 HI Friends,
Today we would make chocolate chips filled chocolate cookies. This is an ultimate fantasy of a chocolate lover and liked by everyone. A must try i should say.

  • All purpose flour (maida) - 1/2 cup
  • Powder brown sugar - 2 tbsp
  • Butter - 2 tbsp ( salted )
  • Cocoa powder - 1 tbsp
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla essence - 10 drops
  • Choco chips - 1/3 cup
  • Melted chocolate - 1 tsp

How to melt chocolate in microwave: 
Chocolate should be on room temperature. microwave it for 20secs and then try to mix it. If chocolate becomes soft and turns into thick paste it is melted else it needs more heating. Reheat for 10 secs and try the mixing again. Put chocolate for short time bursts and not for a continuous long time, else it may burn.

How to melt chocolate on gas stove: 
Take water in a bowl and heat it. put another small bowl on top it. Basically we want to trasnfer heat from boiled water to this another pan. Chocolate should be on room temperature.Put it in the inner bowl and slowly stir it to mix it....once it turns soft take it off and mix it well. This technique is called double boiler.

  • Blend butter and sugar in mixing bowl. Blend it till it becomes white and creamy. 
  • Now add vanilla essence, chocolate and mix it well. Keep it aside.
  • Sieve all purpose flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in a separate bowl.
  • Now mix the dry ingredient in the wet ingredient and mix it well. Make a dough of this.
  • Take a dough and put it in the fridge for half an hour.

  • After half an hour take out the dough. make small balls from the dough.   
  • Make an impression in the center of cookie with thumb and  put the choco chips in the center. Cover and roll in the ball. (This is similar the way you do filling in kachori)

  • Place on the baking try . Put the baking tray in the preheated oven and let it bake for about 15 mins at 160 c.
  • Keep an eye on it, check it once after 10mins. 
  • Cookies are done, sprinkle a bit of powder sugar for garnishing.

             It is difficult to know when chocolate cookies are done. Check the side of the cookies, if it is hard then cookies are baked.
             For preheating switch on both rods.
             Butter should be at room temperature.
