Chocolate Chews

As the last installment of the chocolate trilogy, I leave you with these chocolate chews. As the name suggests, these are more than cookies. When eaten warm, they taste more like brownies with so little fat. When eaten cold, they are soft and slightly chewy. With so much chocolate, they got to taste great. It took only about 15 minutes to get ‘em into the oven. This easy, but tasty cookie is my entry to Eat Christmas Cookies, hosted by Susan of Food Blogga.

Chocolate Chews

Ingredients

Semi sweet chocolate – ¾ cup
Butter – 1½ tbsp
Instant coffee – ½ tbsp

Method

Preheat oven to 375F. Melt chocolate, butter and coffee together in a microwave and let it cool. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.

In a separate bowl, beat sugar and egg together until thick. Whisk the melted chocolate into the egg mixture along with vanilla extract. Gently fold in the dry ingredients. And finally stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop heaped tablespoons of the dough onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 19 minutes. The cookies cracks on top when they are done. Cool on a wire rack. This recipe yields 8 good sized cookies.

Perfect cookies, and so easy...thanks!

Sid said...

I tried these today and they were sinfully delicious :)
Only one problem though... the chocolate chips melted when i baked them. Did you have the same problem? Is there any way i can ensure the chocolate chips don't melt while baking?
Thanks for a great recipe!!!

Suganya said...

Sid, I didn't have problems with chocolate chips melting. Were the cookies warm? Once cooled, the chips harden again and would not melt. It may also be the brand of the chocolate chips. I am not quite sure.

sid said...

Ohh... well actually they tasted soo good that i dint wait for them to cool down :D maybe that's the reason! But even with melted chocolate bits, it tasted great!! I'll definitely be making these again! And again :p
Thanks alot !
