeniest bit of crunch to your cookie.
