As you may already know I absolutely love baking and I’m always tweaking recipes each time I bake so that whatever I’m making is even more delicious than the last time! I perfected my double chocolate cookies quite a while ago now and after making them again this weekend I just needed to share the recipe with you.
You will need:
70g cocoa powder
270g self-raising flour
100g bar of milk chocolate (I love to use Cadburys)
100g bar of white chocolate (I love to use Milkybar)
- Preheat your oven to 200C and line baking trays with parchment paper ready.
- Mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Beat egg then add to the mixture.
- Sieve the flour and cocoa powder then mix.
- Break up the chocolate until chunks and add. I use my hands for this part as it’s much easier.
- Divide the mixture into 8 small balls and place on the baking trays. These do expand quite a lot and make large cookies to make sure that there is enough space between them all to all for this.
- Baked for 12 minutes then leave to cool. They won’t look cooked properly when they first come out of the oven but don’t worry they are, which is why you need to leave them to cool.
These cookies turn out delicious and gooey! Add your favourite chocolate and experiment by adding bits of Crunchie, Daim or Caramel. There are so many different ways which you can add your own twist to this recipe. Now I’m going to go and enjoy a cookie with a cup of tea curled up on the sofa!
