Nutella Double Choc Cookies (双重巧克力曲奇)

饼干怪兽的要求下,我做了这款香醇浓厚的巧克力饼干才有办法堵住他的嘴巴,嘻嘻!
在圣诞期间用这个简单又好吃的饼干来招待亲朋好友或送礼,也是不错的选择哦!
为了控制体重问题,我尽量减糖和改用72%纯黑巧克力,这样的甜度对我们来说刚刚好。
这是我就今年的最后一个贴子。在这里先恭祝大家圣诞节快乐, 新年快乐! 2014年见咯!

Upon request from my cookies monster, I baked this rich with aroma chocolate cookies for him. It can be served as very nice christmas cookies or as gift pack gift to friends and families. For those who are on diet and health conscious, I reduced the sugar content by replacing it with 72% dark chocolate. Even though it is differ from original's recipe, the sweetness would be just nice for us.

This is my last post for Year 2013, See you all in Year 2014!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014!

你也来一片嘛!

Nutella Double Choc Cookies  (Nutella 双重巧克力曲奇)
(Recipe source : adapted from Helena's Kitchen)
(I used half of the ingredients and as orange colour shown below)

Ingredients
250g butter, cubed at room temperature (125g)
1 cup caster sugar (reduced to 80g)
½ cup brown sugar (reduced to 40g)
100g chocolate, melted and slightly cooled (I used 50g Valrhona 72% cocoa Dark Chocolate)
2 eggs (1 egg)
3 tablespoons Nutella (1.5tbsp)
3 cups plain flour, sifted (210g)
1 cup roasted pistachio, roughly chopped or halved (60g)
230g chocolate chips (I used  70g choc chips + 30g chopped almond )

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180˚C.
2. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick parchment or with silicone mats
      In the bowl of a food processor/stand mixer or using a hand-held mixer,beat together softened butter, caster sugar and brown sugar for 8-10 minutes until super creamy, smooth and fluffy.
3. Add the cooled, melted chocolate and beat again lightly to combine.Crack in the 2 eggs, add the Nutella and combine.Add the flour, nuts and chocolate chips and stir to incorporate everything together thoroughly.
4. Using a teaspoon distribute the mixture evenly over the two trays and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cookies are crisp and golden.

Note :
To achieve a more styled look half way through baking remove the trays and add a few extra halved hazelnuts and chocolate chips to the tops of the cookies then return to the oven.

Thanks a lot to Helena's Kitchen!
