Chocolate Choc-Chip Cookies

Ever have those moods where chocolate should just beware? Anything chocolate will do, but the “chocolatier” the better. Our treat-box stock levels were running dangerously low just prior to my fortnightly grocery shop, but my craving for chocolate wasn’t going to be put off.

Chocolate Choc-Chip Cookies

While doing a quick glance round the pantry, I realised we were also out of milk and dark chocolate chips, but there was about half a bag of white ones ready and waiting. Now white chocolate chips in a white chocolate chip cookie would probably be just fine, but as I said, the “chocolatier” the better.

By replacing a little of the flour with cocoa powder, voila! Chocolate Choc-Chip Cookies were born. My son loved this idea, and freshly warm from the oven, we even converted my husband.

ingredients:
250 g butter, softened
½ cup sugar
¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla essence/extract
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1½ cups white chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C and line 2 – 3  oven trays with baking paper.
  2. Cream the butter until light and fluffy, then add the sugar and cream until dissolved and the mixture is a very light cream colour.
  3. Add the condensed milk and vanilla extract and mix to combine.
  4. Sift in the dry ingredients and fold through the butter mixture until well combined.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. With lightly floured hands, roll generous ping pong/golf ball size amounts into balls and place them on the prepared trays, making sure they are far apart enough to spread during baking. Use a fork dipped in flour to flatten the balls slightly.
  7. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the biscuits are firm and starting to colour (although you won’t notice this as much as with the light cookies).
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the trays for a few minutes before transferring carefully to a wire rack.

Enjoy!
