Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookies

Had a go at making Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookies today after getting the recipe from an aymer :) They turned out pretty well-its the first time that I've made cookies that have stayed soft and "gooey" in the centre even after they've cooled!

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookies Recipe

250g butter, softened
1tsp vanilla extract
165g caster sugar
165g brown sugar
1 egg
300g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (or alternatively use self raising flower)
120g finely chopped or grated dark chocolate
120g finely chopped or grated milk chocolate
120g finely chopped or grated white chocolate
(45g finely chopped roasted hazelnuts or 60g mini marshmallows are an optional extra)

-Preheat oven to 180 degrees or Gas Mark 4 if you've got an old fashioned gas cooker like me :)

-Grease baking trays, line with baking paper.

Leave on top of oven so they warm up whilst you're making the cookies.

-Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl, then add vanilla extract and egg, beating until light and fluffy.

-Stir in flower, cocoa (and bicarbonate of soda if appropriate.) Adding this in two batches makes it easier to mix.

Stir in chocolate (and nuts or marshmallows if appropriate.)

-Roll level tablespoons of dough into balls and place approx. 5cm apart on baking tray. (Do not be tempted to make these balls any larger, they make surprisingly large cookies!)#

Bake for 12-14 minutes (no longer as this prevents them from turning "gooey" when they harden.)
-Leave to cool, and then enjoy!

Makes 25-30 cookies (or more if you roll them into smaller balls)

Preparation time up to 1 hour
