  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl add all the ingredients, but except the chocolate chips. Using a spatula stir everything well until all is combined and the dough is smooth.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Roll balls of dough. It’s about 1.5 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Place 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
  • Press fork into the tops to create the criss-cross pattern. Probably the dough will crack a little. You just have to re-seal some cracks by simply smooth it out with your fingers. But know that it’s totally fine to have a few cracks.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until very lightly golden. Allow the cookies to cool completely before handling.
  • While the cookies are in the oven, place some chopped chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and stir. Return it to the microwave and repeat, stopping to stir every 15-seconds until the mixture is totally melted.
  • Dip half of cookie into the melted chocolate and let the excess run off.
