Last week I made some delicious chocolate chip cookies, you can find the recipe here. The next day I came across this recipe by A Cookie Named Desire and thought it would be a perfect way to use the rest of the cookies that hadn’t been devoured when they were fresh and warm.
I think these are my all time favourite chocolate cookies! They have a beautiful hint of coffee (I used Nespresso as I’m lucky enough to have a pod machine) and somehow manage to stay soft and gooey whilst holding together big chunks of Oreo and choc chip cookie.
You certainly won’t be disappointed by these cookies, especially as they only take 9 minutes to cook… it’s almost too easy to whip these up!
210g all-purpose flour
50g cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon salt
120g unsalted butter, room temperature
120g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
280g caster sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons strong coffee (I used Nespresso)
250g melted chocolate
260g dark/milk/white/mixed chocolate, chopped into 1cm chunks
10 chocolate chip cookies (store bought or you can use my cookie recipe)
Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt together in a large bowl and leave to one side.
Line two baking trays with baking paper and preheat the oven to 175°C.
Beat the both butters and sugar together in a stand mixer or with a hand-held mixer until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, adding one tablespoon of the flour mix and beating well between each addition. Add in the vanilla extract and beat the mixture
Mix in the coffee and melted chocolate and mix well.
Fold in the flour mixture and the chocolate chunks. Quarter the chocolate chip cookies and Oreos and fold into the dough carefully, trying not to break the pieces. Don’t over mix the dough as it will make it tough.
Place heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheets, the mixure might be sticky so this is a messy step!
Bake the cookies for 8 – 9 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, the cookies will look slightly underbaked. Don’t worry about this as they will continue to cook as they cool.
Allow to cool for a few seconds and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
And there you have it…rich, decadent cookies that will leave your sweet tooth thoroughly satisfied!
Enjoy with a cold glass of milk or a lovely cuppa x
