Chocolate Chip Cookies with Thermomix

When I fancy a sweet treat I usually eat two or three Chocolate Chip Cookies like these :-)

They're very easy to make but the greatest fact is that using Thermomix it's even quicker!

Here you are two recipes to prepare these cookies.

The first one is very interesting and it has been created by Eli after various tries.

The second recipe has been sent by Michela Bernacchi from Florence who said "they are very light and tasty, they're perfect for your breakfast or your children's snack".

These cookies are very famous in America of course and I love them because children finally love home-made cookies more than industrial snacks!

If you are a chocoholic like me, pay attention!
While cooking they give off a special aroma and it's very difficult to resist and waiting for them to should at least let them get cold.

You like chocolate cookies I suggest you try the yummy Chocolate Biscuits. Or if you want to delight yourself with other recipes without chocolate try the Honey Biscuits or the traditional Italian Canestrelli.

3rd Recipe
by Laura Lustrissimi


- 125 g Dark Chocolate
- 125 g White Chocolate
- 125 g Butter at room temperature
- 125 g Brown Sugar
- 175 g Self-Raising Flour (or 175 g flour + 7-8 g baking powder)

How to prepare the Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grind the two different chocolates and mix. A few Sec. Speed 7. Put aside.

Put the other ingredients into the bowl for about 30 Sec. Speed 4-5.

Add the ground chocolates and mix. 30 Sec. Speed 3. Counter-clockwise.

Use a spoon to pick some mixture and place on a baking tray covered with greaseproof paper.

Cook for about 5 Min. into pre-heated oven at 190°C until cookies are golden.

Let the cookies stand outside the oven to let them harden then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Laura's suggestions

I must say I tried many recipes but I think this one is the best one. I adapted it myself for Thermomix so I'm not so sure about the speeds. I think it's better using dark chocolate chips to avoid "dirtying" the dough while white chocolate is not a problem even if crumbled. I think it does not exist in chips...
Let me tell you another thing: don't be tempted to flatten the cookies, they will do so in the oven anyway.

My advice

Preserve your chocolate chip cookies in a tin box: they'll remain crunchy for many days ;-)
