Unbelievable Double Chocolate Cookies
Serves: 14 cookies
  • 1 stick (115g) butter, melted
  • ¾ cup (150g) caster sugar
  • ½ cup (110g) brown sugar
  • ¾ cup (70g) cocoa powder (good quality)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¾ cups (265g) plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 100g (4oz) white chocolate chips
  • 100g (4oz) dark chocolate chips (70% cocoa solids)
  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan, and then place into a large mixing bowl and let cool slightly. Add in the sugars, cocoa, salt and vanilla and stir to combine.
  2. Add in both the eggs and stir until the mixture is glossy and comes together - this can take a bit of stirring, but you'll see when it happens.
  3. Finally, add in the flour, baking powder and chocolate all at once, and then stir until everything is combined and no streaks of flour remain.
  4. Cover the bowl with clingwrap and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes. After 15 minutes, turn the oven on to 160C.
  5. When the 30 minutes are up, scoop up ¼ cup sized chunks of dough, and place them well-spaced onto a lined baking sheet. Flatten the cookies out a little, and then bank for 14-17 minutes, or until they are matte on the top, but still very soft.
  6. Leave the cookies to cool on the sheet for 10 minutes, during which time they will firm up, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
