With coronavirus restrictions easing in most countries in Europe & in the different states here in Australia it’s time to celebrate! We are so excited that we get to travel around the place a bit more before heading back home to Europe in July. We’re heading home a lot sooner than we had planned, but what a trip it has been! Although I’m not a travel blogger, I might write up a few of our roadtrips we did once we’re back home. But for now, it’s time to celebrate with some chewy double chocolate chip cookies !
I am a big sucker for anything chocolate so these double chocolate chip cookies seemed like the perfect celebratory treat. We’re using cocoa powder, white chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips. I’ve been using raw sugar these last few months instead of granulated and I didn’t feel like buying a whole bag of sugar for one recipe so I used raw sugar in this recipe too. You don’t have to do the same of course, but raw sugar supposedly also makes them chewier too.
To make the cookies chewier, we’re going to put the cookie dough in the fridge for at least an hour as well and we’re going to bake them at a lower temperature than usual (160°C instead of 175-180°C).
Chewy double chocolate chip cookies
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 150 dark brown sugar
- 100g raw sugar
- 8g vanilla sugar
- 150g butter, room temperature
- 200g plain flour
- 35g cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 75-100g white chocolate chips*
- 75-100g dark chocolate chips*
Preheat the oven to 160 °C Fan.
Melt butter at low heat.
Mix the tree sugars with the butter until you get a pale and creamy mixture.
Add the eggs and beat well.
Now add the cocoa powder, baking powder & the flour and stir everything well (do this by hand to avoid over mixing the dough).
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Place the dough in the fridge for at least one hour.
Scoop out a teaspoon of the mixture and make a little ball or a pile and put them on a tray lined with baking paper or a baking mat, do not flatten the dough!
The cookies will flatten & spread out in the oven so the higher we make them before putting them in the oven, the chewier the middle will be.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. Let them cool down for a few minutes before taking them off the plates.
*make sure they are chips that don't melt right away when they get warm, you'll find them in the baking section of your supermarket
