Double Chocolate Cookies

Just before Christmas it was my Husbands birthday, normally I like to surprise him with a cake, however, this year it was not going to be that simple. My toddler is not a great assistant in the kitchen and so I would need him to watch her whilst I baked. So I thought I would leave it up to him to choose what he wanted for his birthday and he chose cookies:

Ingredients

  • 200g of Plain Flour
  • 50g of Cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 170g of Butter
  • 200g of Brown Sugar
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 400g of White Chocolate Chunks
Double Chocolate Cookies

Method 

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  3. Sift the dry ingredients together and set aside
  4. In a bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar
  5. When smooth beat in the eggs until light and creamy
  6. Mix in the flour mixture gradually and combine together
  7. Finally add the white chocolate chunks and mix through
  8. Spoon dough onto the baking tray – I used a heaped tablespoon for each – do not flatten
  9. Make sure that each cookie is a few centimetres apart to allow for baking as they will spread
  10. Bake for around 13-15 minutes
  11. Once cooked take out of the oven and leave on the baking tray to cool

I made these and one other type of cookie, I will share that recipe next week, totally almost 70 cookies! It would have actually been quicker and easier to bake a big cake I think. Although I liked the impact of how that many cookies looked in the tin. I thought the other combination of flavours that I made would be my favourite, however I was pleasantly surprised with how these turned out, they were really delicious.

What is your favourite type of cookie? Let me know in the comments.
