My delicious chewy chocolate cookies: irresistible soft chocolate goodies… And what a great homemade yummy gift idea as well!
So how are your baking skills?
Do you like baking, or are you more into the savory stuff?
I am more of a savory chef than a baker really. Just because I have a weakness for salty food, and not so much a sweet tooth.
Not that I don’t like desserts at all, on the contrary.
True, if I see that there’s a cheese option on a restaurant menu for dessert, then I will definitely go for the cheese.
No doubt about that.
But if there is none, I am totally OK with a sweet touch to finish dinner.
What I am not really fond of is chocolate.
There, I said it. And it might seem very strange to hear that out of the mouth of a Belgian girl, I know. Chocolate is not something that I buy for myself, but for my husband who is a chocoholic. And a dessert lover.
So from time to time I dust off my baking skills and I try to come up with a sweet treat for him. Preferably one with chocolate in it.
Best Chewy Chocolate Cookies
These chewy chocolate cookies are the first cookies ever that I drizzle with melted chocolate.
I always backed out of this plan before because I thought I would definitely make a mess of the cookies, my kitchen counter and even myself.
But somehow I stood my ground this time and went for it.
And they surprisingly turned out well, I have to say!

Best Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe
My delicious chewy chocolate cookies: irresistible soft chocolate goodies... And what a great homemade yummy gift idea as well!
- ½ cup unsalted butter (115 g), soft
- 7 oz caster sugar (200 g)
- 1 cup plain flour (125 g)
- ½ cup cocoa powder (60 g)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 4 oz dark chocolate (115 g)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 egg
1) Add the soft unsalted butter and caster sugar to a clean blender.
2) Pulse into a smooth mixture for 30 seconds. Then add 3,5 oz (100 g) of the dark chocolate chunks.
3) Pulse again. Add the plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon together with a pinch of salt.
4) Blend again. Then add the cocoa and the egg.
5) Pulse into a very firm and thick chocolate cookie dough.
6) Transfer it onto a clean surface and knead it for a minute.
7) Then roll it out until about ⅓ inch (8 mm) thickness. If the dough sticks too much, put it in the fridge for a couple of minutes to chill. Cut out cookies using whatever shape you want. Mine were about bite-size.
8) Transfer the cookies onto a piece of baking paper.
9) Bake the chocolate cookies in a preheated oven at 359°F (180°C) for 15 minutes. After that let the baked cookies cool fully at room temperature. Then add the rest of the dark chocolate chunks to a small saucepan.
10) Place it over medium-low heat and gently melt the chocolate.
11) Drizzle the melted chocolate with a spoon over the cookies.
12) Put them in the fridge to dry. Serve.
