Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Chocoholics won't be able to get enough of these soft and chewy chocolate fudge cookies. They are so easy to put together, you could probably make a batch right now. The trick is chopping up a block of chocolate into big chunks rather than using chocolate chips, that way you get generous pieces of dark chocolate in every bite. They are practically exploding with gooey chocolate chunks.

These cookies were such a hit in our house, they disappeared in a flash. They are chewy and soft and oh so chocolately. The perfect cure to your chocolate cravings. What is your favourite cookie flavour? These rocketed up the top of my chart but if you are in a peanut butter mood, try my creamy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.

SWEET MENU'S OWN CHOCOLATE FUDGE COOKIES

Makes 16 cookies

Ingredients
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup caster sugar
115 grams (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornflour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

Line two baking trays with baking paper. In a large mixing bowl, add the sugars and the butter and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add the vanilla and egg and beat for a minute or so until smooth. Sift in the flour, bicarb soda, cornflour and cocoa into the mixture, and stir until combined and forms a chocolately dough. If its a little dry, add the tablespoon of milk and then stir in the chocolate chunks.

Place the dough in the fridge and chill for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and roll balls of the dough until smooth using your hands and pop onto the prepared trays. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy warm from the oven with a glass of milk.

  19. Is there anything else I could use besides cornflour? I don't think we have that here in the Philippines. :(

    1. Hi Alyssa, try making them without the cornflour. The cornflour simply helps the cookie stay nice and thick (and not go flat) but if you make sure you chill the dough, they should still be fine without it! Let me know how you go :)
