Doubly Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies


Another lovely challenge from the Sweet and Simple Bakes team, Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies. This was my first time baking cookies (yes! I’m a complete novice baker!), and this was just the thing to get me going in the cookie category.

I must first congratulate the S+SB team, Rosie and Maria, who are doing a fabulous job. I’ve gained a lot of confidence just from their fail-safe recipes and directions. Not to mention that my family thanks them too! (the 2 dozen cookies where gone in 2 hours, by 4 people! Crazy!).

The rule of thumb at home seems to be that the height of the cookies has to be equal to the height of the glass of milk! Nice, huh?

And this is my entry for Click: Cookies. I can’t wait to see all the photos!


Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies
(the recipe from here)

9 oz All-Purpose Flour
2 oz Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
6 oz Butter at room temperature
7 oz Demerara Sugar
4 oz Caster Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
11 oz Chocolate Chips


Sift the flour, baking soda and cocoa together into a bowl.

In another bowl, add the butter and both sugars and mix well until creamy. Add the eggs (a little bit at a time), until well combined and then the vanilla. Beat until smooth and fully mixed in.


Add the flour mixture, a little bit at a time, and fold into the wet ingredients. Now add the chocolate chips until combined. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and set aside in the refrigerator for at least an hour, until chilled and firm.


Preheat oven to 180 deg C.

Roll the mixture into little balls (about the size of a ping pong ball) and place them on a greased baking sheet, leaving enough room for the cookies to expand while baking. Flatten slightly with your fingers.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes. They came out perfect! Let it cool for a few minutes on the baking tray and then transfer to a cooling rack until they are completely cool.


They were … all gone in 2 hours!


Can’t wait for next month and the next challenge! And here are some fun/ interesting cookie recipes – check them out!
Is this an average cookie? Nope, its a Mean Chocolate Chip Cookie!
