- 30 g Caster sugar
- 30 g Water
- 25 g Glucose syrup
- 30 g Cocoa beans
- 15 g Unsalted butter
Put the sugar, water, and glucose syrup into a saucepan and make a light caramel. Immediately remove from the heat, add the cocoa beans and butter.

Preparation time: 10 minutes | Baking time: 12 minutes
- 315 g Plain flour
- 5 g Baking powder
- 4 g Baking powder
- 5 g Fine salt
- 200 g Fine salt
- 220 g Brown sugar
- 100 g Caster sugar
- 70 g Eggs
- 10 g Vanilla extract
- 170 g KOMUNTU 80%
- Fleur de sel
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Cut the butter into cubes.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk, beat the butter, cane sugar, and sugar at medium-high speed for 3 to
5 minutes until the mixture is creamy and light brown. Scrape the bowl. Incorporate the egg and vanilla extract while beating
the mixture. Reduce the speed. Incorporate the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Incorporate the KOMUNTU 80%
chocolate and caramelised cocoa beans. Store the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour to give it a firm texture.
Place the racks into the lower and upper tiers of the oven and preheat to 355°F (180°C) on the fan setting. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
Using a medium-sized ice cream scoop (5cm) or a tablespoon, form equally sized balls. Place 8 to 10 balls onto each tray, leaving enough space between them.
Leftover dough can be stored and baked later, or frozen for up to 2 months. Add a pinch of fleur de sel on top of the cookies. Cook for 12 to 14 minutes, turning the trays halfway through to ensure even cooking.
Assembly and finishing
The cookies must be golden, the edges crisp, and the centre soft.
Leave to sit for a few minutes, then transfer the cookies onto a rack until they cool.
