Oh No! More Chocolate AGAIN

This Friday and after a long walk on Oxford Street I became inspired to bake something again. However, this time I baked something completely different, that I had never done before.

Triple Chocolate Cookies

I decided to add this Chocolate Cookies recipe to my baking repertoire. I have to say that I can't really follow a recipe until the end, so I had to give my own twist to this existing recipe here.


  • 200gr of salted butter softened
  • 100gr of brown sugar
  • 200gr of caster sugar
  • 1 cold egg
  • 75gr of cocoa powder
  • 275gr of self-raising flour
  • 2tbsp of instant coffee
  • 1 bar of lindt excellence intense orange dark chocolate
  • 1 bar of 74% plain dark chocolate 
  •  shredded almonds for decoration

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 200º C
  2. Combine flour and chocolate powder in a bowl. Whisk well; then set aside
  3. In a bowl cream the softened butter and the 2 types of sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy
  4. Add the cold egg to the previous mixture and whisk
  5. Sift the dry ingredients and mix until just combined 
  6. Add the 2tbsp of instant coffee (it boots the chocolate flavor)
  7. Throw in the chocolate bars broken down into squares
  8. Line two trays with baking paper
  9. Scoop the mixture into 12 hand-full size balls, placing them far apart on the tray
  10. Add the shredded almonds on top
  11. Pop in the preheated oven for 10 minutes ONLY
  12. Leave them to cool for around 30 minutes and enjoy!

The final Result...

As far as baked cookies are concerned, it doesn't get much better than homemade chocolate cookies --- gooey on the inside and crispy on the outside! This ones are amazing to eat as a pudding or with a cup of tea as a snack.  Make sure to take them out of the oven after 10 minutes, they will look uncooked but don't worry it will all be perfect after 30 minutes.

These are without a doubt my new favorite desert!
