Chocolate cookies


  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • In a bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and the finely chopped chocolate couverture, using a wooden spoon.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the melted chocolate couverture, the brown sugar, the granulated sugar, and beat with the whisk attachment at medium speed for 4-5 minutes, until the butter is fluffy.
  • Add the egg, the yolk, the vanilla extract, and beat for a few seconds until the mixture is homogenized.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the mixture of the solid ingredients into the bowl. Mix with a spatula until there is a uniform dough.
  • Shape into round cookies, 40 g each, and lightly press their center with your hand so to make them wider.
  • Transfer the cookies to a baking pan lined with parchment paper, and place them one next to the other by leaving a gap between them, as they will spread while baking.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven and let the cookies thicken completely, onto a rack, for about 30 minutes. When you remove the cookies from the oven, they will be very soft but they will thicken while cooling.
  • Serve, optionally, with milk.


Store in jars or bowls by sealing them airtight with plastic wrap.

Preserve them for 5 days at room temperature.
