Taste



Chocolate Sweet Hearts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 115grams dark chocolate, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg

Method

  1. In a bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water, place chocolate, butter, and brown sugar; stir frequently until almost completely melted. Remove from heat, and stir until completely melted; let cool slightly.
  2. Add egg to chocolate mixture. With a mixer on low, beat until well blended. Gradually stir in flour mixture (dough will form a ball).
  3. Divide dough in half; roll out each half on a sheet of baking paper to a 1/2cm thickness. Transfer each half (still on paper) to a baking sheet; freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Working with one half at a time, flip dough onto a work surface; peel off paper. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies; place, 3cm apart, on two baking sheets. Bake until firm and fragrant, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool.
