Triple chocolate cookies

Chocolate may not make the world go around but it certainly makes it a happier place.*

And so when I need a little pick me up I make these. After long days at work, one (ok two) of these and a cuppa is enough to restore me back to human status.

Triple chocolate cookies

makes 24 (this is highly dependent on how big you make your cookies )

115g butter
100g caster sugar
115g light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla paste (or extract)
110g plain flour
60g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
85g of chopped white chocolate
85g of chopped milk chocolate

Preheat the oven to 160C/140C FAN. No need to line or grease baking sheets, hurrah!

Cream the butter and sugars together until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla paste and mix until incorporated.

Add the flour, cocoa powder, bicarb, and baking powder to the bowl and mix until nearly combined. Finally stir through the chocolate chunks until evenly distributed. 

Place spoonfuls of dough on the baking sheets, I used my tablespoon as a guide, make sure to space them well apart. Flatten the balls of dough, just a little, with your hands.

Bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes. Once done remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minute or two. Using a palette knife transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling. 

Take care not to overbake these cookies and you will be rewarded with a fudgy middle, not unlike a brownie, yum.

*This is of course my opinion and not indisputable fact.
