I’ve been unwell lately, including a 2 week stay in hospital (I’ll save that for another post). Since having been home for 2-3 weeks now, today was the first day I really had the energy to bake. So, unashamedly I decided to make these Extreme Chocolate Cookies for our gorgeous children and my wonderful hubby, who has taken THE BEST care of me. I really do love that man.

I know that I’ve said it before, but baking or cooking for others, especially my family, is one of the ways I like to show my love for them. While chocolate is not my go-to favourite Cookie. Since I favour nutty, fruity, oat cookies. Yet I obviously had to try one of these and they are my favourite chocolate cookies to date!

Recipe : Makes 18 Extreme Chocolate Cookies

225g/8oz Unsalted Butter softened

150g/5oz Dark Soft Brown Sugar

1 Large Egg at room temperature

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract – I use Nielsen-Massey

1/4 tsp Sea Salt -I use Maldon

225g/8oz Plain White Flour

50g/2oz Cocoa Powder – I use Callebaut

1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

100g/4oz White Chocolate Chunks

150g/5oz Milk Chocolate Chunks

Method : Preheat oven to 170C/150C fan

Making the cookie dough

  • First of all, in a large bowl add the butter, sugar and salt. Whisk until well combined and fluffy.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract to the whisked butter/sugar.

Shaping and baking the cookies

  • Take approximately a tablespoon of mixture, roll into a ball shape and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat until all the mixture is used.

  • Wash your hands, they WILL look like you’ve been making mud pies! Now using your fingers squish the cookie balls, they will still spread a bit whilst cooking.
The finger marks leave a pretty pattern even once baked!

  • Finally place the baking sheets in the oven and bake for 15-20 mins. I rotated my baking sheets halfway through the cooking process so that the cookies baked evenly. This is fine with cookies NOT cupcakes!
  • As soon as the cookies are baked remove from the oven and allow the Extreme Chocolate Cookies to cool on the trays for 5 mins, then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
Inhale deeply. The smell of baked Extreme Chocolate Cookies is gorgeous!

While the cookies cooled I sent the children a text (at school – rebel mummy!!!) and put the kettle on for a lovely cuppa!!

Finally I can’t tell you how good it feels knowing I’m getting back to being me. Sooo good.
