Chocolate Mud Cookies

Chocolate Mud Cookies here we come!

Let’s get started by finely chopping the dark chocolate, I find the easiest way to to this is with the food processor.

Next beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until pail golden colour, making sure that the butter is at room temperature; add the egg and combine.

Now it’s time for the dry ingredients, sift in the flour and cocoa powder, add the chocolate and stir until dough is formed.

Spoon the dough on the baking trays, I find this easiest using a ice cream scoop, and your are ready to bake.
