Ingredients

  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 cups of All-Purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Directions

  1. First add the sugar, cacao, and unsalted butter to a large bowl and mix well. This is an important part of the process – allowing the butter-sugar mix to cream beautifully when whisking it. So whisk until the mixture turns lighter in color and clearly starts to become creamier.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix well.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the wet mixture and mix well to ensure the salt and baking soda have spread evenly. Chocolate Cookie Batter
  4. Add the chocolate chips to the wet mixture and mix well.
  5. Cover the cookie dough and allow it to rest in the fridge for at least an hour. This will allow the fat within the cookie dough to solidify and encourage a far greater result when baking it in the oven. Chocolate Cookie Dough
  6. 20 mins before you remove the cookie dough from the fridge you must preheat your oven to 190 degrees celsius. Prepare your oven tray by lining it with a baking sheet OR butter and then dusted with flour. When you’ve removed the cookie dough from the fridge you can make 2,5cm/3cm sized balls and place them on the tray but ensure that they’re are evenly spread. You’d rather want to bake in batches than having them bake into one another in the oven. Chocolate Cookies with Chocolate Chips Dough
  7. Bake each batch for about 10mins or until golden brown, this will allow for a softer cookie but. I like my cookies to be a little crispier so I allow them to bake until they’re a deeper golden brown (about 13-15mins in the oven). You’re the Chef so this is where you decide what YOU like! Remember to place the cookies on a cooling rack and allow them to cool before placing them in a container (if there are any left by then because we can’t help devour the whole batch within an hour or so!).
