This twist on classic choc chip cookies is divine! The recipe calls for a mixture of milk, white and dark chocolate but one or the other will work just as well. We also substituted prunes for raisins giving them an extra bit of yumminess.
Time needed: 10 minutes for preparation, 10 minutes for baking (per tray)
Ingredients (makes 36):
125g butter, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cups (275g) firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup (150g) plain flour
¼ cup (35g) self-raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
⅓ cup (35g) cocoa powder
½ cup (85g) chopped raisins (or prunes)
1½ cups milk, white and dark chocolate (one or a mixture)
1. Preheat oven to moderate.
2. Beat butter, extract, sugar and egg in small bowl with electric mixer until smooth. Do not overbeat. Stir in sifted dry ingredients, then raisins and all the chocolate.
3. Drop level tablespoons of mixture onto lightly greased oven trays, allowing 5cm between each cookie.
4. Bake in moderate oven about 10 minutes. Stand cookies on trays 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
