Chocolate is pretty high on my list of things to murder a swan over, so I thought what better way to improve on a brownie-fudge-esque double chocolate cookie recipe than to add 2 king size Cadbury Crunchie bars?
The result speaks for itself.
These little chocolate heaven bombs end up looking impressive enough to give as a gift which I did after sneaking a few myself, just to make sure I hadn’t accidentally put anything weird in the mix, like an omelette. (I hadn’t-phew!)
Despite having the oh-man-they-look-amazing-stuff-the-new-year’s-resolution factor, these cookies are easier to make than baked beans out of a tin.
Fudgy Triple Choc Cookies
- 200g dark chocolate
- 2 king size Cadbury Crunchie bars
- 100g butter
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
- 2 tbs cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup icing sugar
The Cooking Bit
Place the dark chocolate and the butter in a bowl and microwave until melted. Should take about 2 minutes (depending on your microwave’s ability to microwave). Stir and stand melted chocolate goodness for 5 minutes to cool.
Stir in caster sugar into the chocolate mixture until dissolved. Add eggs and mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix flour and cocoa powder together and add the broken-up Crunchie bars. Don’t break them up too small otherwise all of the amazing honeycomb will dissolve in the mixture. It will still taste good, but won’t have the texture.
Mix the dry ingredients into the chocolate bowl to form a dough-like mixture. Cover the dough and chill in the fridge for 45mins- 1 hour. The longer you chill, the easier the dough is to work with.
After the dough is chilled, pre-heat the oven to 170°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Take out chilled mixture from the fridge and use a tablespoon to scoop out balls of dough. Roll them into balls between your hands and repeat with the rest of the mixture until you have a series of little ping-pong sized balls made up of chocolate on your counter.
Dip each ball into the icing sugar and roll around so it’s completely coated and place on the trays about 2 cm apart.
Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes until they start to look on the firm side. Cool so that the fudgyness solidifies then impress everyone around you!
Yes, it’s looking at you.
