Recipe: Triple Chocolate Chilli Cookies

You know, I never really understood the whole chilli chocolate thing. That is, until NOW. These cookies are really lovely and moreish, and I like to use a mix of chocolates, Because I don't like too much dark chocolate (too bitter, not sweet enough), too much milk chocolate, or too much white chocolate (a little sickly), so having a mix is really nice. You can taste the chilli as a slight tingle, like an after-taste after eating the cookies, really nice.

Triple Chocolate Chilli Cookies (makes about 40)

225 salted butter
275g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
270g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp hot chilli flakes/ hot chilli powder
100g Lindt dark chocolate with chilli, finely chopped
100g milk chocolate, finely chopped
100g white chocolate, finely chopped

1)      Preheat the oven to 180C. Cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in the vanilla extract and eggs. Mix in all the other ingredients until well combined.
2)      Roll the dough into roughly 30g balls. Line a tray with greaseproof paper. Bake the cookies (I bake these in batches of 8, as they spread) for 11 minutes. Remove, and allow to cool. These are then ready to serve, perfect with a cuppa!
