Cookies are easy to make! This all time chocolate cookie is a favourite in my home. What makes it “different” and luxurious is the fact that chocolate bits (not to be confused with chocolate chips) are used in this. You can use the nuts and chocolate of your choice. The cookie is chewy and yet crunchy with that melt in the mouth texture. Its always healthier to bake your own cookies at home instead of buying them. This way you know EXACTLY what your children are eating! I wonder if thats a good idea??? Hmmmm…!!! If you follow my simple instructions you can make this in no time !
115 grams salted butter
150 grams light Brown sugar ( or dark Brown, I used light Brown, it gives the cookie a slightly lighter color)
50 grams White sugar
200 grams of White flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg, room temperatura
200-300 grams of chopped chocolate of your choice ( i used 200 grams of my all time favourite cadbury dairy milk and 100 grams of milky bar )
100 grams chopped nuts of your choice (optional, I did not use)
1 tablespoon of vanilla essence
1/4 teaspoon salt
Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat till melted. Take care not to boil the butter, just heat it up til its all liquid. Remove from heat and stir in the Brown and White sugar. Then heat the oven to 180 degrees. Stir the butter sugar mixture for a minute and then leave it aside. Meanwhile chop the chocolate, nuts and measure out the other ingredients. Keep on stirring the butter and sugar mixture on and off till you get a caramel like consistency. Have patience, this is the only tedious part of the récipe. I sat down on the sofá and stirred it while watching tv. This should take you about 5 minutes ONLY, its totally worth it! Once you have the caramel like consitency you can now proceed. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. Add the egg to the caramel mixture and the vanilla essence and stir it well. Now add the caramel mixture into the flour mixture and just stir it for half a minute. Add the chopped chocolates and nuts but do not over mix. Grease and line a 10″ pie dish with butter paper (grease proof paper ) and pour the cookie mixture in. Bake it till the top is Brown and the cookie is done. To check if the cookie is done, insert a toothpick in, if it comes out clean, the cookie is done.
I served this with home made chocolate sauce and vanilla icecream
