Nina's Triple Chocolate Cookies with Sea Salt Topping

Today I baked these AMAZING cookies, recipe courtesy of my mama. Three chocolates are combined: bittersweet, semi-sweet, and white chocolate. The best part about these is the surprise topping - sea salt. It adds a little salty to the delectably sweet.  The recipe is as follows.
Bake. Eat. LOVE!

Nina's Triple Chocolate Cookies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick)
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 large eggs
1 large yolks
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
6 ounces white chocolate chips (or milk chocolate chips)

Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda together in a medium bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from the heat, add the bittersweet chocolate, then set aside until melted.

Whisk the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla together in a medium bowl, then slowly whisk in melted chocolate. Stir in the flour mixture to make loose dough. Fold in the chips. Cover with plastice wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. (I didn't refrigerate and it still came out great!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form dough into balls (or scoop with a spoon) and put on the prepared baking sheets leaving a couple inches between the cookies. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Bake until outside is crackly, but the center is still moist, about 13-15 minutes. Cool on a rack. ENJOY!
