Unsweetened cocoa powder

Baking powder

Vanilla essence

Pinch of salt

Pecan nuts, toasted and coarsely chopped

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 160oC/325oF/Gas 3. Grease two large baking sheets. In a medium saucepan over a low heat, melt the plain chocolate and butter until smooth, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from the heat to cool slightly.
  • Beat the eggs and sugar for 2-3 minutes until pale and creamy. Gradually beat in the melted chocolate mixture. Beat in the flour, cocoa, baking powder, vanilla and salt, just to blend.
  • Add the nuts, chocolate chips and chocolate pieces.
  • Drop 4-6 heaped tablespoonfuls of the mixture on to each baking sheet 10cm apart and flatten each to a round about 7.5cm.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until the tops are shiny and cracked and the edges look crisp.
  • Remove the baking sheets to a wire rack to cool for about 2 minutes, until the cookies are just set, then remove them to the wire rack to cool completely.
  • Continue to bake in batches.
