In a recent post I mentioned that I had a go at making Anna's amazing triple chocolate cookies which went down a treat with my friends. They are super easy to make and seriously tasty so I thought it was only right to share this yummy little recipe.
200g unsalted butter
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
three BIG bars of chocolate (white, milk and dark)
a splash of milk
Start by mixing your softened butter and caster sugar in a big bowl then add in your egg. Once it's formed a smooth consistency, sift in your self-raising flower and cocoa powder. Lastly break up your bars of chocolate and throw them into the mix. It will probably be very dry at this point so add a dash of milk just to soften it a tiny bit - you still want the dough to be slightly firm so it will hold shape.
When you're happy with your mixture, take a small handful and roll it into a ball. Lay it onto a tray covered in grease-proof paper and push down gently so it is more of a cookie shape. Make sure to space them out giving the cookies enough room to expand. Once your tray is full, pop it in preheated fan oven at 220°C (200°C for non-fan) for 10 mins. When the time is up, your cookies should still be quite soft so leave them to cool for half and hour.
Someone was pretty happy with their cookie...
If you want to serve it a la Ben's Cookie style then pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds before you eat. No more, no less. This has been trialed and tested by my friend R and she swears by it. The result will be a deliciously warm cookie with oozing chunks of chocolate. Mmm dreamy...
