Chocolate Fudge Cookies

I have to remind myself time and time again that the some of the best recipes are found on the side or back of a product packet.  So these cookies are a White Wings recipe from their Gluten Free Plain Flour packet.

And they are made a little extra special with a sprinkle of Little Gems*

Chewy Triple Choc Chip Cookies

Ingredients

125 g butter, chopped

200 g dark cooking chocolate, chopped

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 1/4 cup gf plain flour

1/2 cup cocoa

200 g white choc chips (or dark choc chips)

Method

Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan forced)

Line four baking trays with baking paper.

Place butter and chocolate into a small saucepan and stir over a low heat until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a bowl, add eggs and brown sugar and cooled chocolate mixture.  Stir well.  Sift in flour and coco and stir mixture.

Add choc chips and stir to combine.  OR omit choc chips and top cookies before baking with smartie look-a-likes*.

Drop tablespoons of mixture onto prepared trays, allowing room for spreading.  Put two trays in the oven at a time.  Bake for 10 minutes or until tops feel firm, BUT swap trays halfway through the cooking time.

Stand on trays for 10 minutes, then put cookies on a wire rack to cool immediately.

Repeat with the other 2 trays.

* The smartie look-a-likes I used are Little Gems from Organic Times.  I purchased a 500 g packet from a local store, Organic Life on Woolcock Street.
