Preheat oven 175 degrees (350 farenheit)
225 g butter, softened
125 g white sugar
150 g packed muscovado sugar
10 ml vanilla extract
350 g all-purpose flour
5 g baking soda
10 ml hot water
pinch of salt
200-250 g black chocolate roughly chopped in small chunks (or chocolate chips if you prefer)
Cream the butter with the white and brown sugar.
Add the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla, baking soda (mixed with the hot water to dissolve), salt and flour. Mix well and add the chocolate chunks (or chips). I like to make my own chunks but chocolate chips are good too. Instead of black chocolate, you can use white, praline, milk chocolate. As you like!
Take a teaspoon and create a little ball and line them up on a non-stick cookie pan. Make sure the portions are not too big or your cookies will be too large. Bake for 10 min max – you want them chewy in the middle. Remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
