DIRECTIONS

  • Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Whisk flour, salt and baking soda together and set aside.
  • If cocoa nibs are not already broken into small pieces (about the size of the chocolate chips) do this now, or better yet get your baking helper to do this.
  • Cream butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl with a spatula as needed.
  • Add eggs, vanilla and water. Beat to combine and scrape sides of bowl.
  • Add dry ingredients and stir together just until combined.
  • Add chocolate chips and cocoa nibs and stir just until combined.
  • Use two spoons to drop dough onto cookie sheets, at least 1 inch apart.
  • Bake, reversing position of cookie sheets halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown but not quite set in the centers, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Cool on racks.
