MILK CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

I love milk chocolate and ever since Francine Menard introduced us to Cocao Barry Ghana 40% Milk Chocolate I have come to appreciate the caramel and hazelnut tones in this particular milk chocolate. A perfect little treat for your Valentine or anytime.

Makes about 48 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract or paste
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 lb Cocao Barry Ghana 40% Milk Chocolate Pistoles (or other milk chocolate pieces)

Method

  1. In a mixer cream butter with white and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla.
  2. In a large bowl sift or mix together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix creamed butter mixture into flour mixture and knead together with a wooden spoon or your hands. Mix in chocolate. Refrigerate dough at least one hour or overnight.
  3. Place dough in 1.5" balls on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 10 to 11 minutes or until cookies are just browning a little. Cool on wire racks. I like them chewy.
