Monstrous chocolate cookies with fleur de sel

Portions: 10-12 cookies
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 12 minutes


  • 75 ml (1/3 cup) black olive oil
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) sugar
  • 65 ml (1/4 cup) brown sugar
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 250 ml (1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 125 ml 1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp.) cornstarch
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) fleur de sel
  • 3 ml (1 tsp.) baking soda
  • 1 ml (1/4 tsp.) baking powder
  • 190 ml (3/4 cup) Halloween Reese's sprinkles
  • Edible eye-shaped candy balls, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat oil and sugars at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape bowl before adding vanilla extract and egg, beating well to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, cornstarch, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until a slightly sticky dough forms. Fold in Reese's sprinkles using a rubber spatula or your hands.
  4. Using your hands, form tablespoon-sized balls of dough on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Sprinkle the cookie dough balls with extra Reese's and small candy eyes. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, until puffed but still soft, taking care not to overcook. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with fleur de sel and enjoy.
  5. You'll see, they're frightfully good!
