Nicks favourite thing…

Like 99% of the population, I’m chocolate dependant. I need it in the morning, after a workout, after each meal and after I’ve just eaten it. It’s delicious. If you don’t like chocolate, I just don’t think that’s normal. I’m joking of course.

What does it taste like?

These cookies are fudgy, soft in texture rather than crispy, almost cakey. They have indulgent chunks of chocolate baked throughout and then melted on top as they’ve just come out of the oven. They’re the ultimate hit of chocolate.

How Can I get perfectly round cookies?

Once the cookies have baked and have just come out of the oven, use a large round cookie cutter to shuffle around to get into rounder shapes. Then allow them to cool.

What are the ingredients I need?

Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies - ingredients list

Cocoa powder – I used unsweetened cocoa powder. These cookies depend on good quality ingredients, so grab yourself a good quality cocoa powder.

Sugar – I used white caster sugar, also known as superfine sugar. But you can use brown sugar if you like.

Butter – I used unsalted butter. Let the butter cool slightly before using otherwise it can activate the raising agents and results in a flat cookie that isn’t the right texture.

Vegetable oil – you can use sunflower,

Egg – I used large eggs.

Vanilla ExtractAlways use good quality vanilla extract when baking, it makes a huge difference. I have a great recipe here for it if you’d like to try your own!

Flour – I used all-purpose flour. Also known as all-purpose flour.

Baking powder – this helps the cookies rise and helps give them a cakey, light texture.

Salt – I used fine salt.

Chocolate – you want to make sure you’re using cooking chocolate and not regular chocolate not meant for cooking. You can find cooking chocolate in the baking isle of your supermarket. Just chop it up roughly using a large knife. You’ll use half in the cookie dough and half to add on top as soon as these have come out of the oven.

Heres how to make Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies.

Making these cookies is really easy. I don’t have step by step photos for these cookies yet, but let’s quickly go through the recipe.

  1. Add the cocoa powder, sugar (can use brown sugar), butter and vegetable oil into a large mixing bowl and mix using a whisk. You can use a whisk or spatula for this but I’ve found a whisk is best.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk until well combined. You’ll notice a difference in texture. The mixture will become smooth and glossy. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and half the chopped chocolate and switch over to a spatula to mix in.

  1. Use a large ice cream scoop to scoop the cookie dough into balls. Place on two baking trays. You want to space them well apart to allow the cookies to spread as they bake.
  2. Next, Use your hands to roll into balls, then flatten and place back on the baking tray. Bake on 175C / 350F for 10 minutes.
  3. As soon as they come out of the oven, add the remaining chopped chocolate on top and then use a large cookie cutter to shuffle around the cookie to shape it into a rounder shape.

My Top Tips for making these Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies!

  • To get perfectly round cookies, use a large cookie cutter to shuffle around the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven as they’re still warm and soft. This will give you a perfectly round cookie.

  • You can serve these warm or cold. They’re even delicious straight out of the freezer!

Notes

Storage

Dark chocolate
It’s important to use cooking chocolate fort his recipe. Using non-cooking chocolate will cause the chocolate to seize and bubble as it bakes. Then it has a crumble texture.
