Double chocolate chip biscuits recipe
Calling all chocoholics! These double chocolate chip biscuits are jam-packed with melted chocolate and yummy chocolate pieces - you won’t be able to stop at just one!
- 110 g butter (softened)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 125 g milk chocolate (melted)
- 100 g milk chocolate (roughly chopped, chopped into pieces)
- 200 g white chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 160C (140C fan-forced) and line two trays with baking paper. Place the butter and brown sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat for 2-3 minutes until well combined.
Remove the bowl from the mixer stand and add the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and melted chocolate to the bowl. Add the extra chopped milk chocolate and white chocolate chips and stir with a large spoon to combine. Don’t worry if your mixture doesn’t start to come together straight away, it can take a minute or two to combine.
Use a dessert spoon to scoop up the double chocolate chip biscuit mixture and roll it into balls. If you find your mixture is quite soft, place it in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm up a little. Place the balls onto your prepared baking trays and flatten slightly. Repeat, making sure you leave approximately a 3cm gap between each biscuit, until all the mixture has been used.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slight cracks have formed on top of the biscuits, before cooling on the baking trays for 5 minutes and carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Use your favourite kind of chocolate for these bickies. If you have a penchant for dark chocolate, go for it. If white chocolate is your thing, use that instead!
- These biscuits are delicious and perfect to treat the kids with for parties, picnics, or a sneaky after-school snack.
