This is my own recipe of chilli chocolate cookies and I got the inspiration from the recipe: “cookies con chips de chocolate y mantequilla de cacahuete” from this super cool blog. My recipe is an adaptation; instead of peanut butter I added dark and chilli chocolate.
- 210 g all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 140 g unsalted butter softened at room temperature
- 140 g brown sugar
- 90 g white sugar
- 1 egg
- 45 g of chilli chocolate chopped in small pieces
- 70 g dark chocolate chips
- 35 g unsweetened dark cocoa powder
We need to have 2 bowls where we will make these delicious cookies. To start with, we will grab a recipient and we will fold in the butter and the sugars- we mix them well with a spoon or spatula until the batter gets creamy. Then we add the egg and we repeat the action. Set aside.
Our second bowl will be a bit smaller and we will sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix it with a spatula. Set aside.
Once we have done these two steps we will pour the dry ingredients in 3 times (not all at once), we want our dough to be without lumps. When we have all the ingredients well mixed we will need to fold in the chilli chocolate pieces and the chocolate chips. The batter will not need to be refrigerated long because it will be firm.
We use a spoon and we make balls- we can add more chocolate chips in the balls especially for sweet tooth and chocoholic addicted like me.
Our cookie dough will be kept in the fridge for almost 1 hour. After that we will introduce them in the oven that will have been preheated previously to 170º C. The cookies will expand in size and we need to look at them carefully because they can get burned and we cannot distinguish it well because they are dark brown colour.
The result is amazing and only 8-12 minutes in the oven; you will enjoy your coffee time with your super freshly home made baked cookies. What is better than baking your own cookies? You know what you really eat!
Yield: 12 cookies. Difficulty: Easy. Time: 25 min.
