Double chocolate cookies

Double chocolate cookies

These chocolate cookies must be the most chocolatey cookies I have ever made. My children love chocolate cookies so I thought I’ll give them a treat for being rather helpful lately. Flipping through my cookbook, my eyes sparkled at Double Chocolate Cookies by Donna Hay. I was amazed at the amount of chocolate used. I was so excited to try. I even doubled the portion thinking that this would be the best chocolate cookies.

When the cookies were baked, they were soft and very chocolatey but quite bitter because of the amount of dark chocolate used. My children didn’t like them….so sad. I also didn’t quite like them….more sad. I thought I was in trouble. What am I going to do with these cookies? Maybe I should turn them into some form of mess like Eton Mess. I was thinking that mixing them into ice cream may be a great idea. I can call it Mary Mess…haha

However, the next day, my children were munching away happily. They said the cookies were really delicious. I thought I heard it wrongly. I tried one and indeed it was delicious. But it was so rich and chocolatey I can only eat one or two at a time. Apparently after a day, they became delicious. Interesting! Phew…a big relief!

Here is the Double Chocolate Cookies recipe. It is rather simple to make.

Ingredients A
220g butter
1 & 1/2 C brown sugar
2 eggs
2t vanilla
