chocolate drop cookies with white chocolate chunks

very quick and easy

This is a delightfully easy chocolate chip cookie recipe adapted from the Magnolia Bakery cook book – ‘More from Magnolia’.

I didn’t have any dark chocolate chips in the house, so I just chopped up a few chunks of white chocolate chips.

What you need to make these:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 Tbs cocoa poweder (I used unsweetened Dutch processed cocoa powder because its the best)
  • 1/2 tsp baking poweder
  • pinch of salt
  • 140gms of butter (the original recipe was half butter and half vegetable shortening – but I prefer all butter)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (about 80gms) chocolate pieces (dark or white), chopped into small chunks

How to make these:

  • using an electric mixer, cream the butter and suger for a couple of minutes until smooth
  • add the egg and vanilla and continue to beat
  • in another bowl sieve the flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt together
  • add the dry ingredients into the butter egg mixture and mix until just combined
  • stir in the chocolate chips
  • drop a tablespoon of the cookie mixture onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or baking paper
  • place the cookies in the fridge for 20 minutes
  • Pre heat the oven to 180 C whilst they are cooling
  • bake for 10 – 12 minutes
  • allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before removing them completely to cool

The recipe recommended sprinkling over sugar before baking, but instead I sprinkled a very little bit of sea salt as I had done with ‘the best ever chocolate cookie on the internet’  recipe.

These are very sweet and quite chewy, and I found tasted better the day after and the day after that.

delicious with a glass of milk

Oh what temptation you put my way! I have given up chocolate for Lent, now you’re really testing my resolve! I have printed it out for later – only 27 days left!
