DARK CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

Anyone who knows me will know that I love to eat and bake with Green and Black’s 70% dark chocolate. I’ve made dark chocolate cookies using this chocolate in the past so I wanted to do something different this time and added I peanut butter to the recipe! The cookies were baked perfectly with a soft middle and a slight crunch on the top.

If you would like to make them yourself, here’s what you need to do.

Ingredients:

  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 115g dark chocolate
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 140g flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 150 caster sugar
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar

 

Recipe:

  1. Break the chocolate into chunks. Melt the chocolate and butter over a double broiler until smooth and leave to cool for five minutes.
  2. Once cooled, stir in the peanut butter, flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, vanilla, salt and beat for ten minutes or until the consistency is like a sticky dough.
  3. Add the cocoa powder and beat for a couple more minutes.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  5. After 45 minutes, split the dough into 12 equal portions and roll into balls.
  6. Coat the dough balls in icing sugar, flatten slightly and place on a baking tray.
  7. Make sure each cookie is a couple of inches away from another to avoid the cookies sticking together.
  8. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes on 200C.
  9. Allow to cool.
  10. Enjoy!
