From time to time, I am irresistibly craving biscuits or chocolate… That’s what happened a few days ago, and of course, because I am trying as much as I can to cut off sugar in my diet, there wasn’t remotely anything in my cupboard that could satisfy my addiction. As I saw that I had two half-eaten chocolate bars left, I decided to get baking and prepare some homemade chocolate chip cookies. The recipe was such a success that I had to share it with you!
To make 12 large cookies you will need:
200 g butter
300 g fine granulated sugar
275 g self-raising flour
75 g culinary cocoa powder
half a bar of white chocolate
half a bar of milk chocolate
1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
2. In a large bowl, using a spatula, cream together your sugar and butter at room temperature (take it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before getting on to the recipe). If the butter is a bit too stiff, you can use your electric whisk at minimum speed to soften it and make it easier to mix in.
3. Crack in your egg.
4. Gradually, stir in all the dry ingredients (flour and cocoa powder) and mix together with your spatula until fully incorporated.
5. Using a large knife, cut up the white and milk chocolate into 0,3 in pieces and add them to the dough.
6. Form small balls, slightly flattened, of approximately 1,5 in and pop onto a lined baking tray leaving a bit of space for the cookies to spread out.
7. Pop them into the oven and bake for 12 minutes. When you get the cookies out, they will not look cooked, don’t freak out, it’s normal! Resist the urge to leave them in for longer. As they are cooling down they will harden. If the cookies are overcooked, then they’ll become dry and hard.
8. Leave your cookies to cool down on the tray for at least 30 minutes.
They’re ready ! You can now enjoy delicious, melt in your mouth, chocolate cookies… Bon appetit!
