Double Chocolate Cookies

Double Treat
Theme: Kid’s Delight – Chocolate Dishes
BM#85 Week 2 Day 2

   I often bake chocolate cakes, cookies and muffins for my niece and nephew. Whenever hubby and I visit his uncle, I take either cookies, muffins or cakes for the kids. For my nephew its the more chocolatey the better. I still remember when he was in hospital with dengue fever, he wanted to have chocolate cake and asked me to put chocolate pieces in them. That’s how much he loves chocolate. The next few days the only food he’d eat was cake. My niece now tries out some of the cakes that are on my blog. Its such an overwhelming feeling; the niece that I used to bake for now bakes for her family. 

   When I chose the chocolate theme, I didn’t have any specific recipes in mind. I then realized that though I bake a lot of cookies, I don’t have  chocolate chip ones on the blog. I baked these cookies and immediately took photos as they were fast disappearing. I had to hide some of them for my niece and nephew. Who was the cookie thief? Hubby dear. 
These cookies are so easy to make and you don’t need to roll them or shape them. Just put blobs of the dough on the baking tray and you get lovely double chocolate cookies. Aroma of freshly baked cookies is heavenly. So go on put on your apron and get baking. Get your kids to help you to bake them…they are that easy!

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Makes about 35

1 cup plain flour (all purpose flour)
½ cup brown sugar
60g (approx. cup) soft butter
¼ tsp soda bicarbonate (baking soda)
¼ tsp baking powder 
½ cup chocolate chips (milk or dark)
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup chopped nuts (any of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup milk

extra chocolate chips for topping – about ¼ cup

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Line a baking tray with some parchment paper or grease it with some butter.
  3. Sift flour with baking powder, soda bicarbonate and cocoa powder.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and nuts into the flour mixture and mix.
  5. In another bowl, add sugar and butter.
  6. Cream it till its soft and light in colour.
  7. Add milk and vanilla extract and mix into the butter sugar mixture.
  8. Add the flour mixture. 
  9. Mix till the flour becomes wet. Don’t over mix.
  10. Using a tablespoon scoop up the dough and with the help of a teaspoon drop it onto the prepared tray.
  11. Make sure they are spaced, about an inch apart as the cookies will spread during baking.
  12. Top the spooned batter with some chocolate chips or nuts.
  13. Bake at 180°C for 10-15 minutes.
  14. Remove the tray from the oven.
  15. Let the cookies rest on the tray for 5 minutes.
  16. Then put them on a wire rack till they cool down completely.
  17. Enjoy with a glass of milk.
  18. Store them in an airtight container.
Tips:
  • The batter should be much like cake batter.
  • These cookies are not the typical crispy kind.

    Chocolate and then Double Chocolate – I dont know about the kids, but I certainly am hooked! Absolutely delicious, loaded cookies that are super easy to make too. All the ingredients as i can see from the recipe, are readily available at home too. Sheer treat for the kids and adults (if I can speak for myself) too.
