Adapted from one of my favourite cookie recipes from Pinch of Yum, these delicious cookies are seriously indulgent as well as a little bit more ‘grown-up’ than your typical chocolate chip cookies.

Instead of chocolate chips, I like to use a bar of my favourite dark or semi-sweet chocolate (my preference just now is Cadbury’s Dark Milk) so you can have some nice big chocolatey chunks. I roughly chopped my hazelnuts, but if you love a seriously chunky cookie you could definitely leave them whole.

Perfect served with a mid-afternoon cup of tea, or as an after-dinner treat on a cosy evening on the sofa. I guarantee you will want to make these cookies over and over again.

Prep Time 10 minutes

Servings 12 cookies

Ingredients

  • 115 gram unsalted butter soft but not melted
  • 150 gram soft, light brown sugar
  • 250 grams plain flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 free-range egg
  • Β½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ΒΌ tsp salt, plus an extra optional pinch if you like your chocolate enhanced with salt
  • 85 gram bar of dark or semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped I love Dark Milk
  • 75 gram blanched hazelnuts, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180oc/350 Fahrenheit/gas 4 and line your baking sheet(s) with baking or greaseproof paper (I always use 2 with 6 cookies each but if you only have 1 you can bake them in batches)

  2. Cream the butter and sugar with an electric whisk or in the bowl of a stand mixer.

  3. Add the vanilla and egg and beat until just incorporated.

  4. Add the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda in batches, mixing thoroughly with a wooden spoon or spatula.

  5. Mix in the chocolate and hazelnuts, making sure they are evenly distributed.

  6. Using a cookie or ice cream scoop (or a dessert spoon if you don't have either) scoop and shape 12 balls and place them on the cookie sheet or baking trays – I'd suggest 6 per tray to avoid making yourself 1 huge cookie mess. If the dough is a bit too soft to handle and shape, stick it in the fridge for a little bit.

  7. Bake in your preheated oven for 9-12 minutes, until they are just beginning to turn golden brown, then leave to cool on the trays for 20-30 minutes before serving.

  8. If you can manage to avoid eating them all at once, they will store in an airtight container for 2 days (I don't know who I'm kidding here, because a batch of these never last 24 hours in my house!)
