Ingredients

  • 225g unsalted butter , softened
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 175g dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs , beaten
  • 300g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp cayenne pepper (less or more to taste)
  • 100g bar dark chilli chocolate , roughly chopped
  • 100g bar white chocolate , roughly chopped
  • 100g bar dark chocolate , roughly chopped
  • vanilla ice cream

Method

  • STEP 1

    Beat the butter and sugars together, then gradually mix in the vanilla and eggs. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, a pinch of salt, baking powder and cayenne pepper, then mix these into the butter and fold in all the chocolate.

  • STEP 2

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Place walnut-sized spoonfuls of the mixture on baking sheets lined with baking parchment, leaving enough space between so they don’t melt together. Bake in batches, for 10-12 mins, depending on how gooey you like your cookies. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 1 min before removing to a plate to cool completely. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
