Home Made Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate cookies

This blog is about parenting – and my motto is Happy Mama – Happy Baby. To be happy I need chocolate (think what you want!). I really got used to these amazing chocolate cookies when I was in Poland and I couldn’t find a substitute back in Italy….so I thought I might give it a try and make some! I searched google images for the best looking chocolate cookies I could find – checked out a few recipes to see which one I liked most and I chose this one. The whole blog is actually really awesome but back to my cookies. I modified the recipe a little bit – I think every cook does it!

CHOCOLATE COOKIES RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F).

120 g (4 oz) good quality bittersweet chocolate
110 g (1 stick) unsalted butter
3 eggs, lightly beaten
100 g (1/2 C) brown sugar
120 g (1 C) all-purpose flour
90 g (3/4 C) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
120 g (4 oz) chocolate nibs

Makes about 100 bite-size cookies.

1) Melt together the chocolate and all of the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Transfer into a large mixing-bowl and let cool for ten minutes.

2) Whisk the eggs into the cooled melted chocolate. Add in the sugar and mix again.

3) Add the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder.

4) The batter will be thick. Add the chocolate nibs.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Scoop out rounded teaspoons of batter, shape them into balls with the tips of your fingers, and line them up on the cookie sheet, leaving a one-inch space between them. Put the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for ten minutes (if the sheet and batter are cold, the cookies are less likely to spread). Put the cookie sheet into the oven to bake for eight to ten minutes, until the tops feel just dry to the touch. Don’t overbake, or they won’t be as moist inside.

They are divine!
