1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla

Chocolate cookies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Fleur de Sel

Directions

Making the honeycomb: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly butter. Heat a saucepan on medium and add sugar and homey. Stir until dissolved and a cndy thermometer reaches 300˚F. Remove thermometer and add baking soda and vanilla extract. Whisk. Once the mixture begins to puff, about 30 seconds, pour it out in a flat layer onto the baking sheet. Let harden for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400˚F

Making the chocolate cookies: In a bowl throw flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Whisk until combined. Set aside. To a stand mixer add egg, raw sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on high speed for three minutes, until smooth and thick. Turn down to low speed and slowly stream in melted butter. Add dry ingredients and mix on low until fully incorporated.

Line a sheet with parchment paper and add heaping tablespoons of dough 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake for 7 minutes. Cool on baking sheets a few minutes. While cookies are still soft, add crumbled honeycomb and press into the cookies. Sprinkle with a pinch of fleur de sel.
