I have just realized that this month has been full of chocolate recipes… I guess I eat more chocolate in the winter 😀 These cookies, found on allrecipes.com, are so easy to bake and very delicious! I ended up making 26 in total, but you could end up with more if you make them a bit smaller. You won’t need more than 40-45 minutes from start to finish.
- 1 cup (225 gr.) softened butter (I used margarine)
- 1 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla powder (I used 1 Dr. Oetker packet)
- 2 cups flour
- 2/3 cup (150 gr.) cocoa powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (approx. 300-400 gr.) chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In one bowl beat your butter, sugar, and eggs. In another bowl mix your dry ingredients (vanilla powder, flour, cocoa, soda, salt) and then add them into your butter mixture. You will eventually have a slightly oily, but thick batter. Then use a spatula to help blend in your chocolate chips and walnuts. Use an ice cream scooper or teaspoon to drop equal balls onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. I had to bake in two batches, because you must make sure your cookies have enough space between them. Bake at 170°C/350°F for 8-13 minutes; my cookies took approximately 13 minutes, but the time might change depending on the oven. Allow them to cool for at least 10 minutes before you remove them from the baking tray, as they are soft and fragile when still hot. That’s all! So easy, right?!
The cookies are a bit crunchy on the outside but very soft on the inside and a fantastic mouthful of chocolate. The walnuts are an added touch to make them a bit different, but you don’t have to add them if you’re allergic or simply not a fan. Everyone liked them so much that they were willing to have a second one immediately after finishing their first cookie!
Side note: I do apologize for the poor photos, it’s hard to photograph when it’s past 22:00. 😦
Until next time!
