Double Choc Chip Cookies

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, well what more can I say! Highly indulgent for those days when you want a serious chocolate fix. What I love about home baked cookies is the rustic look to them, the rough and uneven edges and no perfect circles, not to mention the divine aroma the wafts around your home whilst baking!
So go ahead and indulge yourself, bake and then sit back with a cup of tea and forget your cares, while you savour every bite of this decadent piece of chocolate heaven! :)


125g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
150g Plain flour
1 tspn Bicarbonate of soda
125g soft butter
75g light brown sugar
50g white sugar
1 tspn vanilla extract
200g dark choc chips or chunks
100g white choc chips
1 egg


1. Pre heat oven to gas mark 4.
2. Melt chocolate over a pan of simmering hot water, make sure glass bowl is not touching water. When chocolate has melted remove and allow to cool.

3. In a bowl sieve all the dry ingredients, flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda. set aside.

4. In another bowl cream together the sugars and softened butter till light and fluffy. Then slowly add the melted chocolate. Continue to beat till well combined.

4. Add the vanilla extract and egg and beat together.

5. Now begin to add dry ingredients bit by bit.

6. Next add choc chips and mix well with a wooden spoon until dough comes together.

7. Now using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop, scoop up and place on a baking tray with a lined baking sheet. Spread them out, make them in batches if need be, do not cram them all onto one tray, give them room to spread.

8. Bake for 15-18 mins. No more, do not worry if they look under baked, they need to be gooey from inside.
9. Leave to cool for at least 1o mins before transferring to a cooling rack.
