Ingredients
  

  • 350 gm flour, plain 2 1/4 cups, 12.40 oz
  • 200 gm brown sugar 1 packed cup | 7.0 oz
  • 150 gm caster sugar 3/4 cup | 5.3 oz
  • 60 gm cocoa, dark 1/2 cup | 2 oz
  • 200 gm chocolate chips 1 cup | 7.0oz
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 225 gm butter melted | 7.9 oz
  • 2 whole eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • Set the oven 180C | 350 F
  • Mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and sugars together well then mix in the chocolate chips
  • Melt the butter
  • Mix the eggs together with the vanilla
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined and there is no dry ingredients left. Cover the bowl in plastic and chill for several hours or even a few days. If you want to make them straight away spread the mixture on a tray and freeze for 20 minutes to chill down
  • When you are ready for cookies, roll balls of dough the size of a golf ball and put onto a lined baking tray. (You may have to leave the dough on the bench for a few minutes to let it warm enough to roll balls) These need to be baked from cold for the best fudgy results Leave 8cm distance between each.
  • Bake for 12 minutes
  • The cookies will only just be baked around the outside and the centre will still be soft when touched. They may appear uncooked. Once cool they will firm up.
  • Cool on the tray till starting to firm up. Then cool on a rack for at least 1/2 an hour before eating. They will be fudgy in the middle and crunchy on the outside
  • The cookies can be baked till cooked through but they are quite hard and crunchy

Notes

For best results cook this dough from chilled.
Put into the fridge for several hours to a couple of days or flatten onto a tray and freeze for up to 20 minutes. 
If baking with kids this is the time to prepare baking trays and clean down the benches
Add nuts or oats or fruit if you like. Add approximately a cup of any of oats and or nuts.
