“Each of these cookies is an intense chocolate moment for when you really need to comfort your soul, or just reward yourself for getting out of bed each day. These soft, dark treats are so life-alteringly chocolatey that you’ll never look at another cookie again.”
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: Makes approx. 30 cookies.
100g caster sugar
100g soft brown sugar
1 tsp salt
200g plain flour
2 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp bicarb
100g dark chocolate, chopped
100g milk chocolate, chopped
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan and line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment.
Cream the butter, sugars and salt together in a mixing bowl.
Sift in the flour and cocoa powder, then add the cornflour, bicarb and vanilla extract. Combine well with a wooden spoon.
Chop the chocolate up into large chunks and stir through the cookie mix.
At this point the dough will look crumbly. Add the egg and stir well and the mixture should come together as a dough.
With your hands, roll the dough into small, golf ball-sized balls. Place around 6 balls on each sheet. They don’t spread too much, so you don’t need to give too much room..
Bake for 10 minutes or until the top of each cookie has formed a crisp crust, then leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
Warning these cookies may induce episodes of chocoholism.
