Cookie heaven. Dreamy double chocolate cookies that are chewy and incredible dunked in milk. Make them and put a smile on someones face.
Makes approx 20 cookies
200g milk chocolate
240g caster sugar
1 large egg – beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
220g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
Pre heat oven to 200c / 180c fan
Line 3 baking trays. For best results cook each tray separately in the centre of oven so you can keep re-lining the same tray if you wish.
Beat together your butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a large mixing bowl.
Beat in your beaten egg bit by bit and then your vanilla.
In another large bowl sift your flour, baking powder , bicarb and cocoa. Gently fold into your butter mixture along with your snapped up chocolate pieces.
When you have a doughy mixture divide in half, roll into two balls and cling film. Pop in the fridge for around half hour to an hour.
Split the dough between your 3 trays and roll into golf ball sized mounds. Pop in the centre of the oven for approx 10 minutes. The cookies will spread so space at least 2 inches apart.
Allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray as they’ll still be cooking a little when they come out the oven. Best not to overcook them as they won’t be so gooey and delicious.
Transfer onto a wire baking rack to cool a little and serve slightly warm with a glass of ice cold milk.
