Triple Chocolate Cookies

wpid-20141124_075520.jpgThis simple recipe is both addictive and damn right delicious! (even if I do say so myself!) And personally, they taste even better the next day when they have softened every so slightly …

Ingredients:

  • 110g butter
  • 100g lightly packed brown sugar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • Choc chips or broken cooking chocolate to taste
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of coca powder

Method:

  1. Beat together both the caster and brown sugar with the butter and vanilla essence until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the egg and add to the mixture before beating again (it may curdle to start with, just beat a little longer and it will come back together).
  3. Add the self raising sugar, cocoa powder and chocolate pieces, making sure the mixture is well combined.
  4. Mix everything together with a fork until a soft dough is made.
  5. Put small balls of dough onto greased baking sheets, well apart to accommodate spreading.
  6. Depending on how big you want your cookies will depend on how many the dough makes. I like mine slightly on the larger size, meaning I can happily make 16 cookies. If you like them more as a light bite, you could quite happily stretch the mixture to make about 36!
  7. Finally, bake in a fan oven at 180c for about 10 minutes – this is where you will need to judge for yourself how long they need to go in for depending on how you like them! Personally, 8 minutes is amble of time -you want them to have grown in size and have cracked slightly on the top!

Once you have removed from the oven, allow to firm up for a minute or two, before cooling on a wire rack. Now, storing these bad boys shouldn’t be a problem, a small tin will do! Although if your like me, they may not even last long enough to make it to a tin!
