Airfryer Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Melt in your mouth dark chocolate chunk cookies made with delicious 70% dark chocolate, brown sugar and honey. A chocolate addicts dream come true.
Beat the brown sugar into the butter until it is nicely creamed and you don’t have that gritty brown sugar feeling.
Stir in the white sugar, honey, vanilla, salt and egg. After a quick mix return to the hand mixer for a couple of minutes or until it is well mixed. Use a fork to get the excess from down the sides of the bowl.
Add the flour and mix well and then use your hands to form cookie shapes.
Layer them onto a chopping board or a clean worktop.
Using your hands break up the dark chocolate into ¼ of a chunk so that each square has 4 pieces. Now push those pieces into the top of the cookies so that they remain at the top and will be easily visible when cooked.
Place them onto the grill pan inside of the Airfryer and cook for 10 minutes on 180c/350f.
Serve with milk.
Go with a decent quality dark chocolate. Aim for around the 70-75% cocoa for the best results.
Remember to use self raising flour when possible. It has a raising agent already in it and it saves buying lots of other add on products.
Never use cups to measure with as they give inaccurate results as cups mean different things around the world and they are never levelled good enough from kitchen to kitchen. So get out your scales and do it in either ounces or grams. Grams are best though as they are the more accurate and will give you the best results.
One of my favourite things to do is to chop up the chocolate pieces with a julienne peeler set. You can then give the impression of big chocolate chips without having to buy a separate pack from the supermarket. Or alternatively melt your chocolate into pretty moulds.
I like to make my dark chocolate chunk cookies into roughly 3 tablespoon size per cookie. Use your hands to make the dough balls and it will be of an easy sticky mixture to roll out with.
A good tip – flour your hands prior to rolling them out as it will help stop them sticking to your hands.
