DOUBLE CHOC-CHIP COOKIES
Prep time 15 mins Cooking time 18 mins Makes 24 cookies
250g dark chocolate 300g cake flour 2/3 cup (60g) cocoa powder ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda ½ tsp salt 250g butter 150g white sugar 150g brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract 2 extra large eggs 300g chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a baking tray. Melt dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Sift flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl. Cream butter and both sugars. Add melted chocolate and mix together. Beat in vanilla and eggs, one at a time, then mix in dry ingredients. Mix through chocolate chips. Dollop rounded tablespoonfuls of mixture on a baking sheet, about 6cm apart. Don’t flatten; they will spread as they bake. Bake for 18 mins or until firm to the touch but still slightly soft; they’ll harden on cooling.
