Recently I was invited to a morning tea and everyone brought a plate. One lady called Jenny brought a plate of some truly wonderful chocolate chip cookies. When I mentioned how good they were, she told me that they were copies of the famous Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies with a little adaptation, where she had made them completely chocolatey.
So here is Jenny’s version which were wolfed down, hardly making it to the second glass of tea.
- 400g plain flour
- 1 tsp bi carb soda / baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 250g margarine, not butter as we want these gooey. Butter makes them hard.
- 3 Tbsp cocoa
- 300g sugar
- 2 Tbsp molasses / pekmez
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 250g pack of chocolate bits / melts
- Heat oven to 180C
- Gently melt margarine with the cocoa
- Mix in a large bowl the dry ingredients, flour, salt, soda and sugar
- Add melted margarine and cocoa, mix well
- Add in the molasses, vanilla and eggs
- Mix until completely bound
- Lastly add in the chocolate bits, mix well
- Roll dough into small balls and place on ungreased baking tray
- Bake until brown around the edges which will take roughly 10 minutes
- They will continue cooking a little after being removed from oven
- Allow to cool for 2 mins before putting on a cooling rack
