No-Bake Salted Dark Chocolate Cookie Bars

Like a fresh-from-the-oven chocolate cookie, only better, these no-bake treats combine the most delicious aspects of a few different desserts. Is it a bar? A cookie? A sea-salt truffle? All of the above. First, you’ll blend a chocolate-wafer crust and press it into a pan. Top that layer with melted chocolate chips mixed with a chocolate spread, before sprinkling the top with flaky sea salt and letting it firm up in the fridge. Cut into bars and serve with a bit more sea-salt sprinkled on top, if desired. These sophisticated bars keep in the fridge for five days (though we doubt they’ll last that long).
