Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies 5

The cupboards are bare so thought I would track down a new cookie recipe for the kids lunch boxes tomorrow and came across this one in the old recipe books so gave it a whirl and they are seriously yum! The house smells of scrummy chocolately chocolateness and there possibly isn’t anything better than that! My son gives them a 10/10 and my husband said he could not possibly critique until he had eaten a few more…….so I take that as a good sign! 😉

The recipe is a simple one, I doubled it so the cookie jar will remain full for more than one day and I am really pleased with the result

Ingredients

125g Butter, softened
1/3 Cup Caster Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips or Drops
Method

Preheat Oven to 160C

Cream the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until creamy and smooth, it is easier to use a food mixer for this.

Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.

Combine the self raising flour and cocoa and add to the mixture and blend well, fold in chocolate chips to finish.

Grease a baking tray – or I lightly spray it and cover with baking paper – and roll tablespoon sized balls of mixture and add to tray – leaving an inch either side of dough. Gently press the ball with a damp hand – you can add chocolate drops to the top for added fanciness if you desire!

Bake for 13 minutes, the cookies will appear soft when you take them from the oven but they will firm up on standing.

Cool slightly on tray then transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
