Back to school – Double chocolate chip cookies with origami paper pouch fold tutorial


double chocolate chip cookiesBack to school means summer is over. I still recall this period of time from my childhood; full of excitement and concern. But this time is different, it’s my precious boy’s first year at school. Yes, my baby love is all grown up now… I have mixed feelings; i am happy, proud and anxious.

Hopefully it will be a good new beginning to a promising future. I wish you all the luck habibi Nady.

Like all kids of his age, he is fond of chocolate. I said why not preparing together a nice chocolaty dessert for his first day at school; double chocolate chip cookies for double happiness!

double chocolate chip cookiesTo prepare these rich cookies you will need

  • ½ cup butter (100g almost), softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cocoa powder sifted
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 180°C, and prepare your baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and sugar. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Add the baking soda, salt, cocoa powder and flour. Mix well then dump in your chocolate chips. I am telling you it’s very simple to make it 🙂

Shape the cookies, place them on the tray and bake for 10 minutes. This quantity makes 12-14 big pieces. Let them cool before serving.
