Chocolate Dulce De Leche Cookies

It's been a long time since I last made cookies.
 

Back when I was at school, there was a certain brand of freshly baked cookies which had its stall in the middle of a shopping mall near my school. I had to walk through this mall to get to the tube station where I took the train home, and without fail I had to stop and buy a cookie or two for my trip home on most days. I ended up buying cookies so regularly from them that eventually the stall seller gave me a discount card which was only meant for employees. You can bet I was the envy of all my friends!

 
So now you know how much I love cookies.
 
I had a small jar of dulce de leche already which needed to be used up when I saw this recipe. It makes perfectly crunchy on the outside, soft in the inside cookies, and I love the addition of the dulce de leche. Plus they are chocolatey in the best way.
 
 
The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. I have nothing much left to say except make these because you can't go wrong!
 

In the meantime Eid is only about ten days away now, and I'm planning on making some more chocolate goodness which I  can't wait to share!
 
Chocolate Dulce De Leche Cookies
 
Recipe adapted from Call Me Cupcake
 
Makes about 20 cookies
 
55g butter
150g brown sugar
25g cocoa powder
50g dark and white chocolate chips
1 large egg
1/4 tspn salt
1/4 tspn baking powder
130g all-purpose flour
1/3 cup dulce de leche
White chocolate chips to decorate
 
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius, and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Melt the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and chocolate chips in a saucepan. Take off the heat and stir in the egg and salt. Mix the flour with the baking powder in a bowl, and then add to the saucepan mixture. Stir until well combined. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. Remove and roll small amounts of dough into balls, then using your finger press to make a well in the middle of each ball. Fill the hole with dulce de leche and flatten a small piece of dough on top to cover. Seal the edges well. Decorate with white chocolate chips. Leave a little space between the cookies to let them spread, and bake between 10-15 minutes.

This recipe has been entered into the Safest Choice Eggs recipe contest hosted on Bakeaholic Mama and Buns In My Oven.

  4. Ooh you've just made my day with these beauties - I'm always on the look-out for new choc biscuit recipes! And like Winnie I will make my own dulce de leche for these - by simply boiling a tin of condensed milk in a large pot of water for ca 2 hours!
