Christmas Count Down …3 – The ultra chocolate chip cookies with lots of chocolate
Are you still baking for Christmas? I am, If I do it any sooner it´s all gone by the 24th… right?
I did 3 types this year. The ugly but tasty toffee one I talked about in the last blog, gingerbread cookies and these the Ultra chocolate cookies. I usually bake Biscotti as well some times during the holidays between Christmas and New Years Eve..
I am not a big cookie person, but it´s nice to have some if people stop by and for the little ones and of course I do grab one or two oooor three now and then. These were more easy to make then the fancy ones, just a scoop of teaspoon on the plate.
The ultra chocolate chip cookies with lots of chocolate
- 175 g chocolate
- 125 g butter
- 2 eggs
- 100 g sugar
- 75 g brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 75 g flour
- 25 g cocoa (Dutch Cocoa, I use 70% from Black & Green)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 200 g Chocolate, chopped
- 100 g hazelnuts
Heat oven to 180°c.
Melt the 175 g of chocolate with butter on low heat, stir constantly.
Put eggs, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl ( I use Kitchen Aid). Mix well until it becomes light and fluffy.
While the machine is on low speed add the melted chocolate with the butter .
Add flour, cocoa and baking powder, mix well.
At last add the chopped chocolate and hazelnuts.
Put the dough with a teaspoon on a oven plate lined with parchment paper and bake for 7-8 minutes.
And so is December basically, all gone almost…
