The double chocolate chip cookies

It took me quite a while to figure this out. For some strange reason I couldn’t understand why I can’t get the right texture for the cookies – I like my cookies to be crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. I did a little research and read up about the difference between Dutch processed and natural cocoa powder from Sally’s baking addiction. Basically the bottom-line is natural cocoa powder is always paired with baking soda and dutch processed cocoa powder is paired with baking powder. It’s all about the science!

Tips to make the best double chocolate chip cookies

  1. Make the cookie dough at least one day in advance and chill it in the refrigerator overnight
  2. Use real chocolate chunks – I buy blocks of cadbury chocolate and chop it up so that I get huge chunks of chocolates in my cookies
  3. Make sure that the butter is softened to room temperature
  4. Roll the chocolate chunks individually into the cookie dough to ensure that every piece of cookie gets an even spread of goodness
