triple chocolate cookies



300g plain flour
2 tspb bicarbonate soda
150g soft light brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 Tsp Salt
2 tbsp cocoa
250g butter [softened]
250g dark chocolate
2 large eggs [cold]
280g additional chocolate [chopped, mixed dark/milk/white]. 



1- Heat the oven to 150 C degrees [fan], 170 C conventional.

2 - Cream the sugars and butter together.

3 - Melt the dark chocolate, and add to the butter and sugar, along with the vanilla. Mix in the eggs.

4 - Mix in the dry ingredients, before adding the chopped chocolate.

5 - Using a small ice cream scoop, place 8 balls onto a lined baking sheet**, allowing them space to spread.

6 - Bake for 16 minutes until the biscuits have spread and begun to crack.

6 - Allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

**Top Tip: This recipe yields around 45 biscuits. Its a lot - but I take the mixture I don't need that day and ball up as above, placing them relatively close together onto a large sheet, before popping this into the freezer. Once they have set, you can put these into a plastic box. Ready made cookies batter!  Just take out 8 - 12 balls to bake from frozen as you need them, and allow a few extra minutes with the baking time.
