Chocolatey Goodness in a Cookie

I like to bake to de-stress; to unwind; and to focus on something else when my mind is a crazy tornado of thoughts.

My Saturday morning baking was the only solution to a very long week at work - and so at 8.30am I turned on the oven and a short time later had made some triple choc cookies that filled the house with a delicious chocolatey aroma.

Triple Choc Fudge Cookies

Want to make a batch for yourself ??


125g butter, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1¼ cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup plain flour
¼ cup self-raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/3 cup cocoa powder
½ cup dark choc bits
½ cup white chocolate bits


Preheat oven to moderate. Line three oven trays with baking paper.

Beat butter, essence, sugar and egg in medium bowl with electric mixer until smooth. Stir in combined sifted flours, soda and cocoa powder; and stir in both chocolates. 

Drop rounded tablespoons of mixture onto prepared trays about 4cm apart; press each with fork to flatten slightly. Bake in moderate oven 10 minutes. Stand 5 minutes; transfer cookies to wire rack to cool.
