Chocofill cookies|Cookies filled with chocolate






Chocofill cookies are soft chewy cookies with bursting chocolate in the centre. In short  it would be a chocolate lovers paradise.Soft ,chewy,buttery cookies with melt in the mouth, smooth ganache are just good enough to hypnotise any one .You just need a glass of chilled milk and a box full of cookies to pamper your self .These  chocofill cookies were so yummy that I couldn't control my self gorging on it.


Unfortunately this happens to be the first cookie recipe on the blog .I usually bake cookies at night,I cant shoot with out natural light  and  in the morning kids carry them to school for the gang of friends leaving one or two for me. In sha Allah I have lined up a few more recipes of cookies on the blog.



As edible gifts are much in vogue these days chocofill cookies end up as an excellent gift for the loved ones.Cookies can be filled with chocolate too ,but if you like liquid chocolate oozing out then go for this recipe to the T.

Notes

  1. I have used Hershey's semi sweet chocolate chips ,cadbury cocoa powder ,alamarai whipping cream.
  2. Temperature differs from oven to oven so use your discretion while baking.
  3. Though the original recipe suggests 160 c,as I have a small oven so I have gone for 150 c.

  3. The dough is a bit sticky as we roll it and stuff with the ganache. . Any idea why it is so and how to correct it?

  4. Be quick as you can,after removing from the refrigerator,the warmth of the hands too will make the butter melt and make sticky. Place it in freezer for 10 minutes before stuffing ganache if it becomes too sticky .hope that works 😊
