  • Squidgy double-choc cookies from Essentials magazine are at their best still warm from the oven and are a taste of chocolate heaven

    Ingredients

    • 50g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
    • 50g golden syrup 
    • 200g butter, at room temperature
    • 225g light soft brown sugar 
    • 1tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 medium free-range eggs
    • 325g plain flour
    • 3⁄4tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1tsp baking powder 
    • 200g mixed chocolates (white, milk and dark) chopped into 1.5cm chunks

    Method

    • Heat oven to gas mark 4/180°C.

    • Melt dark chocolate and syrup together in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Leave to cool slightly.

    • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until pale.

    • Add the melted chocolate mix, vanilla and eggs, and whisk. Sift in flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder and mix thoroughly. Fold in half the chocolate chunks. Chill for 2-3 hours or longer to firm up.

    • Scoop the mixture into balls with a spoon and press out on lined baking trays (leave about 4cms between each). Bake for 10-12 mins, then remove from the oven and press the remaining chocolate chunks gently into each cookie.

    • Return to the oven for 2 mins. Cool on trays for a few mins, before transferring to a cooling rack.
