  • 10 ounces 300 g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), coarsely chopped
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 ounces 100 g good quality white chocolate, coarsely chopped


  • Place chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave on 50% power for 2-3 minutes, until 80% melted.  Add butter and stir until chocolate and butter are both melted.  Stir in sugar and vanilla extract.  Slowly add eggs, whisking constantly with a fork until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.  Add to chocolate mixture and stir to combine.  Stir in three-quarters of the chopped white chocolate.  Chill dough 30 minutes (or overnight).
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Form dough into 2" balls.  Press a white chocolate chunk into the top of each cookie ball and place 2" apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.  Bake 7-9 minutes, until set at edges and starting to crack but still sof in the centre. Cool a few minutes on baking sheets then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
