Alternative Chocolate Cookie Recipe

I'm posting a guest post from an author from UK about this fantastic Alternative Chocolate Cookie Recipe.
Some people struggle to make cookies, either because they struggle to follow the recipe, the method seems too difficult, or simply because the mixture looks too good and they don't make it into the oven. 

For those who want a simpler recipe to follow on their days off, the recipe below might be of help. It will be perfect for anyone who is a chocoholic, and wants to bake a snack to accompany them as they browse CheekyBingo and enjoy their day off work. 

You will need: 
100g chocolate, broken up 
340g chocolate chips 
85g butter 
3 eggs 
200g caster sugar 
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 
60g plain flour 
1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder 

  1. Put the cooking chocolate and 170g of the chocolate chips into a bowl, and either melt in the microwave, or place on top of a boiling pan of water. Stir the chocolate until fully melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and leave to cool down. 
  2. Then in a large mixing bowl, whip the eggs and sugar together until mixture is pale and thick. This should take about 2 minutes. Next stir in the vanilla extract and the melted chocolate, mixing until well blended together. 
  3. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and gradually stir the chocolate mixture. A folding motion works best. When the dry ingredients have been combined with the wet ones, add the remaining 170g of chocolate chips. 
  4. Cover the mixture over and leave it to chill for an hour (overnight is better). Then preheat the oven to 180 C and roll the dough balls so they are no more than 3 cm. Place them on a baking tray, roughly 5cm apart to allow for growth. 
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes and leave to cool and serve.
