Chocolate covered chocolate chip cookies

ccc2Yeah.. Did you just read the title? Unbelievable right! Like: double, double, double! Because there aren’t just chocolate chips in there, there are brown ánd white chocolate chips in those cookies! And then also covered in delicous chocolate. Oh my.. Maybe I should just call them CCCC-cookies! That doesn’t make your mouth fall open immediately, right? Although I actually like that! Do you take a look with me at the recipe?

I have made these with my sister Margot. We had a wonderful evening together. Cooking (a delicious recipe for the next post!), eating, talking, baking, watching a movie and cuddling in bed. I hope we can do that more often.
So this recipe. Crunchy, chewy, pieces of chocolate and one side dipped in melted chocolate. All together in one cookie, you hear me? What a combination! We wanted to make our selves a delicious dessert and this was the result. Chocolate coverd chocolate chip cookies with ice cream between two of them. Jum! Although they were actually too big for our tummies, they were heavenly! And delicious without icecream as well, but I think you had already guessed that by looking at the picture right?

Chocolate coverd chocolate chip cookies
yield: 8 big cookies

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
110 gr butter, cold and cubed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup chopped chocolate
150 gr chocolate to melt

We made this recipe by hand, but you can always use your processor.
Preheat your oven to 150 C.
Combine your sugars and the cold, cubed butter in a bowl until you get a paste. Add the vanilla extract and your egg, mixing until just combined. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips. Mix this until just incorporated.

Make 8 equal pieces out of this dough (or use an ice cream scooper), and place those on your baking paper. Make sure you leave room for spreading, because they will do that quite a lot. Bake them for 20-25 minutes, or until they are browned and dry in the center.
Let them cool for 5 minutes so that they can harden. In the meantime you can let your chocolate melt by placing the pieces in a heath-proof bowl over a pan with cooked water. Let this stay for a while.

Now take your bowl with chocolate. It should be melted by now. Take your cookies and dip half of it in the chocolate. If it doesn’t work, take a spoon and drizzle the chocolate over. Place them on a baking paper and let them rest until the chocolate has set. You can use the fridge to speed up this proces. Then they are ready to eat!
