These are from Mrs. Field's chocolate cookbook - I modified it a lot because her recipe involved putting melted chocolate into the mixture which I couldnt be bothered doing...
One thing about American recipes is that they always end up being too sweet. I've learnt to reduce the sugar but even then it's just guesswork. These cookies still ended up being slightly too sweet although I'd reduced the sugar by 1/5. Perhaps american sugar is less sweet than ours ?
but, they were yummy anyhow!
here's the modified recipe:
cream 220g butter, 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, 3 eggs + 2 tsp vanilla
in another bowl, whisk 2 cups plain flour, 3/4 cups cocoa powder + 1 tsp baking soda
fold flour mixture in, then stir in 340g chocolate chips.
preheat oven to 150C, drop by the tablespoons 2 inches apart. Bake for 18-22 mins, cool for 1 minute on baking tray, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
