Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Last night I was bored (yes, at like 10pm) so I made cookies. As you do.

They were good - but very sugary and very chocolatey. They reminded me of the cookies you get from Subway, which was really impressive, I was pretty pleased with them. Here's what I did (if I can remember!) I got a large bowl and put 1/2 cup soft butter, 3/4 cup white sugar (next time I'll only use 1/2 cup!), 2 eggs and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Beat that all together until fluffy. Oh and preheat the oven to 175 degrees celcius fan forced. I didn't want to make too much noise because it was late, so I hand-beat it - it took forever but felt like a good stress relief, haha.

In a separate bowl mix together 1 cup plain flour, 1/3 cup cocoa (this made them really nice and rich - you can probably add less cocoa), 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and about 1/8 teaspoon salt. Then stir that into the butter mix. I added a little bit of milk because I found it was too dry to mix it all in, just a tablespoon or so. Once it was all mixed in, I added about 1 cup of chocolate chips and mixed that in too (stealing one or two for the cook).

Drop them onto non-greasy cooking paper and put in the oven for 8-10 minutes. In case you are wondering about the above picture looking really greasy, I got annoyed at the cooking paper not staying down so I got some spray oil and sprayed the pan, then pushed the cooking paper against it so it would stick.

Yum yum! They were good but a tad sugary for my liking. It makes about 24, depending on whether or not you can find teaspoons (I couldn't so I used my fingers and spoons). The batter is a bit sticky if you put too much milk in but it turned out really nice - crunchy on the outside and nice and gooey on the inside, not hard at all (I can't stand hard cookies!)
