Chocolate Chocolate Chip
Cookie Recipe

This chocolate chocolate chip cookie recipe makes very moreish little dark chocolate cookies with a slightly crunchy outside and a lovely soft fudgy middle with chocolate chips.

They are quick and easy to make and the worst thing that can go wrong is that they overcook a little. In this case, they still taste divine, but they are crunchy right through.

We like to have these cookies as a decadent treat in colder weather, because they are quite rich, and they are so delicious fresh from the cooker.

I also like to serve little cookies as part of an afternoon tea spread. The children love them.

Top with a pecan for a more
sophisticated look.

You can choose to make them even smaller than I like to make them, or of course, really big, like traditional American cookies.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Level: Easy
Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 12

2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
plus 55g (1/4 cup) dark chocolate chips
55g (1/4 cup) butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 egg
50g (1/4 packed cup) muscavado sugar
20g (1 tablespoon) fine (caster) sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
70g (1/3 cup) plain white flour
12 pecan nuts (optional)

  • Pre-heat the oven to Gas mark 5, 475F. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment.

  • Put 2 tbsp of chocolate chips into a pan with the butter. Heat gently until fully melted.

  • Put the rest of the ingredients, apart from the chocolate chips, into a food processor. Or you can just mix them together in a bowl if you wish.

  • Pour in the butter and melted chocolate, scraping round the pan with a flexible spatula. Blend or stir the mixture until it is fully incorporated.

  • Finally, stir in the rest of the chocolate chips.

  • Divide the mixture into 12 equal pieces, roll into little balls and place 6 well spaced apart on each baking sheet. The cookies will spread to be around 3 1/2 inches.
  • If you are using pecans, put a pecan nut on top of each cookie and press down very gently.

  • Bake the chocolate chocolate chip cookies on the middle shelf of the cooker for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully on the baking sheets.

Serve with

Serve chocolate chocolate chip cookies with homemade hot chocolate for a decadent but simple afternoon snack.

Or serve as part of a small afternoon tea spread with English Breakfast tea, tuna sandwiches and carrot cake.

Or as part of a full afternoon tea spread on a tiered cake stand with other small treats such as chocolate covered strawberries, mini meringues and melting moments.

Or just on their own with a nice cup of tea. Earl Grey, or perhaps Rooibos if you're looking for something without caffeine...
