chocolate almond cookies

There are very few people who are not fond of this highly addictive thing called CHOCOLATE!!!No matter how hard you try to avoid you just can't!!Rarely does it happen that we have some chocolate lying ignored in our food cupboard.But I had some variety of chocolates lying in my cupboard for long so I thought of making some cookies ...and these are not just some cookies...these are meant for all you chocolate lovers...chocolaty,nutty,good enough to drive you crazy...!!!If you don't believe me just go ahead and try these !!!



200 gm chocolate( I used left over chocolates you can use cooking dark chocolates for better results )
150 gm plain flour
30 gm cocoa powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
125gm butter
120 gm brown sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
2 tbsp chopped almonds


Place the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl and mix well.
Melt the chocolate using a double boiler or microwave 
In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the melted chocolate and stir well.Beat in the vanilla extract and crack in the egg, then mix in the dry ingredients. Finally stir in the chopped almonds.Scoop out 12 equal portions of the mixture onto a lined baking sheet.Transfer to the oven and bake for 18 minutes, then test with a skewer - it should come out semi-clean and not wet with batter. Leave the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 4-5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to harden as they cool.

Till me meet next HAPPY BAKING !!!
