These are by far the most amazing chocolate cookies I have ever tasted. They are insanely chocolatey. The kind that melt in your mouth and shoots you up to chocolate heaven! :D Not only that but your house will smell divine while they are baking!
- 175g plain flour
- 30g cocoa powder (I use Perugina, divine!)
- 1/2 tbsp. baking soda
- 150g butter, room temperature
- 120g light brown sugar
- 50g castor sugar
- pinch salt
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 100g dark chocolate, chopped coarsely (good quality)
In a large bowl, beat the butter until soft and creamy. Add the two sugars, the salt and vanilla extract and beat until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl, sift and mix together the flour, cocoa and baking soda. Add the flour mixture and chopped chocolate to the large bowl, and mix together just until all the flour is well incorporated.
Divide the dough in two halves and shape two logs on a piece of cling film. This can be tricky but try to use the cling film to form the log. It should be around 11/2 inches in diameter. Wrap the logs in cling film and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
Take the logs out of the fridge and remove the plastic wrap. Cut into 1/2 inch slices and place gently on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for about 12 mins. Remove gently and let cool on a cooling rack. They will harden as they cool.
