Chloe watched as I sprinkled salt over freshly-chocolate-dipped cookies and asked incredulously: why salt?! It would make more logical sense to sprinkle more sugar on top of a cookie, rather than salt, especially to the mind of a 9 year old.

This launched us into a scientific discussion about the funny little phenomenon that happens in your taste buds when salt meets sweet.

Salt makes the cookies taste sweeter. And more delicious :-)

Enjoy this recipe for beautiful, chocolate-dipped cookies that’s perfect for sharing and gift-giving this holiday season. It’s also perfect for making on a lazy weekend to simply enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
