Salted Chocolate and Coffee Cookies

Charlotte Hu

The combination of dark chocolate and coffee is so irresistible to me. This recipe for 12 cookies has been adapted from My Daily Morsel.

1 tbsp espresso powder
55g butter, grated
180g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 large egg
65g caster sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
30g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Maldon salt

Preheat oven to 150°C. Add 1 tbsp espresso powder and 55g grated butter to 180g dark chocolate. Slowly melt the mixture in a bowl over simmering water until smooth and glossy, then cool. Add 1 large egg, 65g caster sugar and ½ tsp vanilla extract. Whisk 30g plain flour with 1 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt into the mix. Leave the combined mix in the fridge overnight. Space tablespoon-sized scoops of the cookie mix along a baking tray. Cook for 10 minutes then sprinkle with a little Maldon salt.
