Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Style in White :: Chewy Chocolate Cookies My husband loves chocolate: chocolate cakes, cookies, milk, you name it. Usually, when I bake, I make vanilla-flavoured sweets, but I decided to try something different this time. So last Saturday, I made chewy chocolate cookies that tasted like brownies. They a little hard on the outside but soft on the inside. If you’re a big fan of chocolate like my husband, you’ll love this recipe! These are perfect cookies for the holidays!

I found this recipe on the Entertaining with Beth Youtube channel. This woman is A-MA-ZING! Her instructions are clear and the steps are easy to follow. Watching the video makes it even easier to make the chewy chocolate cookies.

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup (120 g) of butter (room temperature)
  • 2 cups (400 g) of sugar
  • 8 oz (230 g) unsweetened baking chocolate – make sure it’s 100% cacao. It makes the cookies taste so much better!
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) coffee or espresso powder
  • 3 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) vanilla
  • 2 cups (240 g) of flour
  • 1 ½ tsp (7.5 ml) baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp (7.5 ml) salt
  • 2/3 cup (70 g) icing sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until you get a fluffly texture.
  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave at :30 increments until it’s melted. Add the chocolate to the butter mixture and mix everything together. Then add the coffee/espresso powder.
  3. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well and scrapping down the bowl between additions. Add vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Mix everything well and then add the flour mixture in thirds to the chocolate mixture. Beat until the flour is well incorporated.
  5. Refrigerate the dough for an 1 hour before baking. Yes, you have to be patient my friend! 🙂 But you’ll see, it will be worth it!
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (176c) and in the meantime, shape the dough into small 1 inch balls. Then cover the balls entirely with icing powder. The more the better!
  7. Place the balls on a parchment cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes maximum. Make sure not to overbake!

You can get creative and add peppermint into the mixture. I hope you give this recipe a try during the Christmas holiday.

Enjoy!
