Chocolate cookies are any sweet tooth’s perfect snack to satisfy that chocolate craving on the go, or just enjoying one while unwinding.
They also remind many of us about our sugar-obsessed childhood and something many of us have still taken a liking to late into our adult years; memories of going into sweet bake shops to try a variety of their chocolate cookies, or learning how to bake them with our mothers.
Chocolate cookies are easy to make, and they’re almost always a fail-proof way to send happiness and love to anyone who loves chocolates and cookies.
Baking chocolate cookies is also a great way to teach your child the basics of being in the kitchen and spending some quality time together.
There are also many varieties of chocolate cookies one can buy and make, from loaded with chocolate chips to simple, delicious chewy varieties. They also make great snacks on the go for both children and adults.
They are perfect with a cup of coffee during your office break and good snacks for your children at school together with some milk. They are also great late night snacks, as a serving of just a few pieces is always fun to munch on.
If you want to try your hand at baking some delicious chocolate cookies, here’s a simple and easy to follow recipe:
Do-It-Yourself Chocolate Cookies
½ cup unsalted butter
¼ cup white sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup all purpose flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 ½ cup white chocolate chips
1/8 tsp salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and place the baking rack which has been lined with two baking sheets, in the center of the oven.
Use a hand or electric mixer to beat the sugars and butter until the consistency is light, airy, and fluffy. Slowly add the egg and vanilla extract, and mix until all ingredients are smoothly combined.
Then add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder; continue mixing until these are well incorporated. Sprinkle in the chocolate chips for additional crunch to your chocolate cookies.
Depending on how large or small you want your cookies, use an ice cream scooper or large tablespoon to put 1 ½ of the batter onto the baking sheet, making sure you space the chocolate cookies 2 inches apart.
Bake them in the oven for about 8 minutes or until your chocolate cookies are firm to the touch, but soft in its center. Once you remove them from the oven, let them cool while still on the baking sheet for an additional 5 minutes.
Then remove the cookies, place them on a wire rack to cool completely. This recipe is good for making about 20 pieces of delicious, crunchy chocolate cookies you and your family will be able to enjoy. Serve while still warm and fresh from the oven with a glass of milk, tea, or coffee.
