A Recipe: Toblerone Chocolate Chip Cookies (variation of Donna Hay's 'The New Classics' recipe, Chocolate Chip Cookies)
Happy Valentine's Day my readers! As a way of showing my love for my friends and family this year, I decided to bake some red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing as well as some of these bad boys. Warm and gooey chocolate chip cookies with Toblerone pieces.
Toblerone Chocolate Chip Cookies (makes 22)
1 cup (175g) brown sugar
3/4 cup (165g) white sugar
150g unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (225g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
400g Tolberone chocolate, chopped
Preheat oven to 160*C (325*F). Place the brown and white sugars, butter and vanilla in an electric mixer and beat for 8-10 minutes or until pale and creamy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg, beating well to combine. Add the flour, salt and baking powder and beat, on low speed, until a dough forms.
Fold through the Toblerone chocolate. Roll 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time into balls, and flatten slightly. Place on lightly greased baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper, allowing room to spread. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool on trays.
Easy Peasy cookies and you can make them even more special by wrapping it in pink and white tissue paper and some twine. Happy Valentine's! <3
