Double Chocolate Cookies

Ok ladies, we promised a recipe and here is one we made today. I have noted the requests sent and will be on each one in the coming weeks.
Today we decided on another cookie recipe…a double chocolate chip one. Now as I didn’t have white chocolate at home I just used milk chocolate. You can use chocolate chips or broken chocolate bits if you like.
First of all, we put on our gorgeous new apron from the lovely Ms Curlypops and then we got started.

Double Chocolate Cookies
250g butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup sugar
3 eggs
2 ¼ cup plain flour, sifted
½ cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
140g dark chocolate chips or pieces
140g white chocolate chips or pieces ( we used milk chocolate chips this time)

Preheat oven to 150 Celsius.
Place butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 8-10 min or until light and creamy.
Add the eggs and beat well.
Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and chocolate and mix well.
Roll tablespoons of the mixture into rounds (we didn’t today, we just left them unrolled).
Place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper, allowing room for the cookies to spread, and flatten slightly.
shhh…secretly licking your fingers is optional

Bake for 20 min or until dark on the bottom. Cool on wire racks.
Makes about 24
